Interview by FuNkwoRm on 05-10-2009
Tommy Boy Records’ role in the history of hip hop has been of great significance. From the very beginning, artists on that label defined the very core of hip hop culture. Some of the most notable artists were, Afrika Bambaataa, Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Naughty by Nature, Digital Underground, and many, many more. I caught up with founder and CEO, Tom Silverman, to talk about his thoughts on the future of the music business and The New Music Seminar, an event Tom created to educate aspiring artist by bringing them together with music industry professionals and visionaries that are shaping the future of the business.
