BDR Is Salty About Jay-Z’s AEG Casino Partnership, Meanwhile He’s Plotting A New Comedy Series

- By Bossip Staff

Russell Simmons, who made history with his groundbreaking HBO comedy series Def Comedy Jam, is planning on making people laugh once again with a new comedy series.

The untitled series reunites the partnership of Simmons and Def Jam producer Stan Lathan and also serves as a platform for undiscovered comedians to get their shine.

“Def Comedy Jam made a significant contribution to American pop culture by introducing so many superstars,” Simmons noted. “Now with Comedy Central as our new partner, we’re poised to present the next generation of star talent.”

The series which is scheduled to air on Comedy Central this summer will be hosted by JB Smoove, of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame and DJ Cassidy will provide music.

Although Russell plans to make people laugh with his new project, some people are upset about the statement that he made yesterday (February 24) in regards to the scandal that surrounds Jay-Z and New York Governor Paterson.

According to an interview with the New York Post, Russell Simmons says that “the deal wasn’t the best deal for the people.”

Simmons said the firm he advises — Penn National Gaming — and not AEG, should have won the contract to operate 4,500 video-lottery terminals at the faded horse racing facility.

    Russell don’t want no Nubian women or any women for that matter. He wants a nice a@@holle to climb up in. He is gayer than Peter Pan on ice skates. And no, he don’t like Black people. Our people should definately stop buying his shyt. You know white people aint buyint that garbage.
