He said the split with Columbia Records was the worst part of So So Def's history
(Yahoo!) - Music Mogul Jermaine Dupri is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his So So Def Recordings with a reunion concert in Atlanta on February 23. During a recent visit to Los Angeles, he stopped by Yahoo! to talk to The Aftermath about his history in the music business and plans for the event.
Dupri, whose roster has included the likes of Kris Kross, Da Brat, Bow Wow, Xscape and Anthony Hamilton, offered a couple revelations during the interview.
Why didn’t Xscape Members Tiny and Kandi Attend the reunion press conference?
We spoke to Tiny the morning before. I think she was in New York. I think Kandi was having her differences about being a part of this. She’s got differences with different members of Xscape and that’s something we got to work out, or they got to work out. I don’t know too much about that.
What can people expect to happen at the concert?
You [are going to] see and hear all the music. On Thursday night I’m doing a dinner. A dinner that is basically me celebrating the artists. Not the artists doing anything. I just want them to sit down and have dinner and me basically tell them, “Thank you for helping me build this legacy.”
