In his first sit down, on-camera interview, Russell Simmons opens up about the Harriet Tubman sex tape controversy on popular YouTube entertainment show BRKDWN.

BRKDWN is a daily look at what’s hot, current and trending in the world, running on YouTube’s KscopeNetwork.

Host Cynthia LuCiette sat down with Simmons for an interview about his new YouTube Channel All Def Digital (ADD) and the Harriet Tubman sex tape parody that caused an uproar this week.

So why did it air on ADD? Why Did Simmons pull the video? And what is next for his channel?

It is produced by Alchemy Networks, the premiere digital network for urban lifestyle and entertainment, and BMP Digital, the digital division of leading production company Bunim/Murray Productions, producers of such hit reality shows as “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “Project Runway.” In addition to YouTube, BRKDWN will air as a new original series on Bounce TV (, the nation’s fast-growing and only broadcast television network for African Americans, this fall.
