Super Rich Talk by The Godfather of Hip Hop
Hosted by Davey D

“Russell Simmons - The Godfather of Hip Hop - “defines true affluence as a higher state of consciousness. Read this book and tap into the infinite supply of abundance in your own being. “ – Deepak Chopra

Along with describing practical tools and ideas to attain greatness, the cofounder of Def Jam Records, a master entrepreneur and visionary, discusses the success stories of 50 Cent, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Microsoft genius Paul Allen and many others. Simmons knows success inside and out. As he vividly recounts, he moved from being a drug dealer to bringing Hip-Hop to every facet of business and media, not only as Def Jam cofounder, but through his clothing lines (Phat Farm, Baby Phat, and Run Athletics) and through Argyleculte; MTV’s Run’s House, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, and Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry Jam on Broadway; the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network promoting empowerment in young people; plus other ventures in the financial services industry, mobile communications, and philanthropy, and finally through his deep involvement with yoga and meditation.

“…this is finding a way to get past the accepted definition of “rich,” which is money and material toys, and accepting that true happiness and success comes from living in a state of consciousness where you’re connected to the spiritual richness inside of you. When you’re able to sustain that connection, that’s when you’re Super Rich.” — Russell Simmons
