So, remember Mariah posted that photo – where we were so sure that she was doing a collab with Nas? Jermaine Dupri was in the studio with the, “Honey” singer as well, and now we know why! Hit the jump for the deets.

Don’t forget to check out the gallery! History of a long friendship!

These two have been friends for a LONG time, and now, it’s official. Mariah has made JD her manager – to handle all aspects of her career. Mariah let former manager, Randy Jackson loose back in May due to an American Idol conflict.
Dupri attended, A3C Hip-Hop Festival this weekend, and he made the announcement. The two have already begun to work on music – if it’s anything like my fave Mariah track, “Always Be My Baby,” then it’s going to be hot.
