Steve Stoute is one of the best ambassadors that hip-hop has. His experience and knowledge manifested itself in his book, The Tanning of America: How Hip-Hop Created a Culture That Rewrote the Rules of the New Economy. To promote the book, Stoute did a series of web interviews with Jay-Z, Pharrell, Jimmy Iovine, and Lady Gaga. That's enough to convince us of Gaga's hip-hop cred.
