Jermaine Dupri (@JermaineDupri) & Royce Rizzy (@roycerizzy) on Juan Epstein

“JD came by to talk about a new dope artist he has named Royce Rizzy who you can peep right here. However, the bulk of this 75 minute Juan Ep is spent discussing the amazing career of JD. We start out discussing his role as a kid on the Fresh Fest tour, continue through the formation of Kriss Kross, stories of how he had TLC before they were on LaFace, Biggie and Da Brat talk, and much much more. Great guy. Great episode.”
