A few months back, Jermaine Dupri started TAG Records, as a side project for the health & beauty supplies company. The idea was artists are supposed to make music on the label, and meanwhile promote the message of TAG. Now, the idea seems to be coming to fruition. It’s been announced that TAG has its first artist – Q, and he will soon be getting his own MTV show. The show is tentatively titled “Livin’ the Dream” and is set to air on September 15th. With all of Proctor & Gamble’s budget in tow, it just may work out for Q. But, in all honesty, whose tha last quality act JD actually brought about? Dem Franchize Boyz? Not so much. Let us know what you think of TAG Records and if Q is going to make it.
Chicago femcee Da Brat has just been sentenced to three years behind bars and a further seven years probation for attacking a waitress in a nightclub last year with a bottle. Looks like things can’t get much worse for the McCoy girls right now.
The alleged attack happened when a waitress at Jermaine Dupri’s Studio 72 failed to respond to Da Brat, born Shawnte Harris’s advances. The victim, a former cheer leader suffered permanent scarring from the attack. Da Brats family were in the Dekalb County, Georgia courtroom when she was sentenced.
Atlanta power couple Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson may have taken a loss when they closed the doors on Cafe Durpi and its staff last week but Janet launched her underwear line this week, Pleasure Principle to keep the couple in the spotlight. Made from the finest laces and silks the lingerie should be hitting US stores this year, the Japanese and European markets next.
Things obviously aren’t working out for JD in certain areas of his business. The PSM (pint sized mogul) has had to shut down his Atlanta eatery Cafe Dupri which is located in the Buckhead region of the city. Word is though that staff were left without their money once the place closed. PSM must be saving for his wedding afterall.
Yet another female rapper looks like she is heading ‘up north’ for a year after entering into a plea deal after assaulting a waitress last Halloween at one of JDs parties (is it me or do his parties always end in trouble for someone). Dare I say another one bites the dust? Although I am sure Da Brat will be able to handle whatever comes her way while in time out.
