Jermaine Dupri Biography
Jermaine Dupri is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, record executive, actor, DJ and television producer. He became popular in April 1992 when “Jump,” a song he wrote and produced for Kris Kross, topped the Billboard Hot 100. Within one year he achieved his first hit. He is the founder of So So Def Recordings, an Atlanta-based label that launched and developed Xscape, Da Brat, and Jagged Edge.
Besides platinum releases with those acts, he was soon behind number one pop hits for Usher and Monica, along with material for several other R&B and rap artists. By the end of the ’90s, Dupri had a platinum album of his own, Life in 1472 (1998), supported by a Top Ten R&B/hip-hop hit with Jay-Z, “Money Ain’t a Thang.”
Dupri released another album, Instructions (2001), and added to his stack of pop number ones with four more smashes headlined by Usher, a pair by Mariah Carey — including the Grammy-winning “We Belong Together” and one by Nelly. During 2010s he was more in the background, though his presence was always felt, given that So So Def had always provided support in securing Atlanta’s ever-strengthening power in the music industry. His legacy was further assured toward the end of the 2010s when he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Some of the popular musicians he has worked with and produced for includes Kris Kross, Mariah Carey, Usher, Jay-Z, Nelly, Monica, Migos, Da Brat, Xscape, Janet Jackson, TLC, Aretha Franklin, Ludacris, Alicia Keys, and Bow Wow.
