Russell Simmons Co-Signs Irv Gotti for Def Jam Prez

We don’t know if Def Jam is actually taking Irv Gotti into consideration for president but since he went on MTV and spoke to Sway and lobbied for the spot, there’s been some mumblings about Irv and the position itself.

No I.D had to address the situation on radio and now Russell Simmons weighs in on who thinks is a fit for the job in a convo with XXL.

“I like IrvI like [DJ] Khaled. I’d co-sign Chris Lighty. These three people, I’d co-sign any of them in a second…”

Irv and Chris make perfect sense to most of us. DJ Khaled on the other hand, is a stretch in my opinion. Not that my opinion matters but “The House That Russell Built” needs a little more experience than a few “We The Best” outbursts in an A&R meeting to get the sales back up.

I could be wrong though. Who do you think should be Def Jam’s next presidente?
