Jermaine Dupri responds to claims he’s no longer relevant

Jermaine Dupri has a message for anyone who believes that he’s no longer “relevant”. 

The legendary producer made this known during a sit-down on the latest episode of the I AM ATHLETE podcast which arrived on Monday (February 13), where he addressed the critics who’ve labelled him irrelevant and reminded them all that he actually hasn’t slowed down at all.

“I done heard n-ggas say, ‘JD ain’t relevant no more.’ I’ve had a hit record every year that you can think of – you just don’t even really realise it,” JD said. When asked about 2020 and 2021, he was ready with receipts.

“DVSN – ‘If I Get Caught.’ Ari Lennox, ‘Pressure,” he responded. “2020 was Usher and Ella Mai. By the way, if you from the rap world and you listening to only trap music, then you gon’ be like, ‘JD ain’t made no music.’ Cause you ain’t listening to R&B music. You don’t know. Matter fact – I left something out. I put out Anthony Hamilton album last year.”

He continued: “So I’m saying, if you not really into what’s going on, you might have missed it. So you can say what you want to say, but that’s a reckless statement for you to put it out there unless you know what’s happening.”
