Today, October 4th, we wish a Happy 47th Bithday to Jay-Z mentor and ol’ school rapper, Jaz-O, whom Hov named himself after. We also wish a Happy 54th Birthday to hip-hop businessman and entrepreneur, Russell Simmons, who co-founded Def Jam Recordings, is worth $340 mill. and is the older brother of Rev. Run. Today also marks the day 5 years ago the show detailing rapper and hip-hop feuds, “Beef: The Series”, debuted on BET. The show only was produced by Quincy Jones and lasted a little over 1 year but has given us inside information on so many rappers’ conflicts.
