Does Russell Simmons know what it’s like to have a “crazy” baby mama? Not quite.

Last month, Simmons posted a snapshot of himself with his two godchildren, who just so happen to be the youngest children of his ex-wife and mother of his own two kids, Kimora Lee Simmons.

The discussion about Russell’s involvement in his own baby mama’s life came up during an interview with the cast of All Def Digital’s new film Major Deal. What started off as a simple question turned into a bigger debate about “baby mamas.”

HipHollywood recently sat down with the film’s stars, Keraun Harris, aka King Keraun, Simone Shepherd and the man behind the comedy, Russell, to talk about the project, which focuses on an aspiring rapper’s goals to make it big before turning 30.

Why the timeline? The baby mama, played by Simone, is threatening to take their daughter away unless he (Harris) starts making money.

“Definitely, Tina’s character is crazy,” Shepherd admitted. “But I think that a lot of women, few women, will be able to really sympathize with what she’s going through. Maybe not how she handled some of the situations, but definitely be able to sympathize about why she’s so affected in moments.”

And according to Harris, he and Russell had a disagreement about how the movie was going to end, mainly because Russell doesn’t understand what it’s like to have a hype baby mama. “He’s had money for 80% of his lifetime, so because of that, he doesn’t know or see the 99% of the norm of us regular Black men with baby mamas,” Harris told us.

The actor added, “.01 % men that would be the godfather to the baby mama’s future children not with them, which is Russell Simmons.”

Major Deal is available now on VHX and iTunes September 15.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
