DJ Drama is setting up to feed the streets again. The Philly-hailing hip-hop mainstay is gearing up to drop his first mixtape of 2016 and unveils the tracklist for it today (July 8). Dram pulls no punches and enlists all the heavy hitters for this one. Everyone from Lil Wayne and Young Thug to Freddie Gibbs and Dram’s Atlantic Records signee Lil Uzi Vert are on the album. Crooners like Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and August Alsina team up on “Onyx” while Southern standouts like T.I. and Thugger come together on “Can I.” And of course it doesn’t hurt that he’s got Wayne right on the intro. The album looks like it’s got heaters already.
The mixtape king recently walked fans through his Gangsta Grillz for an episode of Respect The DJ presented by Global Spin. In the episode, Drama takes fans back to the days when he first fell in love with the art form.
“I remember being into music at a young age, both my parents had huge record collections,” he said. “I went to go see Juice in the movie theater and it change my life; the character DJ GQ. Just watching him up there, cuttin’ and scratchin’, it was so exciting the DJ battle at the time and I was like, that’s looks fun.”
