All Def Digital, a new destination for cutting-edge urban music, comedy and spoken word programming helmed by industry icon Russell Simmons launched YouTube.com/AllDefDigital.
There was a bit of a hiccup with some "in poor taste" content last week, but an apology was issued and we won't drudge it up.
New series include Odd World: MellowHigh, a music documentary series following hip-hop trio MellowHigh (Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Left Brain), as they record their new EP and gallivant across Europe on tour.
Then there is Dr. Reasons stars YouTube comedy sensation Spoken Reason as Dr. Reasons counseling quirky troubled couples through relationship hurdles.
B-Rock is an animated series that blows the roof off of the White House and exposes the twisted behind-the-scenes shenanigans of the 44thPresident of the United States of America, Barack Obama, as he and his Commando in Chief alter ego, B-Rock encounter an endless array of familiar characters.
"I've worked my entire professional life to promote up-and-coming talent and the new art forms they create and YouTube is the perfect platform for this new generation," said Simmons. "Just as our talent will benefit from being able to engage directly with their fans, YouTube will benefit from having a network that reflects the incredible diversity of the new America."
