Foxy Brown Pens Open Letter To Russell Simmons: "The Respectful, Respected, Gentleman & Godfather Of


New York rapper Foxy Brown is pulling for her longtime mentor. The Ill Na Na has hit up social media to share strong words in support of Russell Simmons amid mounted sexual assault accusations.

Foxy went to Instagram this weekend with some must-read words about Simmons mentoring her during a long Def Jam run.

An open letter..........💋 Attesting to the character of the man who, as a teenager saved my life. Salaciousness and scandal garners headlines. Cowards cower, during times of tumult. But as inarguably, Russell’s biggest Def Jam female protege, (who birthed an era of overtly evocative stars), the man I’ve known and loved, was nothing more than the respectful, respected, gentleman and GODFATHER OF HIP-HOP we’ve all adored. In staunch support, Praying for you Russ!💋 Let’s send our LOVE. ❤️Fox @unclerush

A few days ago, Russell announced his current state of mind amid multiple sexual assault accusations.

I’m in Bali writing, meditating at holy sites and practicing asanas. Letting everyone speak, while I listen. Focusing and praying to realize one goal, BEING A MORE USEFUL SERVANT OF GOD. I want to fully devote myself to my daughters, the underserved communities I've always worked with and the growth of a new conscious community. We need a revolution of consciousness. Now is the time for new beginnings. One awakened being at​ time.
