One of the most controversial elements of the new partnership between JAY-Z and the NFL was the revelation that Jay spoke with Jermaine Dupri to deter him from partnering with the league before he eventually struck a deal with the NFL.

There has been much talk around this particular portion of the story but Jermaine Dupri remained publicly silent. However, he hopped on the radio station V-103 in Atlanta to tell what happened from his perspective and clarified that Hov never tried to get him to back out of any deals with the NFL.
