Gangsta Grillz Radio with DJ Drama

BET Hip Hop Awards 2014 Red Carpet Presented By Sprite

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.
