About Jermaine Dupri

In 1992, Jermaine Dupri introduced to the world an 11 and a 12 -year-old 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, winning numerous awards including a Grammy for Best R&B Song, and being honored with an ASCAP Golden Note Award, given to composers and songwriters who have achieved extraordinary milestones. Now, over twenty-five years later, after the continued success of developing other teen stars and iconic So So Def artists such as Xscape, Usher, Da Brat, TLC, Bow Wow and more, Jermaine is still on the scene and celebrating his legacy and more than 25 years of So So Def. http://global14.com/
