Jermaine Dupri – Rappers Who Were Born Rich

Jermaine Dupri Rapers Born Rich

For Jermaine Durpri, the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree. The So So Def founder was introduced to the music industry at a young age, thanks to his father Michael Mauldin, former president of Colombia Records. At the age of 12, Jermaine landed a gig as a dancer for the group Whodini. He eventually gave up dancing and set his sights on producing music and discovering artists. While he’s known for being a producer and executive more than he is for being a rapper, Dupri had no problem launching the careers of hip-hop artists Kris Kross, which led him to write their mega-hit ‘Jump.’ In 1998, the dancer turned producer released an album of his own titled, ‘Life in 1472′, featuring his popular hit with Jay-Z, ‘Money Ain’t a Thang.’ Over the years, Jermaine has been responsible for producing tracks for artists like TLC, Janet JacksonUsher, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys to name a few.
