Jermaine Dupri kicked off the So So Def 20th Anniversary Weekend last night by treating his So So Def roster to an intimate dinner at a top secret location in Atlanta.
Dupri toasted the company’s milestone alongside his artists Bow Wow, Chris Kelly (Kris Kross), Da Brat, Jagged Edge, LaTocha and Tamika Scott (Xscape), Dondria, Bonecrusher, Youngbloodz, Dem Franchize Boyz, and Fresco Kane.
“This is my way of saying thank you for helping me build the So So Def empire,” continued Dupri. “This is a historical moment, so tonight I’m celebrating you. Sit back, relax…I’m gonna serve you. But enjoy it, because that will never happen again!”
The event served as an anniversary dinner, reunion and meet-and-greet for many of the artists. “In all these years, this is the first time that Bow Wow and Chris Kelly have ever met,” announced Dupri during the dinner. “Bow Wow is a product of Kris Kross, so the fact that we can bring everyone together like this means a lot.”
The night’s event served as a precursor for the So So Def 20th Anniversary Concert this Saturday, February 23 at the Fox Theatre Atlanta.
“Just make up your mind at the very outset that your work is going to stand for quality… that you are going to stamp a superior quality upon everything that goes out of your hands, that whatever you do shall bear the hallmark of excellence.”
