Jermaine Dupri says Jay-Z urged him NOT to sign the same NFL deal he just signed; ‘That might not be a good idea’

The backstabbing continues over Jay-Z’s new deal with the NFL that opens the door for the aging rapper to become part owner of a NFL team. Music producer and DJ Jermaine Dupri, 46, was surprised to hear about Jay-Z’s lucrative deal with the NFL, because the 50-year-old rapper urged him not to sign a similar deal last year.

Music producer Bryan-Michael Cox was the first to reveal Jay-Z discouraged Jermaine from signing a similar deal with the NFL. Bryan-Michael, 41, who produced hits for Usher, Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige, made the comments during Isaac Hayes III’s DASH radio podcast last week.

“We are talking about a guy who singlehandedly called – he picked up the phone and called Jermaine to tell him not to do it,” said Cox, who added he attended a meeting with Jermaine and the NFL last year to discuss a social injustice campaign. “[JD] took a beating for saying the same shit,” said Cox.
