Bow Wow, one of So So Def’s biggest successes as a teenage star, is now hosting “106 & Park.” It’s a full-circle moment for the 26-year-old whose moniker was once “Mr. 106 & Park” because his videos were so popular on the show. Dupri says he’s proud of his protege’s success outside of the hip-hop arena.
“I told Bow Wow to take the job at “106 & Park,” Dupri says.”I thought he should have stopped rapping and stayed in movies because he’s more original and natural in movies. He never took lessons or none of that. He’s just a natural.”
While Kelly’s death was tough for the So So Def family, Jermaine says he’ll do his best to keep his memory alive. “We’re going to still rock and make sure people don’t forget the legacy of Kriss Kross.”
There may be no one more excited about the Family Reunion than Dupri, who says he hates to miss out on a good thing.
“I’m excited because I’ve never been. I hate not going to things so I get my opportunity this time.”
