New Releases: Jermaine Dupri, Now! 19, Frank Black, 'Dukes Of Hazzard' Soundtrack

Self-titled debut by P. Diddy-backed B5 also hitting stores this week.

Having blessed the careers of artists like Usher and Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri has shifted his focus toward a group of Southern up-n-comers with the compilation Jermaine Dupri Presents ... Young, Fly & Flashy Vol. 1.

Artists on Dupri's So So Def imprint — which was added to the Virgin Records family earlier this year — like Young Capone, T. Waters and Kid Slim get some room to shine alongside Southern hip-hop vets J-Kwon, Stat Quo, Pastor Troy and Bun B. Dupri highlights his own artistic talent on the collection as well, as his "Gotta Getcha," which he co-wrote with Missy Elliott, is the lead single.

Also hitting stores this week is the self-titled debut from Atlanta band of brothers B5, a group nurtured and heavily backed by another artist/producer with his own label: P. Diddy.
