CULTURE CREATORS HONOR SYLVIA RHONE

Extra's Tamika Ray interviews Sylvia Rhone at the Culture Creators Awards.

Epic Records President Sylvia Rhone received the Icon Award at the third annual Culture Creators Awards, where she warned about protecting black culture.

“Our one common goal is to protect the culture,” Rhone said Friday at the Beverly Hilton to a crowd that included fellow honorees Shawn Gee of Live NationRCA’s Tunji Balogun and Roc Nation’s Jana Fleishman. “And now more than ever, since our culture has gotten so popular and those people who have never been a part of the culture but see that they can make a lot of money [on it], we have to watch very closely. There’s a feeding frenzy and [these] people are the buyers not the believers.”

DJ Khaled introduced Rhone as “someone that really cares about the music business and culture and where it’s going. And where it started.”

Culture Creators celebrates the accomplishments of minorities in music, technology, film, television, fashion, and other areas.
