- Pefer to keep them seperate, as they are seperate labels you know and every label deserves an article with Wikipedia whether they've merged or not. --Taylor Karras (talk) 21:42, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Def Jux fiasco
The article says Def Jam was created by Rick Ruben and that Russell Simmons joined him shortly thereafter. But, the info box says the company was founded by Russell Simmons. It can't be both.
Also, the article says that the first single released with a Def Jam Recordings logo was T La Rock & Jazzy Jay's "It's Yours." However, the article for Rick Ruben's band, Hose, says their 12-inch EP was the first recording released with the Def Jam logo. Again, it can't be both.

Please fix the end of the page in Def Jam Recordings as it is a huge mess after the current artists section and needs editing.
The current link in the founders section for "James Mansfield" links to a british attorney that died in 1821. A cursory google search for this name in association with Def Jam's founding comes up empty? Is this a mistake?
