Times were much easier when Jermaine Dupri was hitting The Chickenhead in the “Right Thurr” remix video but the past is the past. In today’s world, fans of longtime friend and collaborator Mariah Carey want his head.
In an open letter posted on his Global 14 website, he acknowledges complaints from the Elusive Champagne Guzzler’s lambs. (He was announced as her manager last October.)
“Okay enough is enough!! I can’t continue to let you think, what you see or don’t see is a result of me not knowing what I’m doing,” he wrote. “This is bigger than me and in the music business things don’t go as fast as you would always like them to.”
“If you know my history, you know I want to go down as one of the greatest produces of all times,” he continued. “I want to be mentioned with the greats like Berry Gordy and Clive Davis when people talk about putting out artist.”
“So for me, allowing you to believe I don’t care about the promotion of the Mariah record and I don’t see you screaming at me, that this song and that song needs to be a single, goes against everything that I’m about, believe me!” he added. “Everything that you question Will be answered ASAP!!!!”
