Yeah, about yesterday's item about Jermaine Dupri's getting the axe from Def Jam...

And how it might hurt Sachse resident Dondria Nicole's bid for the big time...

Uh, backsies!. Says business blog Business Sheet:

"As it turns out, rumors of Dupri's departure are also 'completely untrue' according to Universal Music Group, Island Def Jam's parent company."

Also: On his deathbed, Dupri will receive total consciousness. So he's got that going for him. Which is nice. --Pete Freedmam

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
