|YouTube diversifies with Shaq, Russell Simmons|
(From The Los Angeles Times) Russell Simmons has made a career -- and a fortune -- programming to audiences that the mainstream media has ignored.
The hip-hop impresario co-founded the Def Jam label, launched the Phat Farm clothing line, started a film and television production company and branched out into stage productions with “Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam on Broadway.”
