Instead of going the traditional route and releasing one single leading into an album, Drama will instead release standalone singles featuring the best of up-and-coming rappers, beginning today with Nasty. The legendary DJ, producer, executive, mogul, and cofounder of Generation Now has maintained an enduring career by consistently identifying and championing the voice of tomorrow.
Drama says, “I’m excited to release music that brings it back to the streets and showcases all the exciting new talent out there. Look out for some real bangers and surprise guests coming soon.”
DJ Drama built a foundation for his now-legendary Gangsta Grillz series. Moving countless physical tapes and tens of millions of downloads, his discography is highlighted by classics such as DJ Drama meets T.I. & P$C, Jeezy’s Trap or Die, Lil Wayne’s Dedication 2, Gucci Mane’s The Movie, and more. Simultaneously, he assumed DJ duties for T.I. on tour, becoming a knockout presence on stage.
Additionally, he unleashed a string of influential official major label full-lengths, beginning with Gangsta Grillz: The Album in 2007 followed by Gangsta Grillz: The Album (Vol. 2). Meanwhile, 2011’s Third Power spawned his first Top 20 hit Oh My feat. Fabolous, Roscoe Dash, Wiz Khalifa. A year later, Quality Street Music bowed at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 and Top 3 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart powered by the hits We in This Bitch feat. Young Jeezy, T.I., Ludacris, Future] and My Moment [feat. 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Jeremih] which went Top 10. Most recently, 2016’s Quality Street Music 2 boasted collaborations with Post Malone, Mac Miller, Young Thug, and more, as well as his highest charting hit Wishing [feat. Chris Brown, Skeme, & Lyquin] which peaked at #77 on the Hot 100 and was RIAA-certified Gold.
