JD’s Bright Idea

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Jermaine Dupri is showing his creativity as a business man by launching a cafe, a line of vodka, and a hotel chain, Hotel D. He was really thinking outside of the box. We doubt that other music moguls possess this type of originality.

    Amazing…I saw he had a personal blog on Interracialchatting.com with his hot pictures and blog, a private site for diversely ethnic singles. The blog is updated very often. I think it may be ture.

    Everyone is trying to follow in Jay-Z’s footprints. I remember when it was not cool to be commercial. I’m glad people started to wise up. Those same ones talking about people selling out are the ones sitting back broke. Get money, it’s 2008 after all!

    Only stupid ghetto trash would buy any of this rubbish. Just because he is Jermayne Dupri he has to be good at making vodka and running a hotel? stupid ghetto mentality. and he looks like a dork anyway

    Good for JD. It does seem that he is biting off of Jay but so what. Jay aint a bad guy to bite when it comes down to making money. There is enough money to go around so I’m glad to see that another brother will be able to take advantage of that.

    Hotel D? Thats pretty wack but congrats to him!

  • NIC

    Are you serious??????????? Jay-Z has killed the game with creative business ventures. This dude already has a hotel in the works, stadium, sport teams, and has invested in a ton of other stuff. JD is playing follow the leader. Dame Dash had a vodka first and now Puff has one too.

    Where does the creativity come in?????????????/

    damn seems like everything Jay-Z does Jermaine follows..wow..the only thing Jermaine did first was produce

    Seriously? Is that all rappers can think to invest their money into is liquor, sex (Magic Stick Condoms), and hotels to do it all in? How about building a community health facility? A school? A transporation company catering to single parents and the elderly? ETC ETC ETC!!! I’m tired of MF’s giving away shoes and bikes to kids like their doing something, how about books? A damn bicycle can’t get you good grades.

    Yes, Jermaine is definitely a follower, never the leader or innovator, so unoriginal, like a “litte” troll puppet, he’s annoying…what a loser…

    Jermaine needs to come see me for a psychic reading. He’s thinking a little too large!

    Come in for your own psychic reading!

    @Paige,I agree w/you why not invest in our future, something to make life better for someone esle, instead of being so freakin selfish…

  • Nikki

    I find it very hard to believe that JD would so obviously copy Jay’s every move. But if he did, so what. He could do alot worse than following behind Jay. That man is definitely a go-getta.


    duh….Jay Z is already on that hotel, vodka, clothes, sports team, etc

  • Dalia (Take That Pic Of Lil Kim Down!)

    Dang, when a “bot” makes the first comment on a site, it is time to seriously think about leaving.

    As for Jermaine, I wish him all the luck with his ventures. It’s good to see black men doing things like this.

    It seems like they are trying to keep their money on the higher end of society. I doubt that I would stay at “Hotel D” and he is wrong for that name – for real. Maybe its a hybrid of The W & Hotel Derek.

    *I bet if any celebs decide to stay there they will be getting comped & hooked up and whatever dummy that decides to patronize/high side will be paying full price & getting taxed.

    What about the people that are from low SES that spend all their hard earned money on their ish? I know it would be really nice if they were to have summer camps, prep programs, or hell something with students. How nice it would be if they did mentoring or internships…

    @ Becky You seem to have no love black people, so why do you take such interest in all these posts about blacks day & night & post constantly? Are you having inner conflict because of your fascination with all things black? Do you want to be blacked? Whats going on?

  • SIX Shooter (WHOMP)

    @ Becky I should have said no love for black people, but nevertheless, whats going on?

  • help me

    he’s a bit of a midge but I’d still hit…carry on…

  • SIX Shooter (WHOMP)

    As to the post. Good for him. He likes it I love it.
