Jermaine Dupri currently has his hands full creating the next big rap star on his reality show The Rap Game. But, he also has his sights set on catapulting the career of another young artist … Chris Brown. Yep according to Dupri, Brown has all the makings of a mega star but just hasn’t worked with the right producer to get him to that level.
“I think the world needs Chris Brown and Jermaine Dupri to do a record. I think it’s only a matter of time before that happens at some point,” explained the So So Def Founder, who has created mega hits for both Mariah Carey and Usher. “I believe he has what it takes to be one of the biggest stars in the world, but he hasn’t found a producer that can really lock in with him to bring his music to life.”
According to Dupri the two have discussed it, but he believes Brown just isn’t ready yet. “I think because I’ve worked with Usher there’s been some hesitance,” said Durpi. “But I feel like people know me as a producer. I make my suits specifically for that person. My Mariah music doesn’t sound like my Usher music, my Usher music don’t sound like my Mariah music, so if I made a record for Chris Brown it would very well not sound like either one of those.”
We certainly would buy that album. Would you? While we anxiously wait be sure to catch Dupri’s new show The Rape Game on Lifetime Fridays at 10pm.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
