Atlanta producer signs AI Twins

I was sitting in the barber’s chair getting my semi-monthly haircut when the news came through on Fox 5 — twins Derrell and Terrell Brittenum from a recent episode of American Idol tryouts were charged with forgery and theft. What was more interesting was that the twins actually used to come to the barber shop I frequent.

Hey, that’s kinda Atlanta related.

This actually isn’t the Brittenum twins first try at a television talent show. Remember 1998 MTV’s “The Cut”? The twins first got their big break on the AI precursor and had the opportunity to tour with some nationally known gospel artists such as Kirk Franklin and Kim Burrell. (The winner of “The Cut”, Atlanta native Lil’ Noah, was signed by Jermaine Dupri and was last seen in Lenox Square serving #5 combos at Burger King. No lie, y’all!)

Now these past few days, a couple of rumors have been circulating concerning the Tennessee twins, one of which was a record deal. Well, V-103 confirmed that rumor this morning — Atlanta’s own Jermaine Dupri has signed the twins to a production deal.
Who needs American Idol…just steal a car and get signed by JD.

Maybe that’s how Dem Franchize Boyz made it.
