Wiki

September 23, 1972 (1972-09-23) (age 38)

Jermaine Dupri Mauldin (born September 23, 1972; although some sources say 1973 but his debut album called Life in 1472 refers to the year of Dupri's birth, 1972), better known simply as Jermaine Dupri or J.D., is an American record producer, rapper and songwriter.

Before continuing his artistic career, Dupri opened a small bodega, "Rap Corna Guuds". He later formed the teen duo Kris Kross (Chris Kelly and Chris Smith) after meeting the boys at a local mall in 1991. The group's first album, Totally Krossed Out, was released in 1992 and went multi-platinum due to their singles "Jump" and "It's a Shame".
