Just a few minutes ago,  Global Grind has reported that Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons will be returning to head Def Jam Recordings, the label he co-founded with Rick Rubin back in 1984. Below is how Global Grind is reporting the story:

Earlier this week, Russell Simmons made a deal with Def Jam Recordings to return to the label as the President/CEO after the departure of LA Reid.  Russell began Def Jam in 1984 with Rick Rubin and went on to release classic albums from Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Jay-Z and many more.  He sold Def Jam to Universal in 1999, and since has not been involved in the day-to-day operations.

In his new role as President/CEO, Russell will oversee the entire roster of Def Jam artists including: Kanye West, Rihanna, Rick Ross, Ludacris, Big K.R.I.T, Young Yeezy and many others.

(Update) According to Russell Simmons/Global Grind, This was just an April Fool’s joke. Lol.
