beef , conflict, and drama between Hip Hop Mogul Russell Simmons and legendary comedian Bill Cosby! The controversy heated back up this weekend at the Jackie Robinson Annual Awards dinner. Back in 2009, the two began a feud when Simmons gave his opinion of Cosby’s “State of Emergency” project. Back then, Russ openly expressed that he felt as though Bill Cosby was too judgmental of black folks, especially rappers. According to Russell’s recent blog on Global Grind, when he spotted Bill at the dinner this past weekend, he wanted to apologize but things didn’t go as planned.
I wanted to find him to apologize, to tell him I was sorry about my statements and to tell him that I loved him. Suddenly I turned and he was behind the curtain and I said “I love you” and he responded on some real hip-hop, “Get the f*ck out my face!
His next move was straight up old school pre b-boy hood shit. He walked by me and bumped me with his shoulder as I walked off stage after presenting my award to Sean [...] I then loved him even more.
Maddnesslive Factor: Rumors have it that Uncle Russ and Bill Cosby will be in Vegas for a fight! A fight with their wallets! LOL
