Steve Stoute Doesn’t Think 50 Cent Is Influential Today

On Monday night (Feb. 24), part one of Steve Stoute’s Tanning of America mini-doc premiered on VH1. Today, the business mogul talks with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez about hip-hop and rap’s most influential artists. Stoute quickly dubbed Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Puff and Kanye West as current influencers, and gave a nod to Pharrel Williams and Rick Ross before explaining why he’s leaving 50 off his list.

“50 hasn’t had a hit in a really long time. He has not made anything musically that has changed anything in a very really long time.” Stoute said. “I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content can get on the air.”
