I guess in 2009 Russell called Bill Cosby out for being judgmental of black people, particularly rappers. Russell was going to squash the beef at annual Jackie Robinson awards dinner, but your boy Bill Cosby wasn’t having it. According to Russell:
- I wanted to find him to apologize, to tell him I was sorry about my statements and to tell him that I loved him. Suddenly I turned and he was behind the curtain and I said “I love you” and he responded on some real hip-hop, “Get the f*ck out my face!His next move was straight up old school pre b-boy hood shit. He walked by me and bumped me with his shoulder as I walked off stage after presenting my award to Sean [...] I then loved him even more.
