Jermaine Dupri Presents SoSoSUMMER17 Tour featuring the winners and cast members from #TheRapGame is coming to Ovens Auditorium on June 10.
In 1992, Jermaine 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 and in doing so labeled Jermaine as a 19-year-old wunderkind, super-producer.
Now, twenty five years later after the continued success with helping to develop other teen stars (Xscape, Usher, Da Brat, TLC, Bow Wow and more) Jermaine is back on the scene with his So So Def Brand, adding his signature stamp not only to the music of today’s teen culture but television and multi-media as well.
“The Rap Game” debuted January 1, 2015 on Lifetime and after three seasons the series has introduced to the world 15 young stars and crowned two winners – Miss Mulatto (season one) and Mani (season two). The third season of “The Rap Game” is currently airing on Lifetime Fridays at 10pm/9c, with the season three-winner set to be announced on April 7th 2017.
Produced by Intuitive Entertainment, The Rap Game is executive produced by Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins, Ted Iredell, Perry Dance and co-executive produced by Adam Schor. Lifetime’s Mariana Flynn, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway Grogan also executive produce in addition to Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere from Flavor Unit, and Jermaine Dupri.
By rolling out one of the biggest teen summer celebrations, focusing on the youth, community and the teen culture at large, Jermaine Dupri Presents: SoSoSUMMER 17 will be the summer destination for families, kids, teens, and community organizations. Each night Jermaine will introduce the stars of tomorrow as they set out on their 20-city, summer journey.
