Jermaine "JD" Dupri Biography

Jermaine "JD" Dupri's empire has moved and grooved us through an unbelievable list of career achievements beginning at age 11 and leading to the production of his first album at the age of 14. By 19, Dupri had discovered Kris Kross and garnered his first multi-platinum success.

Not soon after, Dupri formed a joint venture with Columbia Records and So So Def was born. For more than ten years, So So Def has become one of the most successful independent music labels in the industry. Under Dupri's creative vision, the label has produced chart-topping and platinum-selling artists from Xscape to Da Brat to Jagged Edge to Bow Wow. So So Def has also become a business conglomerate that encompasses So So Def Productions, Southside Studios, So So Def Recordings and So So Def Radio.

In 1998, Dupri (the artist) branched out and released his debut album, Jermaine Dupri Presents Life In 1472. Chock full of hits such as "Money Ain't A Thang" and "The Party Continues," the Grammy-nominated collection went platinum and further established Dupri's substantial musical legacy.

With his sophomore release, Instructions, Dupri crafted another sonic masterpiece. Known for making musical magic for some of the world's biggest Pop, R&B and Hip-Hop artists, JD has crafted hits for superstars including Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, TLC, Usher, Bow Wow, Anthony Hamilton, Alicia Keys, Ludacris, Monica and more. In 2004, JD again partnered with R&B superstar Usher for his album, Confessions, to co-write and produce the Grammy award winning chart-toppers: "Burn," My Boo," and "Confessions, Part 2."

JD then came back in 2005, a landmark year for him with the monster success of Mariah Carey's, Emancipation of Mimi, for which JD produced and co-wrote four hits ("We Belong Together," "Shake it Off," "Don't Forget About Us," and "Get Your Number"). JD also claimed a Best R&B Song Grammy for "We Belong Together."

Dupri has garnered countless professional awards from music industry organizations, publications, broadcast media, and various civic groups, including Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell's proclamation of Jermaine Dupri Day on October 9, 1999. In 2000, he received the first annual Phoenix Award from the NAACP in addition to many other honors.

In 2002, he received the Heroes Awards from the Atlanta Chapter of NARAS, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. In 2006, he received ASCAP's highest honor, their Golden Note Award, won his sixth R&B Songwriter Of the Year award from the noted songwriters organization, received the prestigious "Music of the Heart" award from the Lili Claire Foundation, is the youngest artist ever to be inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and was recently honored by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for his humanitarian work.
