This Is How Russell Simmons Friendship With Donald Trump Benefitted Method Man

Donald Trump may be completely loathed by the hip-hop community now, but it wasn’t always like that.

Donald Trump has enjoyed a long association with hip-hop, whether we like it or not.

For instance, mogul Russell Simmons was with Donald Trump on his first date with his wife Melania.
“I remember him telling me how educated she was and what a good family she came from,” Russell Simmons said. “And then we all found out that even then when he told me all that, how many years ago, was not true. We found out she’s not educated, they had lied about her background and her family, her good family he referred to. I’m always surprised at what people will accept.”
Rapper Lil Jon was infamously “fired” as a guest on Season 11 of “The Apprentice,” and Snoop Dogg’s roasting of Donald Trump was nothing short of classic.

Plenty of rappers have named checked Donald Trump in their lyrics, but Method Man took it a step further.

Donald Trump was a guest on Meth’s studio album Tical 2000: Judgement Day.
While Method Man is no fan of the Donald Trump now, back then this was not the case.
Once again, Russell Simmons comes into the picture, connecting Mr. Donald Trump, to Method Man.
