Music mogul Russell Simmons's elder brother DANNY is launching his own record label - with a focus on black rock music.

According to PAGE SIX.com, UNDERGROUND BLACK ROCK will unleash a host of talented groups on the unsuspecting public, starting with Danny's first signed act SHRINE FOR BLACK MADONNA.

Insiders are already warning aspiring hip hop acts to avoid the label, as Danny has no plans to rival his mega-rich brother's Def Jam label.
