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.
