After launching his record label, So So Def, in 1993, Dupri collaborated with Kris Kross, Usher, Nelly, and Mariah Carrey, helping them gain international stardom. He’s since sold more than 400 million albums and worked with Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, TLC, Aretha Franklin, Ludacris, Alicia Keys, and Bow Wow, among others. He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 2019, the Grammy Museum honored his label’s 25th Anniversary.
