For the first edition of his web series, “The Tanning Effect,” presented in partnership with AOL BlackVoices, Steve Stoute interviewed Jay-Z. In this latest edition, Stoute sits down with Interscope’s iconic executive, Jimmy Iovine. From Bruce Springstein to Dr. Dre to Eminem to Lady Gaga Iconic Iovine has fostered massively successful acts from all across the musical divide. In this interview Iovine discusses the unlikely structural similarities between “Satisfaction” by rock & roll titans “Rolling Stones” and Hip-Hop Living Legends Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s hip-hop anthem, “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang.” He also describes how he convinced Rolling Stone Magazine that Snoop and Dre were the new Mick Jagger and Keith Richard which led to them becoming the first rap act to grace the cover of the Worldwide recognize magazine.
