A Russell Simmons biopic on the way…

According to reports, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is moving from upper-middle-class life to multi-million-dollar mogulhood, with Deadline reporting that Barris will soon be working on the script for a biopic about Def Jam founder Russell Simmons. Adapted from Simmons’ memoir, Life And Def: Sex Drugs Money + God will chronicle his rise from a childhood in Queens, up through his immersion in the nascent hip-hop scene, and eventual emergence as a label founder, film producer, fashion designer, and activist.
