Shawn “Pecas” Costner Talks Jeezy & Rick Ross Beef, G.O.O.D. Music & Def Jam Records, Part 1


Def Jam’s Sr. Vice President Shawn “Pecas” Costner sat down with the good folks over at Al Lindstrom, for “#DefJamBack” Part 1. Pecas discusses the assumption that Def Jam was moving away from its Hip-Hop acts and focusing more on R&B. He also speaks on the beef between labelmates Jeezy & Rick Ross, and his stance on the situation. 

“Rick Ross & Young Jeezy are both grown men, and there’s enough money in their prospective worlds of what they do,” said Pecas. “So I try and take that energy and put it towards making Big Sean a bigger artist…I don’t really get involved.”

The exec also spoke about Asher Roth, Pusha T, and much more.
