‘You Can’t Sit With Us’: Jermaine Dupri Clarifies Perceived Diss To Lil Nas X in Favor of Mariah Carey

Published: Wednesday 7th Aug 2019 by Rashad

Despite being no stranger to getting flack for his commentary on other artists, the last few weeks have seen producer extraordinaire Jermaine Dupri in the headlines more than usual for his remarks rubbing people the wrong way.

Not even a month after being slammed for saying many of today’s female rappers sound like ‘strippers’ (click here to read more), the 46-year-old is now being criticized for a perceived diss toward Lil Nas X after he broke Mariah Carey‘s longstanding record for longest running #1 in Billboard Hot 100 history (click here to read more).

Taking to Twitter, Dupri praised Carey – his longtime collaborator – when he said:

Needless to say, the ‘you can’t sit with us’ bit rubbed some the wrong way.

After a number of X’s fans and supporters weighed in on J.D.’s comments, he took to Twitter to defend himself:

    Shut up midget because No one even sings or remembers One Sweet Day.

    • Ugggh August 7, 2019

      Go around town to random people and ask them to sing one Rita Ora song

    • Interac August 7, 2019

      I think he’s referring to ‘we belong together,’ which he was involved in.

    • Lana Del Fan August 7, 2019

      And when I ask people about old town road, most of the people say they hate it so what do you mean?

      Just because you don’t know your history and where respect is due doesn’t mean everyone else doesn’t. I remember the song extremely well. I was at a Boyz II Men concert a couple years ago where they sang it live. If this or any other #1 song from Mariah weren’t memorable, she wouldn’t be the legend she is.

      And they will forget Old Town Road quicker than that!

      YOU SOUND AS STUPID AS THE NAME YOU REP. ONE SWEET DAY — IS PLAYED AT EVERY FUNERAL AND IS THE NUMBER 1 FUNERAL PLAYED SONG IN THE WORLD. STFU. MARIAH HAS NOT 1 BUT 2 HISTORY MAKING SINGLES. NOT 1 BUT 2. ICONIC

    After Mariah herself congratulated the kids, this ignorant ninja goes and does this. Pathetic peanut head idiot that Jermaine dufuss is. I’m sorry but I’m kind of over washed up celebs flexing their last 30 cents of fame on thirst.

    He sounds bitter… who cares about records being broken ? You want your work to go through decades, age well and be remembered. He sounds like a brat. His work should speak for itself.
