Jermaine Dupri

Jermaine Dupri 

Though he’s primarily known for heading up So So Def Recordings, Jermaine Dupri was also one of the producers that helped TLC hone their distinct sound.

While making his name on Atlanta’s music scene in the early ‘90s, Dupri was tapped to work on TLC’s Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip. In addition to production, he also had arranging and mixing credits on the LP. He also helped pen the album cut “Bad By Myself.”

When he regrouped with L.A. Reid, Babyface, and Dallas Austin to work on CrazySexyCool, Dupri had already founded So So Def and hit paydirt with Kris Kross, Xscape, and Da Brat. Dupri lent his writing and production talents to album cuts, but also worked on the LP’s final mastering and mixing. He also contributed to 1999′s FanMail, notably with former Xscape member Kandi Burruss.

Jermaine Dupri remains one of the hottest producers out there, having previously worked with Boyz II Men, Usher, and Lil’ Kim. Mariah Carey recently hired him as her manager.
