“An unbelievably fascinating and provocative account that I found hard to put down. Life and Def is Russell’s
Art of the Deal.” —Donald Trump

“In Life and Def, hip-hop’s mega-mogul gives the raw, uncut story behind his rise to the top.” —Honey

“Simmons’s love for hip-hop in general, and rap in particular, can’t be mistaken. This book is insightful. . . . Anybody who cares about rap should read this.” —Black Issues Book Review
