Russell Simmons returns to Def Jam Records as President/CEO

by Natalie Monique

Recently, we reported that L.A.Reid parted ways with Def Jam Records, seemingly due to a conflict of interest…WELL, guess who’s BACK, after over a decade..none other than Hip Hop pioneer, Entertainment Mogul and leading Entrepreneur, Mr. Russell Simmons. Simmons recently made a deal with Def Jam Records, where he will be returning as President/CEO.

‘Uncle Rush’ as he is popularly known in the Twitter world, quite ‘matter-of-factedly’ tweeted this just now, “Practice smiling in every pose, also fyi, I decided to return to Def Jam…now is the right time” Haha, We love Uncle Rush, only he makes H-U-G-E announcements like this, so casual and effortless…

Simmons started Def Jam a while back in 1994 and eventually sold it to Universal Records, in 1998. Def Jam was considered the home for top, original Hip Hop acts such as Run DMC and Public Enemy amongst others.

Global Grind sources report that Def Jam’s new President/CEO, Russell Simmons will be spearheading artists such as Kanye, Rihanna, Rick Ross and Ludacris amongst many others. Under Sir Simmons tutelage, Def Jam produced award winning albums for top artistes such as Jay Z, The Beastie Boy and LL Cool J to name a few.

With this move, it is as if Russell Simmons is merely returning home. No matter how long he was away from Def Jam, one would always associate the company with his name and face, happy to see him back….Simmons is always making positive, power moves and we are sure this will be no less, as he assured the public, ‘…now is the right time’ We can only imagine, what he has in mind!
