About Jermaine Dupri
In 1992, Dupri introduced to the world two 12-year-olds who wore their pants backwards by the name of Kris Kross.  In February of that same year their first song "Jump" was released and immediately soared to #1 on the pop charts remaining there for 8 weeks. This accomplishment labeled Jermaine as a 19-year-old wunderkind and super-producer. With over 400 million records sold to date, Dupri, a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame is one of most successful producers in the music industry. His career milestones include the release of several platinum recordings as CEO of So So Def, winning a Grammy for Best R&B Song, and being honored with an ASCAP Golden Note Award, given to composers and songwriters who have achieved extraordinary milestones. Now, twenty-five years later, after the continued success of developing other teen stars and iconic So So Def artists such as Xscape, Usher, Da Brat, TLC, Bow Wow and more, Jermaine is still on the scene and gearing up to celebrate his legacy and 25 years of So So Def. www.sosodef.com
