Artists such as Bow Wow and Chris Kelly of Kris Kross (who happened to have just met for the first time last night), Da Brat, Jagged Edge, LaTocha and Tamika Scott (Xscape), Dondria, Bonecrusher, Youngbloodz, Dem Franchize Boyz all broke bread in anticipation of the upcoming festivities.
Veteran music exec Michael Mauldin (JD’s father) as well as his Mom and daughter Shaniah also attended to show support.
JD sends a toast thanking his artists for helping contribute to the history of Atlanta music.
According to celebrity photographer Thaddaeus McAdams (Exclusive Access),
The gathering was a happy reunion, as many artists hadn’t seen each other in years – some had never even met! “In all these years, this is the first time that Bow Wow and Chris Kelly have ever met,” announced Dupri during the dinner. “Bow Wow is a product of Kris Kross, so the fact that we can bring everyone together like this means a lot.”
“This is my way of saying thank you for helping me build the So So Def empire,” continued Dupri. “This is a historical moment, so tonight I’m celebrating you. Sit back, relax… I’m gonna serve you. But enjoy it, because that will never happen again!”
