We thought Russell liked “milk in his coffee” SMH
Music mogul Russell Simmons wants New York’s governor to pull the plug on milk from cows:
The hip-hop impresario writes in a letter to Andrew Cuomo that milk should no longer be the state’s official beverage.The Def Jam founder recently wrote a letter to New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, explaining how milk made from rice, soy, and almonds is better for the body than cow milk. Though dairy farms bring in a lot of money for the state, the change in milk could push new businesses. The money made from a different kind of milk could replace any money New York has lost.
He tells The Associated Press he knows dairy is big business in New York but says other industries could spring up in its place.
Simmons and Cuomo go way back. They’re both from Queens, and they worked together a decade ago to help soften New York’s strict drug laws. But we don’t see Russell winning this one. Don’t cry over spilled milk Russy!
