Russell Simmons & GlobalGrind.com Host “Salute To Grammy Award Nominees” Night’s Hottest Party Shuts Down Beverly Hills

With a 2-mile check point that extended from Tower Road to Sunset, the sheer number of celebrities and guests that descended upon Russell Simmons’ and GlobalGrind.com’s “Salute To Grammy Award Nominees” party last night took the local police by surprise. The secret address to the event was somehow leaked 3-hours prior and caused a frenzy as a mass of cars, confused police, and tons of celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Mila Jovovich, Paris Hilton, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Lil Jon and others braved the rain but never gained access. Those lucky enough to be inside such as Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, Slash formerly of Guns N Roses, Kim Kardashian + Reggie Bush and Taraji P. Henson partied with Simmons and executives from his buzzing online hip-hop destination, GlobalGrind.com.

Simmons presented T.I. with an award acknowledging his outstanding community service.

Music icons Quincy Jones and Whitney Houston held court upstairs as revelers partied to the music of DJ D-Nice into the wee hours of the morning.

The exclusive magazine sponsor for the event was US Weekly.

Net proceeds from the event go to the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network.

A complete list of those that showed:


Official Statement From The CEO’s Of Cash Money Records

Cash Money Records CEOs Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Baby” Williams issued a statement soon after Lil Wayne received four Grammys. “The Cash Money family is thrilled with Lil Wayne’s triumph at the Grammys. We are an independent label and this recognition is validation of all of our hard work over the last 20 years. To go from selling records out of our cars more than a decade ago to having the number one selling and Grammy winning artist, it is really hard to express how much pride we feel at this moment.”
