Jermaine Dupri and Jay Z have a special bond. The super producer expanded on their relationship on the Rap Radar podcast, explaining that Jay has conversations with him “that he probably don’t have with nobody else.”
“Me and Jay have like, conversations that I’m sure he probably don’t have with nobody else because you know, that’s how we met each other,” said Dupri before recalling the time Jay sampled a line off Dupri’s tape. When they finally linked up in person, theconnection was instant. “When we had a conversation, we sounded like two people that knew each other already.” The two later combined Dupri’s Southern sound with Jay’s Harlem style on their 1998 hit, “Money Ain’t A Thang,” which is obviously one of the best dirty South/New York rap collaboration of all time.
What is far more intriguing though, during the interview JD dropped the bomb that he knows the title of his upcoming new album. “it might be done,” says the So So Def founder. Welp, there you have it, guys! Hope more details on the LP emerge soon enough.
