#FMTrends: Jermaine Dupri speaks on Outkast and Female Hip Hop



Jermaine Dupri Says He is More Influential than Outkast and Calls Today’s Female Rap Scene “Stripper Rap”

Jermaine Dupri had 2 interviews last week and people wanted to shoot him out of a cannon. First, he always had stated that he had a bigger influence on Atlanta Hip Hop over Outkast. Outkast slander in general is almost blasphemous and JD doubled down on his take. Then to further piss the world off, he sounded off on today’s female rap scene. He said they all sound like strippers. It might look like JD reached the Quincy Jones point in his career where he lets everything fly and doesn’t care what we think.

Jermaine Dupri vs. Outkast

Outkast is one the biggest duos in Hip Hop history. Dupri gave us Kriss Kross, Da Brat and Dem Franchise Boyz. He has collaborated with Usher, Mariah Carey, Bow Wow and Janet Jackson. So So Def Intern No I.D and Dupri contributed to Jay-Z’s American Gangster. Outkast’s impact is bigger in Hip Hop is bigger than Dupri in Atlanta and worldwide. Black Eye Peas before they went pop was Diet Outkast Zero. Travis Scott, J .Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, and etc. are all influenced by Outkast.

Jermaine Dupri Gets Dragged for Stripper Rap Comment

Many people were up in arms over JD’s comments on female rap. Cardi B defended her music and spoke up for Rhapsody and Tierra Whack. She even said her song “Be Careful” has nothing to do with the strip club. Ari Lennox from Dreamville went to Instagram Live and dissed Dupri in a freestyle. Doja Cat went to Twitter and spoke up, which got reposted by Jada Pinkett Smith. JD would try to clean up his mess by having an all female rap cypher(Date TBD). That move got blasted by 6lack labeling it more reactive than proactive.
