Atlanta’s Fox Theatre hosted one helluva party last night. Celebrating 20 years in the game, Jermaine Dupri threw a special anniversary concert for his famed So So Def label, and he had plenty of big names on the guest list. In addition to So So Def alumni like Jagged Edge, Da Brat, Xscape, Bow Wow and Kris Kross, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Mariah Carey, Usher and, perhaps the biggest surprise guest of the night, Jay-Z, were all among those who RSVP’d.
Highlights include Jigga and JD’s performance of their 1998 hit, “Money Ain’t a Thang,” Usher, Lil’ Jon and Luda rocking the house with “Yeah!” and Kris Kross reuniting for “Jump” — over two decades after its initial release. There’s no denying that So So Def still know how to put on a show.
