Jermaine Dupri has just been fired from his position as the President of Island Records:

AllHipHop.com has received an exclusive report that Atlanta-based producer Jermaine Dupri’s tenure as President of Island Records Urban Music has come to an end. A formal announcement of his departure from the position, which he has held for nearly two years, may come as early as Thursday (Jan 8). Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source close to the situation confirmed to AllHipHop.com that Dupri has in fact been terminated effective immediately.

The recession is even taking it’s toll on the big dogs of music.. This advice is going out to all entertainers: Save the money that you have left and stop making gaudy, extravagant purchases before you end up living in a box, sleeping on your precious chain.

    The whole music industry should be fired. I am upset at the fact that RNB music doesn’t not exist the way it did any the 90’s when it was about feeling pain, joy love and lost. Now its all about the hottest beat.

    What was the last bona fide hit that was anyway associated with Jermaine Dupri?

    I’m just curious.

  • told you so

    @ Daniel
    It was “I missed the Bus” by Kris Kross

  • SOMER

    NWNY….I totally agree. Back in the 80’s & 90’s you had the best R&B and the best rap share the airwaves. Now you have all rap (Bad & good) that dominates. The radio stations will allow 2 singers at one time on to their playlist and you best believe that one is a lip sync/dance artist.

    Here in Atl, you can record some rap bullshit at noon & Greg Street will play it on his show at 6pm. The other night I heard on Greg’s show some hood hoes rapping

    I DON’T TALK
    I DON’T ARGUE
    I JUST HIT THAT BITCH WITH A BOTTLE

    She just keep saying that over & over. RAP WITH NO SUBSTANCE! Mint Condition got the hottest R&B joint out right now & can’t get it played on V103.

    I DONT TALK
    I DONT ARGUE
    I JUST HIT THAT BITCH WITH A BOTTLE
    THEN I’M SITTING IN A CELL DOING A 10 YEAR BID
    WISHING I COULD HAVE MY KIDS BUT THEY WITH CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES

    MY WELFARE ABOUT TO GET DENIED
    AND MY HOOD NIGGA STOLD MY RIDE
    NOW I’M MAD AS HELL
    CUZ I’M SITTING IN A CELL

    ALL CUZ I DONT ARGUE
    AND I HIT THAT BITCH WITH A BOTTLE.

    Steve Erkel-20years later-reciting the pledge of alligance.

  • BLESSED

    JD IS GONNA GET ANOTHER JOB BUT HOW MANY OF US CAN LOSE THAT MANY JOBS IN 3 YEARS AND STILL GET ANOTHER ONE IN THE SAME FIELD. WHEN ARE THESE COMPANIES GONNA LEARN AND GIVE ANOTHER PERSON A CHANCE. CAUSE JD AINT BAD BUT HE HASNT BEEN RESPECTED FOR AWHILE. PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY RESPECT HIM BUT TO THE YOUTH HE PLAYED OUT LIKE JANET

  • c from stl

    @Daniel

    I think it was Mariah Carey’s album ’emancipation of MiMi’…. I think that album was what catapulted him to this position in the first place because he produced alot of the tracks on there… That’s the last thing I can remember.

  • H-towndownunder

    @Somer

    You are so right MINT CONDITION does have the baddest song out right now..and they barely play it on the only true R&B station we have here in Houston….I LOVES ME SOME MINT CONDITION..

  • SOMER

    RAQUEL26………….LMAO!

  • Raquel26

    You know what? I dont think I’ve heard that song yet by Mint Condition.

    Whats the name of the track? I want to look it up so I can listen to it.

  • PhillyGrownYoungWoman

    earth to Jermaine Dupri: stop partying and handle business!!!

  • SOMER

    Mint Condition single title….Nothing left to say. The song writing is classic.

  • nikkib

    They only play that Mint Condition song on Music Choice in Philly. It is the shit though. It needs some airplay.

  • Naija King

    Raquel26, looool, you’re wrong 4 dat..loool

    ooompa loompa..

  • r&bfoevah

    this music industry sucks balls! R&B music sound like a bunch of doublemint gum comercials.
    Brandy even lost her soul! they dont realize that 10 years from now we wont have any soul jam oldie but goodies to bump. BRING REAL BLACK MUSIC BACK PLEASE!!…DAMN!

  • kit

    NOT surprizing he left jAnet career bullet ridden aNd on the critical list NOT ASPECTING TO SURVIVE

  • darealwifey

    Not surprised. What has Jermaine done for them? Jay Z was a great label head. Jermaine got too wrapped up in trying to control Janet’s career. He should have let her do her, and he should’ve done him. Never mix business and personal.

  • Crazy Ass Rodney

    Top 30 you unemployed SNITCHEZ!!!!

  • BossipKeepShitGoing

    jay z was not a good president imo. what act besides rihanna and kanye west did good under his leadership? and then jayz put more into teirra marie more than he did with rihanna. and in the end results rihanna did so much better.
