About Jermaine Dupri
In 1992, Jermaine Dupri introduced to the world two 12-year-olds who wore their pants backwards by the name of Kris Kross. In February of that same year their first song “Jump” was released and immediately soared to #1 on the pop charts remaining for 8 weeks and in doing so labeled Jermaine as a 19-year-old wunderkind, super-producer.
Now, twenty five years later after the continued success with helping to develop other teen stars (Xscape, Usher, Da Brat, TLC, Bow Wow and more) Jermaine is back on the scene with his So So Def Brand, adding his signature stamp not only to the music of today’s teen culture but television and multi-media as well.
“The Rap Game” debuted January 1, 2015 on Lifetime and after three seasons the series has introduced to the world 15 young stars and crowned two winners – Miss Mulatto (season one) and Mani (season two). The third season of “The Rap Game” is currently airing on Lifetime Fridays at 10pm/9c, with the season three-winner set to be announced on April 7th 2017.
