This sounds familiar doesn't it? Every week, a new biopic rumor surfaces. We've got Tha Dogg Pound going forward with theirs and a Tupac film about to begin shooting. How about one on Hip Hop's most important record label, Def Jam?

Deadline is reporting that Universal is eyeing to make it happen with Michael B. Jordan as Russell Simmons and Jonah Hill as Rick Rubin. The film would cover a lot of the early years as well as Def Jam's rise in popularity.

Could you see Michael and Jonah playing the roles of Russell and Rick?
