Russell Simmons has taken over as editor-in-chief of the site, which serves as a social media platform developed by and for the hip hop community.
Simmons has been blogging on the site since its early days, and his blogs got such a strong response that the site launched an entire ‘Celebrity Blogger’ section.
Other celebrities who will blog for globalgrind.com include Bow Wow, Damon Dash, Jim Jones, Nelly, T-Pain and former Destiny’s Child member LeToya Luckett.
Blogging about his new position, Simmons writes: ‘President Barack H. Obama in his Inaugural Address affirmed, ‘We are in a new era of responsibility.’ And as we take back the
responsibility to fight poverty, ignorance and intolerance, we can and will make a difference.’
