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.

    Chris “I can remember when he DID produce albums 4 Usher and Mariah. But the last albums he produced were 4 Janet and they both TANKED badly!!!!!!!!! Ask Usher his opinion. Me personally Babyface can make u reach deep down in2 your soul and his album w Toni was excellent. Me personally I’d LOVE another Exclusive OR Fame album w Colin Tilley directing the videos; nothing personal 2 you as a producer & director”!!!!!!!!!! And SORRY was the 1st confessions song done w/o JD……….

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
