Dayum JD…stop yer yellin! *sigh* I got this video in my inbox 5 times so obviously Jermaine Dupri wants y’all to know something. He’s pissed! 😯 JD says that Billboard ain’t right…how they gonna put Usher as an “alternate” cover? “The one on the front is bought and Usher’s is for free…from the label.” Hmmmm….maybe Usher’s star is dimming. JD, you ever though of that? One hot single ain’t gonna fix what’s broke. Love or not…Tameka has put that boys career to bed. It’s a shame ain’t it? Let’s hope that the entire album is on FIRE cause he’s gotta come back swangin to get his respect back. I’m rootin for you Ursh!
