Excellent!!
14 June 2003 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Everyone who has HBO should be exposed to this gem of a series. Presented by the man who brought you the Def Comedy Jam, Russell Simmons, brings you Def Comedy Jam. A series which exemplifies Americas problems as well as diversity. This show will truly open your eyes through a plethora of lyrical tongue twists and non-commercialized rap. You've got to see it to believe it!
