Cashmere's chief creative officer on hip-hop, commercialized music—and the rise of '80s nostalgia
Ryan Ford is EVP, chief creative officer at marketing agency Cashmere, which is social media and PR agency of record for Jack in the Box. Before getting into marketing, he was the executive editor at The Source, the storied rap and hip-hop publication. On this episode of the "Ad Block" podcast, Ford talks about the music that influenced him when he was young and how it continues to impact his work now.
He also weighs in on lullabies for his new daughter (who guest stars for a bit), music distribution before the internet and how the pandemic is already changing the music people to listen to.
