Last night in Atlanta, Jermaine Dupri celebrated the 20th anniversary of his label So So Def with a much anticipated all-star concert. The show featured appearances from Dupri's large stable of artists, including a Kris Kross reunion, performances by Jagged Edge, Bow Wow, Mariah Carey, Usher, Da Brat, Ludacris, and Monica, and a surprise appearance by Jay-Z.
We caught up with the rapper to talk about the simpler things in life. When he's not orchestrating reunions, where does he relax in the ATL? And, where the good booze at? Durpi took a minute to tell us the best spots to eat and drink in his hometown.
What is your favorite place to eat in Atlanta, and what do you order there?
I've got a couple, but it probably would be Café Sunflower. I’m vegan, and they have a great menu of different things that I can order. I get these vegan quesadillas from there and these vegan enchiladas and ravioli. They got so many different things that you can have that are vegan. And they got this strawberry shortcake that’s incredible.
Where is your favorite place to drink in Atlanta?
In the studio. [Laughs.]
And what do you drink there?
A little bit of everything. I got a full club in the studio, so whatever we can have to drink behind the bar.
