Jermaine Dupri is prepping for his 20th anniversary all-star concert and it seems that just about all of the old SoSo Def gang is ready, willing and able to participate in the festivities.
Dupri made a grand announcement about the upcoming show, which is scheduled for February 23rd in Atlanta, as he stood beside Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed on the steps of Atlanta’s City Hall.
Former and current SoSoDef artists, friends and supporters all took part in the press conference, but many were left speculating about Xscape, the girl group that once featured Kandi Burruss, sisiters LaTocha & Tameka Scott, and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle?
And although he’s actually had his own share of issues with Jermaine, that didn’t stop Bow Wow from trying to call out Kandi regarding her decision NOT to reunite with her former group members for the SoSoDef Anniversary concert.
Jermaine recently commented about Bow Wow’s lil rant.
Jermaine was asked about Bow Wow’s rant by Sister 2 Sister, and he responded:
I don?t feel anything at all [about those comments]. I?m not even thinking about that. Do you know how crazy this concert is? For me to even think about that is a waste of my time.
The approach of getting 13 artists all in the same place and to perform all of these hits is so much more positive than I have to put into that.
That little talking, that stuff means nothing to me.
In other words… ‘shut up Bow-Wow we’ve got work to do‘!
Dupri goes on to explain his decision to host a So So Def Anniversary show after all these years, stating:
I?m at a moment in life where I had a couple of my friends pass away and it made me feel as though maybe I should take advantage of this opportunity while I?m here. All the artists are here, well and healthy.
You never know what the 21st anniversary will look or feel like.
Are you looking forward to seeing almost all of your favorite SoSo Def artists under one roof?
