    Russell Simmons Pulls Out Of Source Event, Mag Owners Comment

    The Source and Russell Simmons continue to feud. The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network recently pulled out of an event scheduled to take place over the weekend before The Source Awards.

    Simmons and The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) pulled out of speaking duties at Saturday’s (October 9th) "Join the SIPHA: Hip-Hop Voter Education Rally."

    "Russell Simmons has been exploiting Hip-Hop for years,” The Source’s Dave Mays and Ray Benzino said in a statement. “We invited, and expected him to participate in the largest annual Hip-Hop weekend of the year, and he bailed from the event because he is afraid of the authenticity and influence of The Source Magazine, and our weekend.

    “Russell is further from Hip-Hop, the community and struggle it represents than he has ever been. Russell is a serious threat to the advancement of the black community, and Hip-Hop culture because he exploits the perception in corporate America that he represents the views of the Hip-Hop community when he does not."

    Mays and Benzino said Simmons’ call for unity with Eminem after the magazine produced a tape of the rapper using racial slurs against black women, downplayed the seriousness of the issue.

    "The true cause of disunity in Hip-Hop is the lack of open dialogue regarding the state of the Hip-Hop music industry, and the role of corporate interests in the destruction of black owned companies and black artists. We invite Russell, Jimmy Iovine, Eminem and Paul
    Rosenberg to a debate to discuss the future of Hip-Hop and those things that divide us. The Hip-Hop Summit, and Russell Simmons may represent the Hamptons and his rich friends, but they don't represent the Hip-Hop Community.”

    Thousands are expected to attend the rally, which takes place at the Miami Arena on October 9th. Minister Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Ja Rule, Ludacris, Fat Joe and other are expected to speak.

    Simmons reply to The Source’s comments and allegations were simple: “God bless them,” the mogul told AllHipHop.com
    Even when I was underage,
    Mom was tellin' cops I was tryin' to run away,
    I told her "Someday bitch you're gonna pay,"

    The only reason they are saying that is because they know they won't do it(mostly Eminem). Because Eminem would look out of place, and they would probably make him look stupid. There is no reason for Eminem to do it. I bet you the source hasn't even tried to reach them(in private/without the cameras). Cause it is all just a publicity stunt.
    With my voice I will vent
    Standing here, hoping that this will be energy well spent
    So no matter how absurd these words get, listen closely
    As this could be the last word I spit

      Jesus Christ The source is a complete waste of newsstand space.


      “We invited, and expected him to participate in the largest annual Hip-Hop weekend of the year, and he bailed from the event because he is afraid of the authenticity and influence of The Source Magazine, and our weekend.


      The authenticity? What authenticity. Benzino ruined that magazine and now "Rays got AKs at Dave May's Head"
      Looks like Em hit the nail on the head with that line
