HipHopDX Interview – Steve Rifkind

The past few decades have been quite kind to legendary music executive Steve Rifkind. Since the early days of working with his father Jules Rifkind at Spring Records, Steve has always had a special ear for the best urban music had to offer. Growing-up during Hip Hop’s early ages, it made perfect sense for him to use firsthand knowledge in forming his own label. With Loud Records, Rifkind became one of the many key figures in changing the culture’s business and creative trajectory.

    Here’s the thing with ‘compromise’. In 1959, Cyprus compromised its liamtiegte demand for enosis for a restricted and poisoned form of independence, which directly led to the Turkish invasion of the island. After the invasion, to avoid permanent partition, Cyprus decided to settle on the compromise of a bizonal, bicommunal federation. This resulted, ultimately, in the Annan plan, which outlined effectively a confederation of two independent states, i.e. permanent partition. Every ‘compromise’ Greeks have made over Cyprus has been a disaster, has in fact been capitulation. And yet the international community continues to ask us to compromise with Turkey, as if Turkey has any liamtiegte demands in Cyprus. It has none.It’s also worth pointing out Turkey’s negotiating tactics are well-known: the Turks demand you make concession in the name of compromise, and then once you make that concession, they say it is not enough and they come up with more concessions/compromises they want you to make, until all their demands have been met. No one has the right to ask Cypriots to make compromises and then accuse them of lacking humanity of failing to see the point of view of the ‘other’ if they don’t. If this is not malicious, then this is bullshit. Besides, who’s to say that ‘humanity’ doesn’t emerge from defiance and resistance and a commitment to truth and justice.And here’s another point regarding foreigners particularly of the Anglo-Saxon variety trying to tell us what to do and how to fulfil the criterion they have established for what it is to be ‘humane’ or not. Seferis, on a visit in the 1950s to America, with which he was unimpressed, had this to say:’The Americans are a people that has never suffered in its life how can they possibly understand us, those other peoples that have suffered so much.’
