As a hip-hop head, of course, I was pleasantly surprised when Jermaine Dupri popped on stage. However, many people in the stadium seemed to be confused. I heard many whispers of “who is that?” which is a shame. But those who knew understood the importance of the moment. For those who may not know, Dupri is a Grammy-winning producer and artist who has created some of the biggest hits for Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Usher, Lil Bow Wow, Jagged Edge, Janet Jackson, TLC, and many others.
