Marksmen Rich Medina is a Master of The Mix
Rich Medina is a fixture in the Philadelphia nightlife scene, but holds residencies at prominent venues across the country, including the infamous Little Ricky’s Rib Shack parties at APT and Wednesday nights La Poisson Rouge in NYC. Basically, if you mention Jump N' Funk music anywhere on the East Coast (and beyond), you’re mentioning Rich Medina. Amidst his hectic DJ schedule, Rich has sparked a passion for production and remixes as a member of The Marksmen Guerrilla Production Network. Look out for the upcoming AfroStreet collaborations with brother Mark including a Remix of Fela's "Zombie" performed by the cast of the Broadway musical, the Michael Jackson vs. Fela Kuti Mashup Project at MJEFLA.com, and Brit new comer, Rox.
Russell Runs with The Marksmen
Behind every good man is a great woman, but behind every American mogul stands several great women. PictureThisTV and Oxygen Networks present Running Russell Simmons featuring music produced by The Marksmen Guerrilla Production Network.
The upcoming docu-series "Running Russell Simmons" offers an exclusive peek at the life of Russell Simmons -- entrepreneur, entertainment and fashion icon, philanthropist, and yogi --and the powerful team that helps to keep the machine running. Simmons' assistants not only know the ins and outs of his business deals, but also have a hand in managing his family life and party planning: a 24/7 commitment.
Simone and Christina serve as Simmons' closest confidantes, fierce gatekeepers, philanthropic czars, business liaisons, and more. The series will also feature Adair, Trish, and Piper, who keep operations running seamlessly. Ali and Sagen are Simone and Christina's new interns who struggle to maintain the hectic pace that running Russell Simmons demands.
