RUSH Communications: Empowerment

Russel Simmons

"Everything my companies have done is based in hip-hop culture, whether it is Def Jam, Phat Farm, or Def Comedy Jam. It is done with attention to the subtlety of marketing hip-hop on a global scale. I think it's something we're very good at. My whole career has been about cultivating, understanding and expanding this core audience for hip-hop culture and then watching the impact ripple out to the mainstream." -- Russell Simmons
