Jermaine Dupri appeared on The Breakfast Club this week, armed with controversial answers for Charlamagne tha God’s popular contentious questioning style. So, when he inquired about whether he felt he was more influential to Atlanta hip-hop culture than Outkast, he failed to shy away from discussion on the matter.
“Depending on what type of hip-hop you talking about, we come from two different places in hip-hop,” he said. “As far as culture, me. I brought people to Atlanta that had never seen Atlanta. I showed everybody in the world [the famous strip club] Magic City. I was the first person to start throwing money in the club.”
“I had to pay for all the magazines to come to Atlanta. No one was paying attention to what’s going on… as far as culture goes and having parties, bringing Puff, bringing [DJ] Envy and [DJ] Clue to Atlanta, that was all me,” Dupri added.
In addition to his place in Atlanta hip-hop history, Dupri also discussed his relationship with Janet Jackson, as well as Usher and his herpes allegation scandal.
