While browsing through some business sites on the internet, I came across this conversation with Russell Simmons about his business ventures, achieving success in pretty much everything he puts his mind to, and how to make people pay attention to what you're doing. This is focused on business in general, but since it all started with hip hop, I thought I'd throw up a link to it (couldn't find an option to embed). I went and listened to Russell speak once up at UC. He's a really inspiring person. I'm glad I went.
