Jermaine Dupri on So So Def’s 20 Years & Living With Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes

“I just want people to take this concert and this 20 year anniversary serious as far as it being a real black history month,” says So So Def founder and record producer Jermaine Dupri about the southern rap label’s upcoming anniversary bash in Atlanta. “It’s like 15 black artists coming together to do a show for the fans.” Artists like Da Brat, Bow Wow, Xscape and Kris Kross. Dupri also reflects on the time TLC’s late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes lived in the closet at his mom’s house in an interview with The Booth’s Joe Clair. Hey, everybody’s got to start somewhere.
