Neither One

 
Whenever I see Jermaine Dupri, I can't help but remember something I heard an old player once say. "A sucker is still a sucker even when he has the bag". When everybody you deal with walks away with as much or more than you.  That indicates there is a problem. Either you're a spendthrift with money or the people around you are using you. It could be a little of both. But I think in Jermaine Dupri's case it's mostly the latter. All his former main squeezes have more money these days than him. But they have no sense of allegiance to him.

The first woman he invested in turned out to be an open homosexual and a convict to boot. Da Brat could actually rap and she was cute. She could have been a big hit in Atlanta even until now. But she should have kept people guessing about what she liked. She came out before it was cool.  Plus I think people wanted to see her feminine side. Where was her older sister Lisa Raye's influence then?  Even though she is the picture of a goldigger. That would have been a better look. Since Da Brat was never known to be Jermaine's girlfriend.  That really didn't count against him. It also didn't help his image either. He was known for making it rain in the strip clubs. What's the odds of hanging out with a woman whose tab was as big as his?

That was the direction of things to come. The group "Xscape" broke up over the favoritism Jermaine Dupri was showing Kandi Burrus. The two were dating at the time. Though she seems to be generous to a fault with everybody else.  That doesn't seem to extend to Jermaine Dupri though. I don't know what happened between them. But it's still festering twenty years later.  She claims her issues are with members of the group. There were only four of them and two of those are sisters. Her and Tiny are the best of friends. So who is she talking about? With the juice her and Tiny have in Atlanta they could do something to help J.D out. How can they not show up for the SoSo Def reunion? It's their music alma mater. Most people would want to go and show off their success. There is something they don't want the people to know I bet.

For the last eight years Jermaine Dupri has had one of the most high profile girlfriends on the planet. Him and Janet Jackson have been an item. Not only did she get engaged shortly after they split. The only mans' career she has helped lately is Justin Timberlake. He got bigger while Jermaine was going broke. While her and Jermaine were together, they only spent his money. You never heard of Janet buying Jermaine anything. Look at Jay Z, T.I. and Wiz Khalifa. They all used their lady's popularity to their advantage. We've seen Beyonce every way but naked. But the only man's hand we ever seen on her was Jay. Nobody wants to see Tiny naked, but apparently many already have. T.I. wants to keep it quiet. So he created a show of his own. Wiz Khalifa made a come up with Amber  Rose . He beat out big money Kanye West.  All of them are a player a boss or both.  It seems Jermaine Dupri is neither one.

Jermaine Dupri is prepping for his 20th anniversary all-star concert and it seems that just about all of the old SoSo Def gang is ready, willing and able to participate in the festivities.

Dupri made a grand announcement about the upcoming show, which is scheduled for February 23rd in Atlanta, as he stood beside Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed on the steps of Atlanta’s City Hall.


Former and current SoSoDef artists, friends and supporters all took part in the press conference, but many were left speculating about Xscape, the girl group that once featured Kandi Burruss, sisiters LaTocha & Tameka Scott, and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle?

Bow Wow aka ‘Mr. 106 & Park’ left SoSoDef for the greener pastures of Lil Wayne‘s Young Money Records, but he still plans to participate in Jermaine’s anniversary celebration.

And although he’s actually had his own share of issues with Jermaine, that didn’t stop Bow Wow from trying to call out Kandi regarding her decision NOT to reunite with her former group members for the SoSoDef Anniversary concert.

Jermaine recently commented about Bow Wow’s lil rant.

Details below…

Jermaine was asked about Bow Wow’s rant by Sister 2 Sister, and he responded:


I don’t feel anything at all [about those comments]. I’m not even thinking about that. Do you know how crazy this concert is? For me to even think about that is a waste of my time.

The approach of getting 13 artists all in the same place and to perform all of these hits is so much more positive than I have to put into that.

That little talking, that stuff means nothing to me.

In other words… ‘shut up Bow-Wow we’ve got work to do‘!

Dupri goes on to explain his decision to host a So So Def Anniversary show after all these years, stating:


I’m at a moment in life where I had a couple of my friends pass away and it made me feel as though maybe I should take advantage of this opportunity while I’m here. All the artists are here, well and healthy.

You never know what the 21st anniversary will look or feel like.
