Jermaine Dupri Made President of Island Records' Urban Division



Jermaine Dupri, who quit Virgin Records last year, has been made president of Island Records' urban division.

Jermaine Dupri, a Grammy-winning producer and R&B mogul, has been appointed as the president of Island Records Urban Music, a new division of the Island Def Jam Music Group (IDJ).

Due to such fact, Dupri, who quit Virgin Records last year, will now oversee Island's entire urban music operation. He will, moreover, produce artists on IDJ and the entire Universal Music Group family of labels.

His being inducted to the position of president reunites Dupri with IDJ's CEO/Chairman, Antonio "L.A." Reid, who helmed Arista when it distributed Dupri's So So Def imprint from 2000-2005.

"I'm so excited to be reunited with L.A. Reid because most of my biggest hits were when he and I worked together," Dupri said. "And then to be working side by side with Steve Bartels - I don't think there's a better team because he's by far the best in the game. I can't wait for us to start stuntin' on y'all."
