75 Hip-Hop Songs That Name Drop LeBron James

dr dre jimmy iovine lyrics
Yesterday, Beats Electronics' $3 billion sale to Apple was confirmed after weeks of speculation—and maybe a little premature celebration—making Dr. Dre hip-hop's wealthiest artist, if not quite a billionaire. But another part of the deal which came to light yesterday was that Dre and his Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine—himself the co-founder of Interscope Records 25 years ago and until yesterday the chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M for more than a decade—would take executive positions at Apple. That means Iovine, the producer-turned-label chief who Billboard called the most successful major label industry head of the past quarter century, was to leave the label which became the longtime home to artists like Eminem, 50 Cent, Dre and Kendrick Lamar.

With such an extensive history in the music industry—especially in the hip-hop world, with affiliations with Death Row, Aftermath, Bad Boy, TDE, Shady Records, G-Unit, Star Trak and more—it's no surprise that Iovine is probably the most-referenced executive in hip-hop. As he leaves Interscope for the green pastures of the tech world, XXL has pulled together 33 hip-hop songs that name check the former Interscope chief. —Dan Rys
