New Island Urban Music president Jermaine Dupri has made Jagged Edge the first signing of his administration, Billboard.com has reported. Dupri previously worked with Jagged Edge when the group was signed to his So So Def label. A new Jagged Edge album is expected this year; it will be the follow-up to last year`s self-titled album for Sony Urban/Columbia, which has sold 268,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Meanwhile, sources say an Island deal with rapper Hot Dolla, which the artist already announced on his MySpace, is still being finalized. Dupri stepped down as president of urban music at Virgin in October 2006. At Virgin he was responsible for signing Dem Franchize Boyz and OutKast member Big Boi`s Purple Ribbon imprint.
