Jermaine Dupri to Kick Off 25th Anniversary So So Def Tour This Fall

2nd August 2018 | Category: Concerts

Rap fans, you better prepare for a spectacle this fall because Jermaine Dupri has just announced a multi-city anniversary concert tour to celebrate his record label So So Def.

Tickets for all dates can be found here and you better prep in time for the rap and hip-hop event of the year.

We simply couldn’t believe this huge news and the starts announced to hit the stage besides Dupri.

The likes of Xscape, Da Brat, Jagged Edge, Bow Wow, Anthony Hamilton, Bone Crusher, Youngbloodz, Dem Franchize Boyz and J-Kwon will perform on his 25th Anniversary Cultural Currency tour that kicks off on 14 October in Washington.

After hitting Baltimore, Nashville, Atlanta, Memphis, Charlotte, Detroit, Greensboro, Washington and New York, the tour ends on 2 November in Los Angeles.

While announcing the 11-date tour, the rapper-producer refferd to it as a “blessing.”

“This is a perfect timing” he said. “This is the 25th anniversary of a black-owned record company that put out multiple artists and enough artists to do our own tour. We’re blessed basically.”

Dupri founded the record label in 1993 and So So Def Recordings had helped develop and promote the entire genre of Southern hip-hop in the 1990s. Projects by Da Brat, Xscape, Jagged Edge, and many more all contained chart-topping songs. Dupri was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year and in 2005 he earned a Grammy for best R&B song in 2005, “We Belong Together”, performed by Mariah Carey.

The most anticipated date is definitely 21 October in Atlanta, Dupri’s hometown. Dupri’s goal is to remind people how influential So So Def Recordings have been to the culture of hip-hop and R&B music in the past 25 years. He explained the tour is titled Cultural Currency because artists are connected to the label just like cultural currencies- people of great value to the world of hip-hop.

“I feel like with my artists and even myself, people don’t pay enough attention to how much we mean to the culture and how much So So Def meant to breaking the South and making people pay attention to Atlanta,” he added.

Pay respect to this amazing event and buy your tickets in time.
