Forbes Magazine recently named him one of "Hollywood's Most Influential Celebrities." USA Today chose him as one of the "Top 25 Most Influential People of the Past 25 Years." Hailed as a "hip-hop pioneer" for his groundbreaking vision, Russell Simmons is a cultural vanguard that has impacted music, television, film, fashion, finance, jewelry and philanthropy for nearly three decades. From his seminal Def Jam Recordings in 1984 to the 2007 publishing of his New York Times bestseller Do You! 12 Laws to Access the Power in You to Achieve Happiness and Success and his latest New York Times bestseller SUPER RICH: A Guide To Having It All, Simmons is globally renowned for his exceptional savvy, acumen and entrepreneurial approach to both business and philanthropy.

Giving back is of primary importance to Simmons, and as Chairman and CEO of Rush Communications, he has consistently leveraged his wide-ranging influence and commercial interests to help those less fortunate. A devoted yogi, Simmons also leads the non-profit division of his empire, Rush Community Affairs, and its ongoing commitment to empowering at-risk youth through education, the arts, social engagement, and promoting racial harmony and strengthening inter-group relations. In addition, Simmons serves as UN Goodwill Ambassador for The Permanent Memorial to Honor the Victims of Slavery and The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
