The “A”s own Jermaine Dupri is a multi-talented entrepreneur. With longevity in the music industry and several successful business ventures, such as Cafe Dupri and Studio 72, he’s holding the world in the palm of his itty bitty hands! His latest venture will be in the hotel industry. That’s right boys and girls, Jermaine wants to start his own chain of hotels called Hotel D.

I’m sure it will be just as successful as that dang vodka he makes….what’s it called again?? (Source)

I know….I know….better late than NEVER! Jay-z hosted a party at the Velvet Room last Sunday for his American Gangster album release. The usual “A” listers were in attendance….Jermaine Dupri, Young Jeezy, DJ Toomp, Usher, Frank Ski (V-103), DJ Trauma (the Superfriends DJs), in addition to Rick Ross and Freeway. I also have to mention Alex Gidewon (AG Entertainment), the man who made it all possible. The only people missing were T.I. and Michael Vick…
