Steve Stoute, CEO of Translation Advertising, wants to let you know about hip-hop. Stoute has been kicking around hip-hip for centuries. He got his first gig working with Kid ‘N Play. Before entering the ad business, he was also a road manager, an A&R guy and a big deal music label executive. Mary J Blige, Nas, Mariah are all fans.
