How Insane Jermaine Became the Go-To Entrepreneur for Business, Promotions, and Anything Under the Sun

The long-standing prejudice against black people has always been a major social issue that needs to be tackled. Many individuals and organizations these days have taken a progressive stance towards the issue, championing equality for all. Growing up as a minority, Jermaine Fyre, more famously known as Insane Jermaine, stood above prejudice and social injustice his entire life. However, through his keen entrepreneurial instincts, he rose above all the challenges and became one of the biggest entrepreneurs and promoters the world has ever seen.

Insane Jermaine is an entrepreneur by blood. As a young boy, he was surrounded by several entrepreneurs in the form of his immediate relatives. Born in Hackensack, New Jersey and moving to Atmore, Alabama, he knew that his destiny would always involve the business world.

In 1981, Insane Jermaine became a witness of the KKK as they were marching and lynching in Mobile, Alabama. At the time, he had no idea what prejudice or hate was until he moved to Alabama. He attributes much of his childhood to bouts of fighting with people from all walks of life, just like his relative Boxing Champ, Evander Holyfield. 


Every day was a battle for Insane Jermaine, and so he sought to champion positivity and equality as he mastered his business craft along the way. Throughout his life, he always knew that he would have a shoulder to lean on, especially when it came to his elders in Atmore, Alabama. He asked his father, Willie Clem Frye, AKA Huck-a-buck, for an allowance.

His father would simply give him vague instructions that led to Insane Jermaine working in the Sugar Cane Fields to earn his money. For the rest of his life, he would develop a remarkable work ethic, to which he thanks his father for teaching him. His father would then give him two of his policies to follow: “Work and earn for yourself” and “Don’t ask anyone for hand-outs.” These two rules would be embedded throughout his entire business career, carving the path for the talented entrepreneur’s massive success.

Eventually, a long-time friend of Insane Jermaine introduced him to a Master P. demo. Through his keen business mind, Insane Jermaine immediately knew that he had a hit song that would put the South on the map. He then contacted his friend, DJ Gregstreet, who had a Rap Battle Contest show called “The 9 at 9 Jam It or Cram It.” Winning the rap battle would give a contestant an entire summer of airplay in Mobile, Alabama.

Naturally, when Insane Jermaine let Master P. join the contest, he would become the only contestant to get 10 votes out of 10, beating out the champion and earning a primetime radio spot in Mobile, Alabama. Still unsatisfied with all the success he had earned, Insane Jermaine wanted to prove himself further as a talented executive producer. So, he talked to his cousin, John Earl Frye, owner of Frylink Tires and Club Chick-a-dee in Atmore, Alabama.

His cousin said that he needed an artist to promote the club and produce in the club. Insane Jermaine took the opportunity and got to work with some of the biggest names in the music industry, such as The Last Mr. Bigg. This opportunity garnered a lot of buzz for Insane Jermaine, officially putting him on the map as one of the biggest promoters and entrepreneurs in the industry.

Overall, Insane Jermaine has had a remarkable career and an extremely interesting childhood story. Throughout the years, he has built a long-standing reputation of success, and he deserves every bit of credit for his pristine work ethic, passion, and determination. He has proven time and time again that he has leveled the playing field despite already playing at a particular disadvantage in the industry that he dominates.
