Russell Simmonsby Brian Baughan
From the 1970s to today, hip-hop has gone from an underground movement to a global industry. One man, Russell Simmons, has overseen much of the music's growth. This promoter/record producer was there during hip-hop's earliest days. The record label he founded with Rick Rubin in 1984, Def Jam Recordings, helped to expose pioneering acts like Kurtis Blow, the Beastie Boys, and Run-D.M.C. to listeners everywhere and brought hip-hop music into the mainstream.
