Bob Lefsetz and Jason Flom are on a speaking tour and land in Toronto on October 14 at The Phoenix Concert Theatre.


Lefsetz is the author of “The Lefsetz Letter.” Famous for being beholden to no one and speaking his mind, the music biz guru addresses the issues that are at the core of the music business: downloading, copy protection, pricing and the music itself.

Jason Flom is the current Chief Executive Officer of Lava Records. He has served, at times, as the Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records, Virgin Records, and the Capitol Music Group. In 1995, Flom founded Lava Records. He is also a philanthropist who has supported and championed various political and social causes. He is the host of the podcast Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom.

Flom is also one of the most successful A&R people of all time, having signed everybody from Kid Rock to Katy Perry, Tori Amos to Lorde and now Greta Van Fleet.

"The Lefsetz Letter" is read by a who’s who in the music business, from Michael Rapino to Drake, from Irving Azoff to Steven Tyler. Come see these two debate the issues that matter in today’s cacophonous music business world, from getting signed, to marketing and distribution. Expect a no-holds-barred conversation where names are named and foibles and successes are illuminated. If you want to hear how the music business really works, The Phoenix on the 14th is the place to be.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
