NEW YORK (AP) - Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons - " recording and broadcast industries should consistently ban three racial and sexist words - "bitch," "ho" and "nigger" should be considered "extreme curse words."

Last week, Simmons called a private meeting of influential music industry executives to discuss the issue. However, no music executives were associated with Monday's announcement by Simmons' Hip-Hop Summit Action Network.

Calls to Sony Music, Universal Music Group and Atlantic Records were not returned. The Recording Industry Association of America and Warner Music Group declined to comment.
