Hip hop success? Check. Production cred? Definitely. Money in the bank? Well, sort of. Jermaine Dupri Mauldin has been an integral figure in the music industry for over 20 years. Although the musician spends more of his time behind the scenes these days, his success in front of the mic, and in music videos, is without question. However, Dupri has hit more hard times than anything else since coming off of the height of his fame in the 90s and early 2000s. Although he is still a millionaire, he only just barely scrapes by. In 2014, Dupri lost his mansion in his home town of Atlanta due to foreclosure. This was a low point for the artist, whose net worth had hit a high point of $60 million in the 90s. Dupri’s latest venture, a reality show on Lifetime network called The Rap Game, premiered at the beginning of 2016 and lasted for 8 episodes. The show focused on new, young talent in the rap industry. Dupri hosted the show with Queen Latifah. Despite his somewhat downward spiral and many, somewhat failed efforts to remake himself, Dupri remains well-respected in the industry.
