Russell Simmons appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last night, but the two didn't talk so much about Occupy Wall Street! Instead, the conversation turned into Uncle Rush defending his comments that Hannity was “more gangsta” than Snoop Dogg.
Hannity jumped off the interview by asking Uncle Rush if he ever feels bad about being rich, to which Simmons responded:
“I worked hard to get where I am. I don’t feel bad about earning or about a system that allowed me to earn.”
Uncle Rush served as an unofficial mayor at Zuccotti Park where the Occupy Movement began and has been a constant proponent of the protesters.
At the end of the one-on-one, Hannity told Simmons that the two had some unfinished business when it came to comments he made, claiming Hannity was more gangsta than Snoop Dogg.
Earlier this year when Fox News was up in arms at the idea of Common performing at a White House poetry jam, Simmons argued that someone like Snoop Dogg was “less racist, less sexist, less homophobic, and less gangsta” than Hannity, about which Hannity had only one question: “more gangsta?!”
By the end of the interview the two squashed their riff and thanked each other.
Watch how it all went down!
