Jermaine Dupri Signs 'Aunt Jackie'
Remember the video
of a group of aimless negroids shaking around in Harlem that I posted a while back? The clip has landed creator Jason Fox a spot
on Jermaine Dupri's new label, Island Urban.
From the press release:
...Created by 21-year-old Jason Fox, the Aunt Jackie took root in the streets of Fox's native Harlem, and has gone on to become an online sensation, with over 150,000 plays on myspace and over 275,000 views on Youtube.
Now, with a following of thousands of kids already dancing to the song in clubs, at basketball tournaments and in the streets, "Aunt Jackie" is ready to take over the summer. The old-school flavored track has been released to urban radio, and a professional video is in the works, aimed at supporting the already massive buzz and attention the homespun video has garnered.
"I think were seeing the life of hip-hop coming back with songs like aunt Jackie," says Dupri. "It's the kids acting like kids used to act when I was growing up, and I love it because, to me, hip-hop has been too-cool -for-school lately. Its time for a change."
In other So So Def related news, Dem Franchise Boyz were spotted washing cars and selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts on the side of I-285 for gas money last month.
I keep telling ya'll, when my Green Bean Casserole song/shuffle drops I'm going to take the industry by storm. 106 & Park here I come!

I am not Clive Davis and to be frank I probably don't want to hear the shit anyway. You should also know that I take my slow, precious time responding to email. And sometimes I don't respond at all.
