After several starts and stops, Russell Simmons-backed hip-hop network
Fabulous TV has been officially silenced.

Sources said Simmons, founder of Def Jam Records, won’t go on with plans to
launch the service, and instead will devote his time to other entrepreneurial
efforts.

According to sources, former cable executives and Fabulous TV partners Tracy
Lawrence and Peter Griffith will look to create another hip-hop-oriented cable
network, and they have already reached partnerships with several record
labels.
