Jermaine Dupri and Swizz Beats Callabo

Slicksno.com - Swizz BeatsJermaine Dupri and Swizz Beatz have been commissioned to remix Craig Mack’s 1994 classic “Flava in Ya Ear” for a new commercial plugging Sprite’s Berry Clear flavor, reports MTV.com.

“The beauty of a remix is that you can take what somebody already did and attempt to make it better,” Dupri said. “There ain’t really the pressure of, ‘Will this record go to the top of the charts?’ Hopefully, it already did something. Now it’s like, refresh somebody’s memory or make it better.”

Dupri and Swizz are getting mad props for helping to introduce two of the hottest new MCs out, J-Kwon and Cassidy. “Just to have people say ‘JD got an artist that could possibly be the new rapper.’ That’s something you always dream about in making records, and it continues my tradition of bringing out new artists” says JD of his newest artist J-Kwon.

“I feel my situation is a blessed situation,” explained Swizz. “For Cassidy’s album to be the #1 rap album, #2 in the Billboard Top 200 under Norah Jones, that’s major to me.”

Swizz and Dupri say there may be a package tour involving acts from their labels in the near future, with Cassidy and J-Kwon as the headliners. Swizz also has new releases from Mashonda and Yung Wun on the horizon, while JD is working on his next solo album and is about to release a remix of Kwon’s “Tipsy.”

“We just did a remix with Murphy Lee, Chingy and J-Kwon,” Dupri said. “I almost put Nelly on there, but he’s on a record off J-Kwon’s album called ‘IC IC.’ I ain’t wanna overdo it.”
