Jermaine Dupri Stealing Money From Jagged Edge?!

There's drama with the So So Def clique. Jermaine Dupri is being accused of being a crook--by his own artists Jagged Edge. YBF sources inside the So So Def camp say the Kyle, 1/4 of the group, isn't happy with the direction the group is going. Likely because they're not really going anywhere at all. They were hot several years ago, and now Kyle is telling everyone who will listen he's not feeling the fact they're not making much money or getting much pub. He's actually trying to go solo but can't find anyone to give him a deal. Kyle has allegedly been telling folks that "J.D. is a crook and did the group wrong".  Basically saying J.D.'s the reason Jagged Edge fell off.  Hmmm.  Jagged Edge isn't technically signed to any label as of now after they were dropped from Def Jam. And that was before J.D. got the axe.  Jermaine stealing ish from his camp isn't a good look.   But time will tell if certain folks will say anything because they are just bitter about the way things turned out....

I agree with

I agree with Tiffany. Although most of their songs sound alike, JE is truly talented vocally. Maybe they just need someone to help them with new ideas for the instrumentals. Too bad ‘popularity’ overrides ‘true talent’ these days. P.S.- T. Pain Eb-be-body. New to the YBF crew!!!!

However, I was NOT impressed with JE's last CD. I liked about 3 songs on it. Evrything sounded the same. They have a unique sound, but that CD was much too much of the same.

I actually loved ALL of JE's CDs. You're right the marketing sux and unfortunately when you have a group of 4 and a greedy mgr (JD) there isn't much money left to split all them different ways! I have a little cousin trying to get in the business in ATL.. my advice don't eff w/JD or Gregg Street and don't be trying to create a group...do it solo!

Kyle you need MORE people! The twins seem to be straight... that's because they were writing and producing. You and Wingo should have been doing the same. And didn't you your house busted for drugs? Is that business not profitable either?
