    Default Irv/Def Jam Talk Sparking Up Again After Shakir Stewart Tragedy

    With the terrible news that Shakir Stewart, the man who took over for Jay-Z as VP of Def Jam, was found dead from an apparent suicide with a self inflicted gunshot wound there is talk again of who will now replace him. First off, RIP n condolences to his family. They had the funeral service down here today. It's just a very sad story. From everything I've heard he was a real good dude. He has alotta Atlanta ties. He went to Morehouse, signed Ciara, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross, and was instrumental in Rihanna n Ne-Yo's projects. DJ Khaled n Greg Street were also close personal friends n Greg is said to be distraught over this n even Lloyd knew him from his days at Sho Nuff.

    Now Def Jam has had a dry spell n Irv did help turn them around before. This was discussed before when the position was open n it didn't happen so I don't really think it's something that's likely due to how irrelevant Irv n the inc have become but just something to think about. The person that wrote this is obv. just a fan n has other posts about Ja on there so this isn't anything really but someone's opinion. And while most of us think Irv isn't doing an effective job running the inc let alone the job it would be at a big time record label the inc is in need of a label change imo n it would give Irv the job he prolly always wanted. And things were alot better at Def Jam n if Irv was given a high position, he would have the avenue to get proper promotion for the inc n not encounter the problems with album releases it's been since day one with Universal. I'm just not sure how high Def Jam regards him being it's pretty much totally different staff now.

    if u ask me....all irv is gonna do...is sign 400 artist to defjam..saying hes bringing them in money..and making defjam the number 1 powerhouse.....meanwhile....his focus on murder inc will be..little to none...

    we already know irv is so focused on being executive irv..u know..the guy who sings artist of different genres...makes some noise..hypes em up..but doesnt realease them......

    i wouldnt mind irv and murder inc back at def jam...but if irv becomes president...imo u can kiss murder inc goodbye...with that big head and big ego of his...hes just gonna go party with jayz and diddy/la reid/lyor/ the other big dogs..and say...i finally made it...

    but watever benifits ja rule..im down for..

    Irv is not that same dude back then tho. Cuz his mentality is like he dont give a fuck what anybody says. If he gon sign Souljah Boy to the Inc & make a record that pleases him, then its cool because he fears nothing he said. Maybe the old irv had limitations but this new irv doesnt seem to care anymore. Like signing any artists to The Inc. thinking they gon be beneficial when Rule hasn't popped off. Rule shud be his main priority & Newz at the same time. Let Chris Gotti or BJ oversee the unheard soon to be released artists. Common IRV!!!
