Jermain Dupri Says Money Ruined Music

June 3, 2008

As part 2 of a 5 part series JD gives a rant about money corrupting and ruining music.  He says that people paying attention to money, Soundscan, and charging too much money for tracks caused trouble for the industry.  JD then declares that he’s in it for the love.

I truly agree with JD that kid been there done that and still doing it. that’s why hip-hop got all this bubble gum rap trash poppin off these days. Since when does making a rap about candy (laffy taffy) become hip-hop? I love the hommie DJ Premo and Rakim because they still put out real hip-hop. They need to bring back real rappers and producers to bring the game back. Groups such as Pete Rock and CL Smooth, DAS EFX, Nice and Smooth, EPMD, Lord of the Underground and many others just to name a few.
