Russell Simmons

We travel to Indonesia to sit down with Russell Simmons, co-founder of Def Jam Records, at his home in Bali. The music mogul reminisces on his career, highlighting his decision to drop out of college, the experience of working alongside Rick Rubin, and how Def Comedy Jam bolstered the Def Jam brand. Plus, Simmons breaks his silence on sexual assault allegations made against him, acknowledging past insensitivity but denying ever partaking in violent or non-consenting behaviors. Simmons goes on to address Oprah’s departure from the film On the Record, detail his current legal dispute with his ex-wife, and explain how his move to Bali has given him ‘a new lease on life.’
