Jermaine Dupri has worked with dozens of incredibly talented artists, including Mariah Carey, Bow Wow and Destiny’s Child. And now, the producer/ songwriter wants to get his hands on rapper, Iggy Azalea.
“She needs somebody like me in her life,” Dupri said during The Wendy Williams Show when asked about his thoughts on the female emcee. “I tried to sign her from the beginning. I called her. I sent her a tweet. I think she thought I was trying to get at her because she is fine.”
He continued, “I sent a message and said ‘yo, I like you, I think you’re dope, I would love to sign you’ … She gave me the ‘send my manager, hit my manager.'”
Jermaine added that the Australian native tried to “shine me,” however, the “Fancy” rapper’s response “didn’t make me not like her. I think she’s very talented.”
When Iggy first came onto the scene, the beauty was working with rapper, T.I. However, the two had a falling out and the two eventually cut ties. “It took a bit of a red stop,” T.I. said on New York’s Hot 97 back in September.
Now, Iggy is busy being a fiancé to Lakers player Nick Young and we hope, working on new music.
