Jermaine Dupri and Blink 182's Travis Barker Team Up For New Clothing Line

  Hip-hop mogul Jermaine Dupri has joined forces with former Blink 182 member Travis Barker for a new venture into the clothing industry.

After stepping down from his position as president of Virgin Records' urban music branch, the Grammy award-winner was recently appointed as the president of urban music at Island Records. Now Dupri is snatching headlines again as he partners with Barker's clothing line, Famous Stars and Straps, to release a co-branded line of gear titled Famous Stars and Straps and So So Def, which will be available starting this spring.

Dupri and Barker (currently of the group +44) both came up with the concepts for the brand and created designs for the line, which made its debut at the Magic fashion and apparel trade show in Las Vegas.

The limited edition line will carry a variety of items including hoodies, t-shirts, hats, belts and buckles which will be sold at over 200 specialty and boutique shops nationwide beginning in April.
