Russell Simmons


Russell Simmons has been the leader in bringing the powerful influence of hip-hop culture to every facet of business, media and fashion since its inception in the late 1970s through current day in which its integration into mainstream American Culture has created an entirely new, post-racial, progressive new America.

Simmons’ businesses have always been rooted in giving a powerful voice to emergent new creative and social movements, and integrating them into the American psyche. His business successes have spanned music, film, television, fashion, video games, online and financial services; his activism has encompassed all of the areas touched by his businesses, including poverty, education, social justice and inclusion. – Rush Communications
