Report: Simmons, Cohen Plan Closed-Door Meeting
April 16, 2007 at 5:47 AM (PT)
RUSSELL SIMMONS and LYOR COHEN will be holding a "closed door" meeting with artists and executives from the Hip-Hop/Urban community for a discussion on the future of Hip-Hop.
Sources told ALLHIPHOP.COM that the invitation only meeting will take place on WEDNESDAY (4/18) at LYOR COHEN's MANHATTAN residence. The meeting comes shortly after the ousting of talk show host DON IMUS and the heightened criticism of Hip-Hop’s representation of women. IMUS was fired after making sexist and racist remarks about the RUTGERS UNIVERSITY basketball team.
