Russell Simmons on Justin Bieber:

“Justin is a very down-to-earth and gracious kid. He hangs out with Diggy a lot so he comes to my house. He’s very nice, same way he is, he’s great. He’s an example, an inspiration because a lot of kids can look at him because he is still grounded and he doesn’t seem to be affected in any way and it’s really up to you to be affected or not, he’s a gracious good kid.”

Russell Simmons is the founder of Def Jam Records (Island Def Jam is Justin’s record label), president of Phat Farm, and the uncle of Diggy Simmons (Russell and Reverend Run are brothers.)
