Rap mogul Russell Simmons is planning a comeback to the media and fashion businesses. He was forced to step down as chairman of Rush Communications after 18 women came forward and accused the Def Jam co-founder of rape and other inappropriate behavior.
Simmons plans to explain himself in a brand new book as he was in a rape scandal that tore apart his image as a positive model who was the pioneer of hip hop labels.
The Def Jam co-founder still denies any wrongdoing and he claims every lawsuit against him has been settled or dismissed. Simmons has never been charged of any crimes before and is currently in New York.
There are some who have accepted his return from Bali to his home city, but not everyone has given him the green light to go where he pleases. He was kicked out of Yoga studio, after some customers complained about his presence.
Russell Simmons wants to clear the air with his book, “Confessions of A Hip Hop Yogi”. He expresses that “It’s about my advice for young men and the positivity that has come out of #MeToo and #TimesUp movement,” of one revealing chapter titled “The Awakening.”
There is no release date and Simmons said the book will be released in China and then everywhere else afterwards.
