Hip-Hop Mogul Steve Stoute stopped by NBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ and spoke on several topics. As the author of The Tanning of America, Stoute spoke on Hip-Hop culture’s influence, using Jay-Z‘s recent performance at Carnegie Hall as an example.

“Of all the things that took place, when Jay-Z sang ‘Juicy’ and just held the mic out into the crowd and they sang in unison…Wow!,” said Stoute. “This is Carnegie Hall, this is Jay-Z, he gave it up to Biggie and the crowd went for it. I just thought that this is a tanning moment. It shows how far we’ve come as a society… Music played a part in it but it was more than that, everyone was culturally there. Everyone knew the words and mannerisms as if they’d all watched the music video together”.
