So So Virgin?

“You gotta pay!” In a move that may someday haunt their accountants, Virgin Records has tapped Atlanta’s own Jermaine Dupri to head their new “Urban Music” division. As a result, Dupri’s So So Def recording label will be “folded” into the Virgin Records stable. What this will mean for the Dirty South scene is anyone’s guess, but I’m more concerned with the fate of that awesome contribution So So Def makes to the southern approach of our fine city.

Admit it. There is no better billboard. Anywhere.

    I dunno, there was a southtrust bank billboard where the 85 and 75 merge before downtown that was covered in kudzu and the tagline was “only kudzu covers more of Georgia”

    that was cute AND inventive… Not that the SoSoDef one is without it’s charms…

    I love that billboard! It always welcomes me back when I’m coming home from the Airport.
