Featured in the documentary are original interviews with some of Dupri’s closest colleagues and friends like Mariah Carey, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Will.I.Am, Da Brat, Bow Wow and Nelly, along with never-before-seen archival footage that sheds a whole new light on one of the most revered record labels in music.
