Russell Simmons has one loyal friend in Foxy Brown.
The founder of Def Jam records has been accused by many women of sexual misconduct in the past two months. While he is currently meditating and reflecting in Bali, one of his former artists has decided to speak out in support of Simmons.
Foxy Brown posted an open letter in which she spoke of the mogul as a “respectful, respected gentleman” and sending her love.
Following the success of verses on Jay-Z’s “Ain’t No N****” and Case’s “Touch Me, Tease Me” Brown signed to Def Jam Records in 1996.
See her open letter below.
An open letter………. Attesting to the character of the man who, as a teenager saved my life. Salaciousness and scandal garners headlines. Cowards cower, during times of tumult. But as inarguably, Russell’s biggest Def Jam female protege, (who birthed an era of overtly evocative stars), the man I’ve known and loved, was nothing more than the respectful, respected, gentleman and GODFATHER OF HIP-HOP we’ve all adored. In staunch support, Praying for you Russ! Let’s send our LOVE. Fox @unclerush
