Simmons Proud Of Hip-hop Youth

Rap mogul RUSSELL SIMMONS has praised the hip-hop community for helping to elect BARACK OBAMA the 44th President of the U.S.
The Def Jam founder-turned-style guru has released a post-election statement, in which he celebrates and congratulates the "vision of the hip-hop generation and its young people".
Simmons insists the genre's youth helped older Americans, like himself, realise their dream of putting Senator Obama in the White House.
The statement reads, "The election of Barack Obama, a resounding progressive voice, is a clear reflection of hip-hop politics.
"Obama's election as president is a beautiful testament to the American collective consciousness that is flowering. This more loving consciousness will be necessary to protect us from some of our hurtful human choices and tendencies.
"We will need it to create balance with the constantly emerging advances in technology, so, going forward, we can use these advances in a positive way to lift up Mother Earth and all her inhabitants.
"I don't think I'm overstating it when I say that today, I feel like America has dodged a bullet. Let's support this beautiful leader to do the work necessary to promote and execute on the change agenda we all voted for."
