Jermaine Dupri’s discovery of rap duo Kris Kross at the age of 19 became the springboard for a 25-year career that has spawned 33 No. 1 hits across genres and an induction into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. Find out how Jermaine worked with Usher, Xscape, Bow Wow, and more to become a forefather of the Atlanta music scene on Blueprint.

I really like this interview and have mad respect for JD’s contribution to music! Respectfully, I just wanted to point out that Q-tip from A Tribe Called Quest was rocking a baseball jersey in the Check the Rhime video, which came out before Kris Kross. And, there were other hip hop acts that wore baseball jerseys before and around the same time. Wearing baseball jerseys was a common fashion, among “everyday people,” long before ‘92. We were rocking them in ‘89/‘90, as 19/ 20 year olds.

Interesting that he didn't feel respected for so long. In my eyes he always has been. I always admired his versatility. He has always been in my top 10 producers of all time.

“I’ve been telling people this everyday if you look at that Kriss Kross poster up there, Kriss Kross has on jerseys, this was in 1992. Nobody in hip-hop you can’t think of nobody else in hip-hop in ’92 that was wearing baseball jerseys, so that means after 1992 wearing baseball jerseys, football jerseys, basketball jerseys all of that came from me and Kriss Kross,” said Dupri....What about Phife?

DJ Nabs exposed the C of TLC on twitter in 2013 for dating Chris Kelly of Kris Kross while he was underage (allegedly). Chitlins did an interview after Chris Kelly's death (Allegedly). She said that they were very close and she used to hang out at his house with his mom. She also said that she used to pick him up (I guess because he was too young to drive). Type in "Chris Kelly's Mentor Jermaine Dupri: I Wish I Could Have Saved Him" in the Bing Search. (Allegedly).. I think Chitlins is one of the adults that Chris Kelly's mother was talking about (allegedly). Chitlins has a pattern with teenage black boys (allegedly). In Usher's "Behind The Music" Special Chitlins admitted that she was attracted to Usher when she was 21 and he was 14 (allegedly). She was blushing saying that he had "cute dimples" and that she also said that he was "born sexy" (allegedly). Chitlins eventually dated Usher when he became "legal" so this seems like grooming (allegedly).

I don't like the selection of the person asking questions. Should've got someone with knowledge of JDs career. Seems rushed and could've been wayyyy better. JD is a damn legend

Here is a blueprint to follow... TO ALL RICH BLACK AMERICAN CELEBRITES: Now that you are rich, what about collectively using your influence & economic power to build something for future black generations... Look at what Akon is doing, & build smaller versions of his vision, for progressive minded black Americans all over then United States. These suburban towns & or cities would be for the purpose of Collectively building future Black American economic empowerment... Based on the premise that most black Americans, just like other ethnic groups are not built to be multi-millionaires or billionaires; many will ended up being the workforce to maintain & grow the economy of a town, city or nation...
