    Rap mogul Jermaine Dupri will celebrate his groundbreaking record label So So Def with a multi-city anniversary concert tour. 

    Dupri told The Associated Press on Monday that The So So Def 25th Anniversary Cultural Curren$y tour will feature himself, Xscape, Da Brat, Jagged Edge, Bow Wow, Anthony Hamilton, Bone Crusher, Youngbloodz, Dem Franchize Boyz and J-Kwon. 

    The 11-city tour starts Oct. 14 in Washington, D.C.

    Dupri founded the label as a teen. Under his guidance, So So Def Recordings helped develop and promote the entire genre of Southern hip-hop in the 1990s. It rose to success through music acts including preteen stars Kriss Kross and Bow Wow, female rapper Da Brat and R&B group Jagged Edge. 

    Dupri, a Grammy winner, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in June.
