The Russell Simmons Music Group is in tight negotiations to find a distributor

to market his four Hip-Hop signings, but hinted that there would be a very good

chance that he will be working with the same people he presented the exact opportunity

to eight years ago.

“There are

still other people bidding, but it feels very strong that I’ll be back

working at Def Jam,” Simmons told Eurweb. “I wanna work for Jay-Z

(President of the Island Def Jam Music Group). I love the whole family. I have

Def Jam Electronics, I have Def Jam video games, I have Def Jam Mobile, we have

Def Jam clothing. So even though other labels have good offers and they’re

very excited, some of the stuff that we’re doing [with the Russell Simmons

Music Group] is locked in Def Jam. We’re gonna announce it when we get

everything right.”
