(AllHipHop Rumors) Hip Hop mogul and super producer Jermaine Dupri recently stopped by the Breakfast Club set. There he spoke on many different topics from his relationship with Janet Jackson to his friendship with Usher.
JD spoke for almost an hour to Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy. Where they shared plenty of laughs as they discussed Dupri’s superstar life.
Two topics and particular have caught the eyes of fans following the interview. One was when Jermaine Dupri said that he has contributed more to the culture of Atlanta than OutKast.
Before you jump out your seats, JD was asked who he thinks has contributed more to Atlanta. The choices were OutKast or himself.
Jermaine Dupri said if they were speaking about culture than it would have to be himself, but if they were speaking about music than it would be OutKast. Reason being because since the beginning of his entertainment ascension nobody treated him like he was from Atlanta.
He talked about Kris Kross selling 7 million records of “Jump” before OutKast blew up and nobody credits that to Atlanta. He also spoke about performing with Da Brat at the infamous Source Awards where Andre 3000 voiced the famous “The south got something to say” line.
He simply stated that when OutKast touched the stage that night they felt like they were from somewhere else, but nobody felt that way when he and Da Brat were on stage.
The other topic people are discussing is JD saying Bow Wow has more #1 records than Drake. Which is not factual, but people find it to be fictitious anyway due to Bow Wow’s recent actions.
Drake has more #1’s across different charts than Bow Wow when the number is actually fact checked. JD more than likely has never checked the actual singles and was just defending his protege.
Drake’s number of #1 singles is quite astounding for the performer to just be beginning his ascent into his prime. Bow Wow had a nice run, but not quite Drake level.
Do you think Drake or Bow Wow had the better run at Hip Hop’s top spot?
