Together they are the Durtty Boyz, capturing the attention of young people in Atlanta with a focus on empowering young men.
Ask any rap fan to name the one of the most talked-about DJ’s right now, and the name Drama is sure to spew out of their mouth. Introducing the rap world to platinum-selling Def Jam artist Young Jeezy and ATL sensation Young Dro as well as keeping fans satisfied with exclusive pre-albums from Lil Wayne, Young Buck, Bun-B of UGK, Eightball & MJG and Project Pat with his Gangsta Grillz mixtape series, Drama has supplied stirring street soundtracks to every block, back alley and trap house like a pirate radio station on disc. Born and raised between West Philadelphia and the city’s Germantown sections, Drama moved to Atlanta to attend Clark Atlanta University. A fan of DJ culture since seeing Omar Epps’ character DJ Gee Q on the big screen in classic hip hop film Juice, Drama first stepped behind the ones and twos after copping his very first mix tape- DJ S&S’s Old School Part 2 during a trip to New York City with his older sister as a kid. He found his calling and knew it. Early on, Drama created a local buzz selling tapes in his high school and naturally brought his hustle with him when he relocated to Atlanta and began peddling mix tapes on campus. Offering a catalog that included reggae, instrumental and neo-soul mixes, his bread and butter came when he dropped his first southern-based tape Jim Crow Laws- his fastest-selling tape at the time. DJ Drama has deejayed for T.I. and he still maintains close ties to the King of the South.
Born & Raised In Harlem, NY and with early influences of DJ S&S, DJ Clue, & Funkmaster Flex, J1began DJing when he was 13 years old. Upon graduating at Morehouse College with a degree in Marketing, he began DJing part time.
Determined to be one of the hottest young DJs in Atlanta, it was often difficult as he was known more for promoting parties and events. J1 took that to his advantage and began co-promoting all events he was hired for.
He soon began spinning for some of the top promoters and venues in the city. In The Spring of 2007 he appeared as a guest DJ on BET’s Rap City. During the summer of that same year J1 made his radio debut mixing on the Hot 107.9 Mega Mix. He then became an intern for the Assistant Program Director Bill Black, and was later promoted to an air mixer.
J1 is currently the mix show coordinator as well as a programming assistant. Your can catch him on the air Tuesday & Thursday at 5pm for the 5 o’clock traffic jam as well as Monday 2am – 6am.
