Life and Def: Sex, Drugs, Money, and God
by Russell Simmons with Nelson George
Russell Simmons, born and bred on the streets of Queens, New York, is one of today's most influential figures in American business and culture. Before most of America had even heard of it, Simmons saw in hip-hop the seeds of a global force that would change the way people talk, dress and live - and he took that vision and turned it into a cultural revolution. Life and Def is more than the story of Simmons' rise - it's a blueprint for creating an industry and changing the world.
