Some flashback footage of Jermaine Dupri has been circulating the net showing the mogul way before he was famous. JD rocks a highlighted gumby while his mom, Cecelia Mauldin speaks about her rapper/producer son and his talents. In the video, JD (circa 1986) gives a bit of advice to up and coming producers by telling them that it’s a must to have the right people behind them and to never give up. It’s so refreshing to see how hard work and passion pays off.
Fast forward 13 years and you’ve got Jermaine (circa 2009) joined by his Ocean’s 7 crew which includes Trey Songz and Nelly. Nelly did a bit of a flashback himself to Country Grammar, as he reprises his singing chops on the chorus of the new joint.
