Jermaine Dupri Takes Artists Under His New Wing



Under Island Records, Jermaine Dupri has selected some artists to be signed, including the artist in his former So So Def Records.

As the newly appointed president of Island Record, Jermaine Dupri's first task is to sign new deals with urban artists. Completing the task immediately, he has some promising names under the records' wings.

Among his choice is R&B group Jagged Edge which he had worked with nearly 10 years ago under So So Def label. Under the new recording house, the group's new album is predicted to be out in the end of this year. It will contain some imprints from the previous label and will also be the follow up of the 2006 self-titled album.

Besides working with reputable artists, Dupri also seeks the opportunity to work with new bloods. It is also reported that he has signed a new Californian rapper named Hot Dolla whose debut album is in progress.

Before Island Records, Dupri was the former president of urban music at Virgin. He resigned from the position in October 2006. His greatest success as a label president is the discovery of young rappers such as Bow Wow and Kris Kross.
