Music mogul Jermaine Dupri joined WPGC's Poet ahead of the So So Def 25th Anniversary "Cultural Curren$y" Tour to talk about the significance of the tour and more.

So what does  "Cultural Curren$y" mean to J.D.?

"When I started noticing that people wanted me to do this tour, I started realizing how much my artists and my brand meant to the culture," Dupri explained. "And the people recognized it as something that they wanted to pay for. " 

Dupri says the currency is represented in the love So So Def has from fans. 

"It's like having more money than I could possibly ever spend." 

The music mogul also chopped it up about what he looks for in artists and even revealed that he originally signed Anthony Hamilton back in the day.
