‘A Drink With’ recently sat down at Virgin Hotels Chicago to have a cup of tea and chat about music with legend Jermaine Dupri. Take a sneak peek into the chat. Read the full interview.

 

ADW: SINCE WE ARE AT VIRGIN HOTELS CHICAGO IN THE CASTING ROOM INSIDE MISS RICKY’S, IF ENTREPRENEUR RICHARD BRANSON WALKED IN THE ROOM, WHAT WOULD YOU ASK HIM?
JD: I was in Dubai one night and I told him that I just wanted to be around him. Actually, I asked, “Could I stay at the island?” and he told me yes. I just had to make a call and make sure nobody was staying there and he was going to allow me to stay. He definitely let Mariah Carey get Necker Island one weekend.

 

ADW: MARIAH DIDN’T ASK YOU TO JOIN?
JD: No, she didn’t bring me. But I think she told me about it. She was like, “I was staying at Richard Branson’s island.” At that time I wasn’t really up on him having his own island. I really want him to know that I admire him, and he’s definitely one of those people that I keep in my mindset for motivation. He’s definitely that dude.

 

ADW: WE’LL HAVE TO DO A PART TWO WITH TEQUILA WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR STREET SIGN.
JD: Yes. When I get Richard to bring this hotel to Atlanta!
