Conflicts

Dupri had a minor feud with famous hip-hop producer Dr. Dre in 2002. In an interview, Dupri claimed that he did more complete work on production than either Dre or Timbaland. Dre proceeded to insult Dupri on Eminem's track "Say What You Say" from The Eminem Show, namely with the lines, "Over 80 million records sold/And I didn't have to do it with ten or eleven-year olds." The song ends with a recording of Timbaland saying, "Yo, this is Timbaland/Tell him I said he can suck [DJ scratches] MY dick." Eminem and Xzibit, who were affiliated with Dre's Aftermath label at the time, also insulted Dupri on the Xzibit track "My Name."

Dupri replied to the Dr. Dre and Eminem insults with an underground track called "JD's Reply" which he leaked to the internet. On the track, he implies Dr. Dre is a homosexual and calls him a "gayass mark." Dupri states that Dr. Dre is not doing any work in the studio and other producers are ghostproducing for him and makes remarks referring to Timbaland using the same style of beats on his production. At the end of the track, he says, "If you come at me again, I'm gonna come back at you three times harder."
