When he’s not spouting off against guns, tweeting insipid yoga/peace/love slogans, or hypocritically cheering Occupy capitalist-bashers, rap mogul Russell Simmons apparently loves to listen to R&B/rap star Drake.

This morning, he shared his praise for Drake’s most recent single, “Started From the Bottom,” and for his earlier opus, “Best I Ever Had,” which includes the following classy lyrics.

Sex, Love, Pain baby, I be on that Tank shit
Buzz so big, I could pro’lly sell a blank disc
When my album drop, bitches’ll buy it for the picture
And niggas will buy it too and claim they got it for they sister
Magazine paper girl, the money ain’t the issue
They bring dinner to my room and ask me to initial
She call me the referee, cause I be so official
My shirt ain’t got no stripes, but I can make your pussy whistle
Like the Andy Griffith theme song
…And who told you to put them jeans on?
Double cup love, you the one I lean on
Feeling for a fix then you should really get ya fiend on
Yeah, just know my condo is the crack spot
Every single show she out there repping like a mascot
Get it from the back and make your fuckin’ bra strap pop
All up in ya slot til the nigga hit the jackpot

Some womenfolk (and a few menfolk) weren’t down with the vulgarity and misogyny.

Such a champion of women, isn’t he? Flashbacks:
