Jermaine Dupri Closes Cafe Dupri

    It isn't all good for Jermaine Dupri. The music mogul recently closed his Cafe Dupri in Atlanta and blames the economy saying “The economy has changed dramatically and people just aren’t eating out as much anymore,” JD told AllHipHop.com. “People are cutting back everywhere and a lot of companies, including Café Dupri, are feeling the affect. For the past two months business at the Café has been down and if the business isn’t making money, I feel its a smart move to shut it down. Bottom line: if it doesn't make money, it doesn't make sense.”

    Employees of the cafe recently appeared on local television station WSB-TV saying they weren't paid for their work after showing up last week and seeing a sign that said "thanks for patronizing Café Dupri. We have closed indefinitely."
