All you youngin's making Bruce Willis jokes smh. Turn your textbooks to 1986. John Mcclain was the A&M mastermind exec whose genius idea sparked a revolution. Instead of killing a career after 2 lukewarm results (like execs do today) John's genius idea was to pair still under the radar Janet Jackson with on fire Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. That idea brought him into the stratosphere. Ill also note that he was the lone exec at Interscope that saw the genius in Slum Village signing them for 2 seconds at the label before the label scaled down chopping heads of artists and execs alike. Class done.
