By now, I’m sure that many of you have heard that Jermaine Dupree held a press conference at The Atlanta City Hall along side Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed today. Why the hell is the Mayor all involved with this? That’s a whole other conversation. His a++ needs to be working on getting these damn pot holes fixed. Anyway, Jermaine, in commemoration of SoSo Def’s 20 year musical legacy has put together a reunion / blast from the past type concert that was to feature all the hit makers and all the hit songs from those awesome SoSo Def Days. I said “was to feature” because there some folks missing from this reunion photo up above. Have you figured out who is noticeably missing?
I guess Lotocha Scott, Dondria, and Tameka are the only ladies of SoSo Def who are willing to represent because Kandi & Tiny are damn sure absent.
“Not only is it an honor to be able to stand here 20 years after our very first release in 1993 — Xscape’s #1 single ‘Just Kickin It’ – but it’s truly an achievement that we can bring everyone back together to celebrate over two decades of music excellence. We also acknowledge 1992 as the year when So So Def Productions introduced to the world Kris Kross, who had everyone JUMPING,” ~ Jermaine Dupree
Considering the fact that Xscape is what put SoSo Def on the map, it would be nothing but devine if the ladies could have reconnected at this time. I’m sorry boy’s and girls, but it does not look like it is going to happen. My spirit tells me that Xscape really has a story to tell. Only pain can keep folks apart as long as these ladies have been apart. I want to hear the whole story from each ladies perspective. I wonder if Ivy Couch will show up. lol
Let me not kill the spirit of this event and allow this Xscape stuff to overshadow how awesome of an occasion this is. Check out the rest of the pictures from the event. No tea no shade, but some of these folks don’t look like they are doing too good.
Eww chile, what happened Kris Kross
Hey Brat – Funkdafied was the first rap song I ever learned in its entirety
