Russell Simmons is one of the most underated (and successful) entrepeneurs out there imho. I highly recommend reading his book "Life and Def: Sex, Drugs, Money, + God" published by Random House if anyone's interested.
Ghettocities, I think you may be confusing Russell Simmons with Richard Simmons, the exercise guru. Russell Simmons is a very cool African-American. If you click on the link in my first post, there is a picture of him. Yeah, I'm not wild about Richard Simmons either!!
