Power 106 family Jermaine Dupri is making major moves as he is the second hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The news comes a year after Jay-Z made history as the first hip-hop artist to be inducted last June.
We have Dupri to thank for shaping hip-hop with some of our all-time favorites including Usher and Alicia Key’s “My Boo,” Janet Jackson’s “Rock with U,” Bow Wow’s “Like You,” and more recently, Bryson Tiller’s “Don’t.”
In addition to his impressive list of songwriting credits, Dupri has released his own albums and launched his major record label, So So Def Recordings.
Dupri excitedly shared the news on his Snapchat and Twitter earlier today. Congrats Jermaine from the Power 106 family!
