Jermaine Dupri Talks Kriss Kross During ‘Power, Influence and Hip-Hop: The Remarkable Rise of So So Def’ Special

Jermaine Dupri pushed more than a few buttons last week with his comments about “stripper rappers” but regardless of how much ire he ignited the man has been an architect when it comes to the culture.

The prolific career of hip hop mogul Jermaine Dupri and his indelible influence on music over the last 26 years is explored in ‘Power, Influence and Hip-Hop: The Remarkable Rise of So So Def’ debuting Thursday, July 18 at 10:00pm ET/9:00pm CT on WE tv. The documentary special features never-before-seen archival footage and original interviews with Dupri’s contemporaries including Mariah Carey, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Will.I.Am, Da Brat, Bow Wow and Nelly.

Watch the clip below where Jermaine Dupri speaks about how he discovered Kris Kross at the mall and helped them build their style.

Here’s more about the special:

Throughout this one-hour documentary WE tv uncovers the unique stories that make up the history of So So Def, one of the very few black owned labels from its humble beginnings to multi-platinum success and stardom. Jermaine Dupri’s ability to shape Atlanta’s popular music culture becomes apparent in this riveting journey that has turned him into one of the biggest music moguls of our time. Dupri’s mission has always been to create a universal platform through music not only in urban communities but around the world. Today, he’s achieved just that.

The special is a production of WE tv in association with Entertainment One (eOne), who also produce “Growing Up Hip Hop” and “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” for the network.

Jermaine Dupri Responds To Doja Cat On Van Lathan’s Red Pill Podcast

Jermaine Dupri has put himself squarely in the line of fire after his comments about women rapper all “sounding like strippers”. Fortunately for JD, the shots fired in his direction have less chance of taking him out because he’s a small target.

That said, Doja Cat was one of many women, and some men, who aimed her semi-automatic social media choppa in his direction. Based on the way JD responded to her on the new episode of Van Lathan’s Red Pill Podcast, she must have struck a teeny-tiny nerve.
