Rick Rubin has recently come back into the spotlight, having worked just this year with Kanye West, Eminem, Jay Z (well, not really worked, more like lay on the couch and nodded his head), and Lady Gaga. If you search for images of Rick Rubin, he seems to, without fail, be hanging out with famous people. Whether you’re a cool musician, movie director, or music industry bigwig, if you haven’t had your picture taken with the perma-bearded, almost always casually dressed producer, you’re probably not worth knowing.
