Jermaine Dupri’s is set to have a documentary about his life, career and record label. WEtv announced that the film will profile his career, which spans over 25 years. So So Def will be highlighted, featuring the likes of Kris Kross, Jagged Edge, and Bow Wow. The tv special will detail how Jermaine brought the Atlanta sound into the mainstream for people to pay attention to the region.
The documentary will showcase never-before-seen footage from the label’s 25th Anniversary concert. Multiple interviews will bring the perspectives of everyone at the label, and Dupri’s story of how he opened for Run-DMC will be highlighted.
So So Def produced timeless hits and Jermaine was able to do it all his own way. Hopefully this film shows the ins-and-outs of those involved. The producer/rapper explained why they are creating this.
“Of course, we got special guests. This is Atlanta. We gotta do what we gotta do. This is a one-time thing […] We don’t get but one 25th anniversary so we gotta go out with a bang.” He said.
