Russell Simmons Hits SoHo: Maybach Owner, Obama Supporter

Illustration for article titled Russell Simmons Hits SoHo: Maybach Owner, Obama Supporter

One of our New York City tipsters and regular friend of the site, was minding his own business, strolling down Broadway, when he came across a rather imposing Maybach surrounded by rather imposing bodyguards. Our hero was eventually shooed away by one particularly massive fellow, but not before he confirmed it was the carriage of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons. Elbowing his way back in momentarily, he managed to take a photo of the rear — seems Mr. Simmons isn't afraid to declare his love of Obama by way of bumper sticker. Is that even legal on a Maybach?

@BreakMyWindow: That's him. Dude used to be like 200 lbs, and as you can see is only about 4 foot 2. The vanity plate on his car is "YRUFAT".

Yeah, I know a little too much about Richard Simmons.
