Time Warner Inc. capitulated to growing public pressure and agreed Wednesday Sept. 27, 1995 to get out of the gangsta rap business by selling its stake in the distributor of some of rap’s biggest stars. Time Warner’s decision to sell its 50 percent interest back to Interscope Records follows months of outcry over Time Warner’s role in promoting a musical style known for its violent, sexually explicit lyrics. Time Warner executives said the decision to dump the 5-year-old Los Angeles-based company, whose artists include jailed rapper Tupac Shakur and alternative rockers Nine Inch Nails, was based on creative control and had nothing to do with the merger.
