“Be very serious, be focused. You got nothing to lose in this game by being consistent, and not just thinking you are going to get in and make 100 million dollars, cause that’s not going to happen. Make a career; I rather sell 10 million records over ten years than 10 million records once, it’s a business," Chris Lighty.
For many Chris Lighty will be remembered as one of the most powerful figures in the hip hop business. A fundamental key player in transforming the rap game from being grimey to appealing to mainstream media, ushering in the era of white collared hip hop moguls.

The brain behind 50 cents’ energy drink which netted the rapper more than $400 million dollars and negotiating LL Cool J’s Gap endorsement back in 1999, which was one of the most genius case studies in hip hop to date. It was also momentous due to the fact that LL Cool J was the first rapper to ever be called on to endorse a mainstream apparel company.
“Jeans popping in every mall in town and city. G-A-P gritty, ready to go, for us, by us, on the low,” he rapped.

Lighty also claimed to have been instrumental in hooking up Gee and his client Drake with a Sprite endorsement, saying, "Here's a quick $850,000, let's get busy baby."
