Jay-Z May Leave Island Because of Jermaine Dupri

July 26, 2007 3:45 PM | Jay Z | Jermaine Dupri | Rap | Comments (0)

This past February, Jermaine Dupri officially arrived as the president of the Island Urban music division. Apparently this did not sit well with Island’s Def Jam president, Jay-Z. He is rumored to be in talks to join rival label Columbia records, in an effort to get some distance from Dupri’s kingdom under the same Island umbrella.

Hopefully that’s not the only reason, but a source says "There isn't room for two kings at one label. Why would Island bring in another power-hitter urban guy?"

It is interesting to note that Dupri’s girlfriend Janet Jackson recently left Virgin and signed with Dupri’s Island Urban, while Columbia is the label home of Jay-Z’s girlfriend, Beyonce. It’s been said that Columbia’s new co-chairman Rick Rubin has been looking to shake up the label’s A&R department. "He's creating a supergroup of staff," a second source tells Daily News column Gatecrasher. "So it would make sense that he would want Jay on his side."
