Last night, Jermaine Dupri kicked off the So So Def 20th Anniversary Weekend by treating his So So Def roster to an intimate dinner at a private VIP Castle Party at Summerour Studio in Atlanta.
Artists such as Bow Wow, Chris Kelly (Kris Kross), Da Brat, Jagged Edge, LaTocha and Tamika Scott (Xscape), Dondria, Bonecrusher, Youngbloodz, Dem Franchize Boyz, and Fresco Kane along with veteran music exec Michael Mauldin (JD’s father) were in attendance, as JD and staff served the guests a lavish meal prepared by Chef Michael Hebb and custom “Afroman” cake by Jaxon Pastries.
The gathering was a happy reunion, as many artists hadn’t seen each other in years – some had never even met!
“In all these years, this is the first time that Bow Wow and Chris Kelly (Kriss Kross) have ever met,” Dupri announced 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.”
“This is my way of saying thank you for helping me build the So So Def empire,” Dupri continued. “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 So So Def 20th Anniversary Concert is tonight, Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7:30pm the Fox Theatre Atlanta. Tickets can be purchased at FoxATLTix.com.
The So So Def Anniversary sponsors were VIBE, Crown Royal Black, Ciroc, Brand Jordan, UBER and Blackberry.
