In hip-hop, there have always been talks of rumored people gathering together as the Illuminati. TMZ caught up with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons to see if he is part of a secret society.

Simmons, who is known to be friends with Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West and Oprah, denies that such a group exists. He protested, “Are you kidding me? I’m a grown f**king man!”
