Jermaine Dupri Criticizes Hip Hop Industry’s Lack of Support for Young Talent



In an interview with Hip-Hop DX, Jermaine Dupri questioned whether the Hip Hop community truly cares about young artists, as he promotes his signee, Young Dylan. The music executive expressed confusion as to why his 14-year-old artist is not receiving the same media coverage as his older peers, and wonders if the industry views rappers who start their careers at a young age as “real rap.” Despite acknowledging that some people may not like Young Dylan’s music, Jermaine questions why outlets that claim to support all aspects of Hip Hop fail to cover his projects, and feels that the exclusion of young artists is an issue that needs to be addressed.

Young Dylan first rose to fame in 2020 as the star of his own Nickelodeon show, created by Tyler Perry, where he portrayed an aspiring rapper. Recognizing his potential, veteran music executive Jermaine Dupri started working with Dylan and has been helping him pursue a career in the rap game ever since.
