With a list of celebrities that endorse Barack Obama, it seems Hip Hop Mogual Russell Simmons has joined the bandwagon. Simmons says he’s inspired by the diversity among the Illinois senator’s supporters. He says Obama has built an unprecedented national movement of people from all ethnic, racial, political, social and economic backgrounds.
Russell has always been a staunch advocator of the young people vote. I think with Barack capturing a lot of that age group has helped sway his decision as well.
