Ne-Yo reports from behind the scenes of the Rick Ross “Super High” video shoot. Hopefully we will be hearing much more from this man later this year.
I’m taking you guys on the European leg of the tour with me…see what I see….
Here is a brand new joint by up and coming singer/songwriter Brandon Hines. It is titled, “I’m In Love,” produced by Jermaine Dupri, and features some additional adlibs by JD as well. Brandon has been working with the whole Living The Life crew for some time now. This is a nice first taste of what they have been cooking up. Check it!

Here is a surprise. Case just dropped this record on iTunes today, out of nowhere. I thought he was still promoting The Rose Experience, but this is a brand new record. It is titled, “Old Fashioned Lovin,” and it is a good joint. New album in the works?? Check it out, and you will have to stay tuned!
Jermaine Dupri is a quote monster. Never one to mince words, the veteran music producer and label mogul has had his ups and downs during his 20-year career. But the brazen Dupri, who has fostered the careers of Kriss Kross, Xscape and Da Brat and accumulated studio time with such superstar acts as Jay-Z, Usher and Mariah Carey, is a survivor. With his longtime imprint So So Def now independent and a buzz-heavy protégé Dondria making noise, we caught up with the man known as JD to discuss his thoughts on VIBE’s Greatest Hip Hop Producer of All-Time; his beef with Usher; his ex-girlfriend Janet Jackson; why he deserves more praise than the Neptunes and his outspoken views on major labels. This is Jermaine Dupri, unfiltered.
VIBE: How surprised were you when you beat out Irv Gotti in VIBE’s Greatest Hip Hop Producers of All-Time?
Jermaine Dupri: In the beginning, I didn’t pay much attention to it. I go into all this stuff thinking that niggas don’t fuck with me [laughs]. So I went into the contest like, “Ain’t nobody paying no attention to me.” You have some people who say that I helped contribute to Jay-Z’s national success when I produced “Money Ain’t A Thing.” But I have been fortunate enough to make [history-making] records such as the Da Brat being the first solo female rapper to go platinum as well being the first person Jay-Z actually made a record with from the South. People in the South say it was the beginning of them actually knowing who Jay-Z was. It’s not like I just make beats. I make movements. I can even go back to Kriss Kross as being the first kid hip-hop group that we will remember. And 10 years later, I did it again with Bow Wow. Then I ushered in the snap music era with the Dem Franchise Boyz. Things changed when you heard these records.
