Jermaine Dupri Loses President Spot At Island Records

Posted By on January 8, 2009

    Jermaine Dupri has been booted out of his President spot over at Island Records Ubran Music, according to AHH. JD held the position for less than two years where he oversaw the label's entire urban music operations, reporting directly to the label chairman Antonio "L.A." reid and Steve Bartells (President of Island Music and COO of the Island Def Jam Music Group).

    Jermaine has had other problems lately. Back in August, it was reported that he closed his Atlanta restaurant [more here]. Jermaine Dupri says he closed "Cafe Dupri" because “The economy has changed dramatically and people just aren’t eating out as much anymore."

    In related news, Jermaine Dupri recently appeared on Bow Wow's new single "Roc The Mic" [listen here]. The new video for the single features JD and Bow Wow hitting the road in a classic car, so make sure you [watch it now].
