Quote of the Day: Chris Lighty ~ Violator Management

Chris Lighty

“Hip-hop is the only business that allows the urban youth to have a voice, have fun, and make a living. Rejoice in the fact that there’s an option. We all can’t flow like Jay-Z, write hooks like 50, or sing like Mary, but I’ll be damned if you can’t carry a DJ’s record case, sweep up around the office, or intern until you are blue in the face. Hip-hop is the only business where you can, as my friend Kevin Liles put it, go from “intern to president”. You don’t always have to have a college education to go from rags to riches. Hip-hop is our generations dream and we should live it to the max! That is hip-hop, and hip-hop is you!”

Christ Lighty ~ President of Violator Management, Personal Manager of 50 Cent & Busta Rhymes
