Flanked by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Jagged Edge, Da Brat, Kris Kross, Dem Franchize Boyz, Bonecrusher, Xscape, Dondria and veteran music executive Michael Mauldin, Dupri explained that the reunion concert will be a “rare moment in music” when various past and present So So Def artists and music contributors will come together on one stage for one night only.
“Not only is it an honor to be able to stand here 20 years after our very first release in 1993 — Xscape’s #1 single ‘Just Kickin It‘ – but it’s truly an achievement that we can bring everyone back together to celebrate over two decades of music excellence. We also acknowledge 1992 as the year when So So Def Productions introduced to the world Kris Kross, who had everyone JUMPING,” said Dupri.
