Dupri learns about real-world social changes from the ever-changing topics of social media threads he's engaged in.

In 2013 at Washington, D.C. Chapter's event, "Business, Beats & Inspiration: An Indie Guide To Making Money In A Digital World," digital strategist Bryan Calhoun interviewed producer/songwriter Jermaine Dupri, winner at the 48th GRAMMY Awards of the songwriting category Best R&B Song for Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together." Dupri engages his own Global14 community and regularly uses Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter. He says his "ghetto analytics" from the ongoing conversation means, "I can find out everything that I need to know without asking the regular people that I used to ask."
