MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that yesterday Island Def Jam fired Jermaine Dupri. Here's how the NY Post is reporting it:
JERMAINE Dupri has left the Universal Music building. Dupri was president of Island Records until he was unceremoniously booted on Wednesday.
A source said, "After [his girlfriend] Janet Jackson's album and tour bombed, he basically didn't come back to work. He still collected a paycheck, but didn't bother to do anything that he was supposed to do, like find artists, release records or actually show up.
Executives tried to talk to him, but he just lost heart."
Dupri was widely blamed for Jackson's album flop as he insisted on letting her get her way on song selection and production of the release, "Discipline."
He didnt do anything but ruined Janet's career and help Mariah's
He better go by the stop sign starting from ***.
oh no, janet's leaving?
I dont think he silly enough to sell drugs. He too high profile.
FO SELLIN D R U G S IN THE COMPANY WAT A DUMB ***
saw this yesterday
WHATS UP WITH THAT PIC??
Are ya'll trying to say he's the one slinging coke? And i doubt he got fired for not coming in and etc. He can't be that stupid.
hmmmmm? he couldn't have cared....They blamed virgin for her first flop and brought her over to def jam along with him and she flopped again..maybe it's u JD!!!
Jermaine didn't ruin her career. She always wants to sing that dumb *** bubble gum music, and she's over 40. She effed up her own career..NEXT...
So I guess now we know who yesterday's blind item was about
he´ll be alright
he could be the first bruh to play a OOMPA LOOMPA
He should go back to break dancin!
He still has money OUT his ***..... Mr jackson will never be broke lmbao!!!
MTO step your game up. dupri will continue to produce and write songs, and he's also been doing photography. i doubt he will need to sell drugs. and janet, as "reported" above, wanted to select the songs she wanted and dupri let her, so he's partly to blame but she's more to blame thinking because she's janet she can just sing whatever kind of song and we will buy it - no ma'am (FOH)
DUH!!!!! LIVE OFF JANET! LET'T NOT FORGET HER LAST NAME. SHE HAVE OLD MONEY!!!
MTO call they self dry snitching...
*** JD got a big *** head!!!
OK IS JANET PREGNANT OR NOT?
DANG NOW THAT THEY ARE HIRING WHERE CAN I SIGN UP? I NEED A JOB WHERE I CAN GET A CHECK AND DON'T HAVE TO SHOW UP.
Hmmmmm.......is he the answer to the blind item you guys had yesterday?
Jermaine is worth 60 million the last I heard, and Janet is worth 150 million. I think he'll be alright.
He's good I heard the circus is looking for a new head midget to run the clowns..Go for it JD!" Tell *** buck 40 sent ya.... Real Talk.
womp womp...i hope you got the receipts for that million dollar baby room
Again MTO please! your killing me with your BS. Jermaine going be just fine.
*** I didnít realize his head was that big I bet he got some sort of telepathic abilities
Wow I guess he was the blind item yesterday. Oh well. @Staypoppin- You right though. Janet is worth some 150 and I know he got money. Nevermind. the blind item was referring to Jigga.
maybe he can link up with the top ranking celeb fr the ATL that's selling coke these day
i guess he is the one slinging
okay well he must of been the blind item from yesterday fo sho
he movin them rocks
*** SO IT IS JERMAINE DUPRI THAT SELLING DRUGS, AND JANET IS NOT GETTING BACK WITH HIS *** LIL *** NEITHER, HE IS A PRIME EXAMPLE THAT MONEY COMES AND GOES
DANG! NOW HOW IS DA RAT GONNA GET HIS CHEEEEZE? JJ IS WASHED UP ANYWAY. SHE NEED TO STOP TRYING TO SING AND CONCENTRATE ON DOING SOME CHITLIN CIRCUIT PLAYS OR SOMETHING.
I wonder did he leave the building saying - "You know what dis is!" LOL!
IDK MTO, is he the blind item selling crack!
Mediatakeout Sdfu! ..This Man ..Has His Own *** Club, Restaurant , Clothing Line.
I want a position like that! Show up when I want, get paid like clockwork, be free to fail, ... that's the life right there-lol. I don't think it's JD.
dang, jd!!! is this on the real???? janet done messed the boy head up...he was always a professional.
that's what happens when you get caught up with the crazy jacksons...i mean i love janet and all...but we all know she crazy!!
JD got fired? not a smart move! i know he's little and scrawney looking...even scary, but he's a hitmaker.
Somebody will pick him up. He still has brother to brutha, right? He will lose his mind instead of his heart if Janet ever leaves him. I bet he pinches himself every morning because he can't believe he's with Janet. Janet just has to look outside her comfort zone to come up with some hits. We know she has no singing abilities so she has to focus on up beat songs.
his restaurant cafe dupri also closed down here in ATL,not a good start to the year for him. ***.
Stay strong little one. Oh, the sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow...
Dam J.D suck it up & get it together honey!! U was Mr. Money Ain't A Thing.We can't do it like that,oh well I'm sure he'll bounce back.
he'll be fine! quit celebrating a black man's supposed downfall, u hateful mofos. JD will be just fine. he's been hustling since teenage and made a huge business out of it, so i'm so sure he'll be just fine.
quit celebrating a black man's supposed downfall, u hateful mofos.
You know misery loves company.
ok jermaine got some money
left right? and aint janet pregnant?
better chill out
big azz forehead
Jermaine will be fine, I think he still has some of them old stacks left and good investments. If all else fails, they can sell the pictures of the new baby to People magazine...although I wonder if they'll get as much as the "other" celebs...like 6million for the Brangelina baby!! Oh...that is if Janet is really preggers, of course.
He can start slanging ye with Dallas!
Poor lil man. He'll be alright.
according to the post yesterday,
perhaps he is the one who
resorted to selling cocaine...
i hope not, but it WAS kinda implied
AND there needs to be a new
breed of artists..people
need something fresh...not the
same ol ish...
i'm right here JD!!! We

his head it lyk a light bulb
Well, the 1st thing he'd better do is take off those where's-waldo glasses!
I HEARD HE WAS SLINGIN HEAT.....HOPE JANET NOT PREGO NOW
Is he crazy in this economy. They are calling it "BLACK FRIDAY" today here in NYC. Layoffs are happening across the city, right now. It's a sad day - I'm telling you and this guy is simply just not showing up to a Presidential position.
WELL YOU CAN'T MIX BUSINESS WITH PLEASURE. AND I DON'T CARE HOW BAD THE SHOW WENT, SHOW YOUR AZZ UP TO YOUR *** JOB..PERIOD!! GET THAT PAYCHECK. EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT DOING A GOOD JOB, AT LEAST SHOW UP TILL THEY LAY YOU OFF. AND THEN U CAN GET SOME UNEMPLOYMENT. FIRING FROM MISCONDUCT RESULTS IN NO UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK!! DON'T BE A FOOL...
Janet(and alot of R&b/pop Artists) been Stealing from Hip Hop for more than fifteen years ...thats good for her!
JD has proved his Qualities as a producer. But thats all he is a Producer....not the Writer/ assistant/ Promotional Manager/ street team/ Sound engineer/ PR team etc.
Janet wants everything handed to her on a platinum platter!....Please J we love cause you earned it. Dont try to juss breeze by on us cause of your name!
Her and Mariah are washed up swagger jackers!!
JANET WOULD ACTUALLY HAVE SOME MORE HITS IF SHE COULD.....SING!!!
ps......would yall stop talkin bout the recession when it comes to these "celebrities"!
if they are in the 500,000 per year income bracket...that *** dont apply to them.
he still got connex in the industry im sure theres millions of 10yr olds trying to put together a group
The Slanging Crack industry is always reviewing resumes
Jermaine didn't mess up Janet's career, she just thought she could make a comeback with her no-singing old a**.
JANET HAS BEEN DONE EVER SINCE SHE SHOWED HER TITTIE ON T.V.
Don't blame that *** on Jermaine.
I HAPPENED TO LIKE THE LAST ALBUM..FOLKS AIN'T BUYING CD'S ANYMORE, THEY'RE DOWNLOADING THEM.
JD will be alright.
HE WAS ALREADY LEAVING THEM. HE'S PRESIDENT OF T.A.G. RECORDS.
Well what has he been doing lately!!? My guess is nothing so I guess that's why they fired him!! I wish him luck in whatever he ventures into!!!
@GUESSJEANS U MOST WANT IT TO BE JAYZ, WHY? ITS NOT JAYZ THEY SAID MUSIC PRODUCER FROM ATL, JAYZ IS FROM BROOKLYN NY
Maybe he should do modeling...he's very tall and handsome.
bahahaha they photoshopped his asz to perfection in that pic, 2 bad he still look like a hatian midget.
why people blaming him for janets failure?
i thought she was over years ago.
we know what his will be doing for money and its scandalous!!!!
[ go to the blog / www.wendyista.blogspot.com ]
i guess he better get on a tight budget with the money he already has...
He can star in E.T. Part II
HE THE ONE SELLING DRUGS NOW ...........MTO WHEN Y'ALL DID DAT BLING ITEM STORY
JD always was a loser to me. He did not mess up Janets career and he ain't sellin' dope. He didn't get Fired MTO if he stopped coming that means he quit. JJ is not washed up or crazy. She's older and is gonna have to actually sing like she used to and write her own ***. She's gonna have to work twice as hard as she used to but honestly I don't think she cares. She's not trying to breeze by cause of her name. She's trying to breeze by because she's already put in the work. Ya'll must be young. Janet been at this since 1974. Hollywood will use the hell out of you. So you gotta flip it... *** hollywood...get your millions and get the *** out.
BE THE CHICKEN HAWK HE IS AND FIND NEW KID ACTS TO GET RICH OFF OF, THEN LEAVE THEIR ***!
BAHAHHAH Mariah is screwed! Janet needs to dump him ASAP
Alright everybody on here need to quit trippin. This niqqa dont need a dang job. he can chillax his was through life. yall know that.
HELL HE BUILD EVERYBODY CAREER BUT JANETS! SHE NEEDS A NEW STYLE AND NEW WRITERS AND PRODUCERS! THEN SHE WILL BE OK! MAYBE SHE NEEDS POLOW THE DON, TIMBERLAND AND SWIZZ BEATS OR WHO EVER TO MAKE HER HOTT AGAIN! GOOD LUCK TO JANETS AND JERMAINE ITS ROUGH OUT THERE NOW! RECESSION!
Remember yesterday's blind item about the rap mogul selling cocaine? I'm just sayin.
Trebreezy you are dumb *** hell. And you obviously don't know you're hip hop history. Hip Hop BEEN stealing from mainstream. Have you gone mad!??! I am a music lover and a Hip Hop fanatic and I hate when people talk *** about hip hop and don't know the first! Hip hop is amazing and growing but DO NOT give credit where credit is not due. Hip hop songs use pop rock r *** b samples everyday and there's probably one being made right now. Yes, recently acts and even commercials are stealing from hip hop. Hip hop has finally arrived. But don't go gettin' beside yourself. Woooohoohoo that comment made me laugh out loud boy!
And what do you mean "thats good for her"? She didn't lose a job. And still has made cake. She still gets checks from Good Times Diff'rent Strokes Fame and The love boat. She got income on top of income on top of money on top of checks. So what do you mean good for her? She wasn't sweatin' JD's chump change *** got her own. You young boys are so used to these you chicken head gold diggin girls out here you don't no what a real woman is.
Had to get that out the way first his dumb *** comment *** me off.
JD will rise Believe that. He doesn't seem to be too smart but he's ambitious and very talented.
Good looks to whoever called MTO out for saying he got fired. LOL if I stop showing up then that means I got something else going on. Or I flat out don't need ya!
YEAH HE NEED TO GO HOW DARE HIM RELEASE THAT GARBAGE I DUNO IF ITS JANET OR HER PRODUCERS BUT SHE NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER SHE HASNT BEEN HOT SINCE I GET SO LONELY
THAT PIC IS PHOTOSHOPPED LIKE A MOFO HE DON'T LOOK HALF WAY AS DECENT AS THIS PIC LOOK.
That's love for ya. That's actually an okay picture of him. He looks so much better with his mouth closed.
20 bucks his the dude from the ATL whos selling drug
JD may be joining the drug game wit that other ATL producer...hell it might be him!!!!
I usually just come and make my comment, but I gotta address you....why do you keep sayin its JAY Z that the topic was referring to yesterday..It said a ATL producer...IS JAY Z A ATLANTA PRODUCER???? maybe i miss sumthing, but last i check he was a rapper/mogul out of New York, Please let me know, cuz you callin pple slow who say otherwise....
WTF are ya'll talking about MTO? Ya'll talking like he'll be in the unemployment line tomorrow?!
Jermaine can go into the construction business...he can break through cinder blocks with that 5 head.
spray this roach looking clown with a can of RAID and call it a wrap
Dupri will be just fine and I bet him and Janet will do a reality show together or start her clothes line or something. I think Janet was prego and lost the baby and they both became depressed. He has the right to not show up after how many dedicated years
break dancing anyone???
*** THAT!!! Discipline is a good fckin cd. They only released one single.. how is that her fault? They have to pay for that and the videos and stuff. They PLAYED HER OUT, I feel bad. That cd is hot and some of those songs could've went to Number 1 on the billboards. There are songs of all types on that cd i love it.
JANET SONG IT FOR HIM ,CONTROL!! MAYBE IT'S TO MUCH STRESS ON HIM. HE'S *** IT'S ONLY SO MUCH A LITTLE MAN CAN TAKE!!!!!!!!
Didn't JD sign that group Brutha? I like those dudes, their image needs major work, but they can really sing.
For this topic, I say the same thing I said for Janet's album... NEXT!!!!!
~I'm so ***.Y.
WELL HE KNOWS HE NOT DOIN IT UP RIGHT NOW AND HE SHOULD OF NEVER HELP OUT A SECOND TIME BECUZ HER FIRST ALBUM HE HELPED HER DO NOT SONG FLOPPED SO SHE TRIED AGAIN AND I DONT BLAME HIM I BLAME HER CUZ SHE NEED TO GIVE IT UP AND REALIZE SHE MESSED UP HIS CAREER CUZ NOW PPL THINK IT WAS ALL HIS FAULT IN REALITY ITS HER NON SINGING ***...EITHER WAY HELL NEVER BE BROKE SO HEY
Jermaine was in love and allowed his emotions to make unwise decisions with regards to Janet's career. There was a formula for her that was established way back in Milwaukee when she was younger - but the girl is 40 now and BG music just isn't selling today.
Someone with some wisdom and forethought - along with some producing and writing skills should have thought long and hard about how to bring Janet back into the limelight. In this business, you cannot stay away for long. The time between albums gets *** and ***. There are more and more records coming out daily and the competition is more fierce than ever. New artists are hitting the scene harder than ever before- independant labels, websites, myspace and other forms of distribution and getting the message out are taking over the old-fashioned record companies. The only thing they have is the abiltiy to distribute- and that's been called into question too. The "B"side players are moving up the ladder at a fast pace. Personally, I'm glad about that.
As for Dupree - he's long been over. In my opinion, he has lost his vision for the industry, his love for the music and his ability to call into play the new artists on the horizon. Like I said - he's in love and his insight was damaged and allowed him to make some very unwise choices.
In my world - when you don't report to work - you get fired. He got what he got. It is what it is.
THATS WHY COUPLES *** WORK TOGETHER COME ON JERMAINE GET IT TOGETHER BUSINESS BEFORE PLEASURE LOVE IS GOOD BUT DON'T LET IT INTERFER WITH YOUR MONEY
I second that cani a wet azz dont go with a dry pocket lol
Yeah I think you right, she must have been pregnant and lost the baby.
Her carrer been a flop, Puh-lease !
She dont even sing all that well
GOOD HIS CORNY *** NEED TO RETIRE SOMEWHERE AND GET HIS YELLOW TEETHS FIXED...
