Aphilliates/Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist Drama has announced this week’s release of his eagerly anticipated new album, “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM VOL. 2.” The collection – which features the banging hit single, “Day Dreaming (Feat. Akon, Snoop Dogg, and T.I.)” – is available in stores and online now.

The ATL-based Drama is known far and wide for his legendary “Gangsta Grillz” mixtapes. “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM VOL. 2” continues in the same flowing formula as 2007’s “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM,” with all-new original material that gathers together a veritable who’s-who of modern hip-hop. Among the rap icons included are Flo Rida, Gucci Mane, Trey Songz, LA the Darkman, OJ Da Juiceman, Bun-B, Nas, Ludacris, The-Dream, Busta Rhymes, Too $hort, Lil Boosie, Yo Gotti, and Willie the Kid. Production comes from such studio luminaries as Drumma Boy, Zaytoven, and Affiliates in-house beat maker V12 Da Hitman.

“This album broadens the movement and just brings good music to the table,” says Drama. “With the albums, mixtapes and artists, I’m keeping the music alive for those who are coming up under us and representing hip-hop. I don’t want to make it too complicated. It’s just about giving everybody something to ride to and giving them what they want.”

“Day Dreaming (Feat. Akon, Snoop Dogg, and T.I.)” has proven a major Urban radio success, while the track’s companion video clip is in rotation at BET. The album’s new single, “Ridiculous (Feat. Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti & Lonnie Mac),” is impacting now at Urban outlets nationwide.

Drama can be seen spinning on two upcoming installments of BET’s 106 & Park, slated for Wednesday, May 20th and Friday, May, 22nd. What’s more, he will be DJing at T.I.’s hugely anticipated farewell concert, set for this Sunday, May 24th, at Atlanta’s Philips Arena.

Aphilliates/Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist Drama has announced this week’s release of his eagerly anticipated debut album, “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM.” The collection – which features the banging hit single, “5000 Ones” – is available in stores and online now.

The ATL-based Drama is known far and wide for his legendary “Gangsta Grillz” mixtapes. “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM” follows that same flowing formula, only with all-new original material that gathers together a veritable who’s-who of modern hip-hop.

“This album is going to bring the movement of southern rap culture, the mixtape game, and quality hip-hop to the masses,” says Drama, “where they no longer have to go to a street corner or a bodega or the Internet to know about ‘Gangsta Grillz.'”

“5000 Ones” – which features Nelly, T.I., Diddy, Yung Joc, Willie the Kid, Young Jeezy, and Twista – is currently impacting at Urban radio outlets nationwide, while the track’s companion video clip has just been added into rotation at MTV Jams. The video premiered last month on BET’s Rap City with a special episode filmed during the clip’s production. Drama recently heralded the release of “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM” by appearing as guest DJ on BET’s 106 & Park.

Drama will spend December on a whirlwind promotional tour, with stops slated in major markets coast-to-coast, including Philadelphia, Dallas, New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, and of course, Atlanta.
