Def Jam RECORDS founder Russell Simmons is fed up with all the meek-mannered people in the music business.

American Simmons, who launched names including Method Man and Jay-Z on the world, says there is too much apathy in the industry.

He defends his outspoken nature and rants, "Everybody else is punished for saying things, but what's the worst thing they can do to me? Dissent built this country. I criticise adults and they get mad at me. I'm an adult and I still think adults are messed up in a lot of ways. Adults many times lack courage. They have old ideas and a lack of vision."
