In the world of hip-hop few music executives have more influence than DJ Drama. His “Gangsta Grillz”? compilations have helped define this decade’s Southern rap explosion. He has been instrumental in the careers of rappers like Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne. He appears on the cover of the March issue of the hip-hop magazine XXL, alongside his friend and business partner T.I., the top-selling rapper of 2006. And later this year DJ Drama is scheduled to make his Atlantic Records debut with “Gangsta Grillz: The Album.”?
WTF? People are being arrested for making mixtapes. This has gone too far already.
