Krush Groove

Loosely based on the life of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, this film tells the story of the early days of Def Jam Recordings and includes cameos from music legends LL Cool J and Run DMC. Depicting black pop culture at its best, Krush Groove follows the struggle --- and fun --- of creating a record-label empire built on a music genre that had been unheard of and doubted. Starring a young Blair Underwood in his feature-film debut, this cult classic examines the no-holds-barred approach to making something out of nothing, providing inspiration for today's job seekers or entrepreneurs.
