This is my bad.
I didn’t know my guy Jermaine Dupri was a vegan and has been one for a couple of years!!!
If you don’t know who JD is, go ahead and do your googles right now, but this is one of the music industry legends that shaped my life.
Literally. Songs of his and songs that his fingerprints are on guided me through years, moments, and situations.
Jermaine Dupri Mauldin is a record producer, songwriter and rapper that got his start at something like 12 years old as a backup dancer for the legendary group Whodini in the Freaks Come Out At Night! video and its been about that life every since.
I happened to see this How Hip Hop Went Vegan piece online today and JD was one of the first people to pop up. #mindblown
Check out this interview with MONREALITY where he starts talking about the vegan thing around the 2.30 mark.
..and he’s stayed on that path and in that zone for reals.
Plenty of pictures on the gram with him still living that life too! Check them out below and make sure you follow him everywhere and be on the look out for the new video with Bow Wow, “WYA?”
