Russell Simmons thinks Geraldo Rivera needs to shut up when it comes to talking about how hip-hop affects the Black community.

Geraldo called Russell by name this week when he dropped by Huffington Post Live, where he argued that hip-hop has been more detrimental to Black people than racism. Most of us are still rolling our eyes over the ignorance of his statement, but Russell had some choice words for the FOX News host.

The Def Jam mogul isn’t terribly bothered about the opinion that hip-hop has alienated Black people from mainstream jobs and career success, considering the source. Russell put all of his zen on the shelf to tell TMZ that Geraldo “hasn’t done sh*t to help people.”

Besides, Russell believes that Geraldo is just trying to stretch out his shine from “The Celebrity Apprentice.” He explained, “After losing, he needs to just talk to get himself relevant.”

Who knew Russell could throw shade like that?!
