The Source Magazine releases its 13th annual “Power 30” issue with double covers featuring Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Mack Maine of Cash Money/Young Money and the Black Eyed Peas.
“For the better part of 15 years, the Power 30 has been a staple not only for The Source but for those executive figures in and around music, business, entertainment and politics who have been creating and re-defining influence outside of the traditional sense of ‘who made the most money last year,’ but not receiving the recognition from corporate America,” says Rodriguez. “
The exponential growth of Hip-Hop into a billion dollar business has catapulted our executives into the spotlight and made them applicable to any “Power” list. It’s our job to document and give them their due props.”
