In conjunction with the opening of the GRAMMY Museum’s new exhibit Jermaine Dupri & So So Def: 25 Years of Elevating Culture, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Jermaine Dupri and special guests to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate discussion, followed by a rooftop after party celebrating the launch of the new exhibit.
In 1992, Dupri introduced to the world two 12-year-olds who wore their pants backwards by the name of Kris Kross. In February of that same year, their first song "Jump" was released and immediately soared to #1 on the pop charts, remaining for 8 weeks. This accomplishment labeled Jermaine as a 19-year-old wunderkind and super-producer. With over 400 million records sold to date, Dupri, a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, is one of most successful producers in the music industry. His career milestones include the release of several platinum recordings as CEO of So So Def and winning a GRAMMY for Best R&B Song. In addition, Dupri has been honored with an ASCAP Golden Note Award, given to composers and songwriters who have achieved extraordinary milestones, like receiving Song of The Decade for “We Belong Together” by Mariah Carey and #3 R&B Song of All Time for “You Make Me Wanna” by Usher. Now, twenty-five years later, after the continued success of developing other teen stars and iconic So So Def artists such as Xscape, Da Brat, Bow Wow and more, Jermaine is still on the scene and gearing up to celebrate his legacy and 25 years of So So Def.
Attendees will be able to view the exhibit from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Following the public program, ticket holders are invited to join us on the Rooftop Terrace for an after party featuring special guests, a DJ, and drink specials,
