Russell Simmons On ‘Juan Epstein’


A Rush Conversation.

Russell Simmons was up at 395 Hudson St recently to promote his new book. Aside from the project, he talked about Def Jam’s thirty year anniversary. Synopsis below.

You think you know what you’re getting here? You’re wrong. The pure history of Def Jam and basically the history of hip hop from Russell himself. We only make it til about 1985 but part 2 is a coming! I cannot believe I didn’t even know what Def Jam really meant. Wow…
