The festivities kicked off with an intimate dinner at a top secret location in Atlanta with his artists, including folks like Bone Crusher.  He told everyone, “This is my way of saying thank you for helping me build the So So Def empire. This is a historical moment, so tonight I’m celebrating you. Sit back, relax…I’m gonna serve you. But enjoy it, because that will never happen again!”  

The staff served the guests a lavish meal prepared by Chef Michael Hebb and custom “Afroman” cake by Jaxon Pastries.

Bow Wow, one of Jermaine's top selling acts (and biggest mouth pieces) was there to rep for So So Def.

Chris and Bow Wow were later seen greeting one another when Jermaine revealed that it was their first time meeting!  “In all these years, this is the first time that Bow Wow and Chris Kelly have ever met. Bow Wow is a product of Kris Kross, so the fact that we can bring everyone together like this means a lot.”

1/2 of Xscape (LaTocha and Tamika Scott) were on hand.  While we know that LaTocha will be on "R&B Divas" next season, we can't help but miss seeing Kandi Burruss and Tameka "Tiny" Harris in this pic.  Oh wells.  We're SURE Kandi won't be showing up for the concert as there's still mixed feeling between her and the Scott sisters.

Can you believe Da Brat is 38?  You have to admit the chick hasn't aged much since her debut.
