Steve Lobel is one of the most legendary figures in the hip-hop industry. The esteemed music manager got into the scene back in the ’80s through the legendary Jam Master Jay and the rest of Run-DMC.
Lobel stopped by the No Judgment Zone with Blogxilla and dished on everything from working with Eazy-E and Bone Thugz, to being mentored by Russell Simmons. He even talked about working on reality TV shows before the industry became what it is today. He told Xilla:
“I started doing reality TV way before reality TV was big. I was on a private Jet with Russell and Yandy [Smith], Lazy Bone and Ludacris. We were doing the voter registration that Russell was genius to do. We did a tour…flying back on the private jet to New York, Yandy started talking to me ‘You have a great personality.’ Russell says, ‘You don’t know white boy Steve. Everyone knows White boy Steve!’ She took down my information, six months later got a call from Mona Scott who was doing a reality show with Missy Elliot, wanted me to play the manager. It was back in time, we were on UPN.”
