DRAMA RISES UP FROM THE STREETS WITH DEBUT ALBUM; “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM” SEES THE RENOWNED DJ BLENDING MIXTAPE STYLE WITH ALL-NEW TRACKS; AMONG THE SPECIAL GUESTS ARE T.I., DIDDY, OUTKAST, LIL’ WAYNE, LIL’ JON, YOUNG JEEZY, YOUNG DRO, AND MORE; “GANGSTA GRILLZ: THE ALBUM” IS IN STORES NOW
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. Among the rap icons included are T.I., Young Jeezy, Outkast, Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, Young Dro, B.G., MJG, Eightball, Jadakiss, Paul Wall, Lloyd, Lil’ Jon, Pharrell, LA the Darkman, Willie The Kid, Freeway, and The Clipse, with production contributions from such studio luminaries as Don Cannon, Jazze Pha, Drumma Boy, Khao, and The Runners.
“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.

T.I was arrested and jailed just hours before he was to receive the award for Album of the Year and perform at the BET Awards today.
Clifford Harris, best known as TI, was arrested earlier today on the corner of North Ave and Piedmont Rd in the Walgreens shopping center in Atlanta. Two security attendants told SOHH.com’s “Gyant” exclusively that around 2:20 PM T.I. pulled into the parking lot, where authorities quickly apprehended him. SOHH sources also say that a total of three people affiliated with the Grammy nominated rapper were initially arrested but one was released.
Early speculation is that an undercover sting at his home that same day was set up by the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm) Department in an effort to apprehend Clifford for attempting to purchase illegal firearms. Firearms were found on the scene, which triggered the arrest on charges of parole violation.
News of the shocking arrest sent waves through the taping of the 2nd Annual BET Awards today just as Busta Rhymes and Alfamega were forced to perform their collaborative set without the main headliner.
Chris Rock had it right when he said he loves rap music but its hard to defend it. On the new T.I. album, Busta comes through on the song “Hurt”. When I first saw the title I though maybe T.I. and Busta were going to do a song about their bodyguards/friends who were shot and murdered in the past 18 months. Instead the song was about how willing each rapper was to shoot somebody down for messing with them and how skilled the rappers were with their AKs and other assorted rifles. Hopefully Bill O’Reilly and Oprah will not got a hold of this because they can make someone’s life pretty miserable. Just ask Ludacris. Here are some exceprts from their verses….
"Alota pussy niggas talk like broads love runnin' they mouth But then turn and run in they house Put the gun in they mouth, tell a nigga talk shit now You think you know the gun go POW"
"You betta check ya girl or you be so sick If the choppa leave you with no dick Or a plastic bag holdin' yo' shit Leave 6 in you, a couple more in ya bitch"
"Right now I'ma give you somethin' that a make a nigga beg please When a bullet in his mind I could feel a little breeze Drop to ya knees, see the big barrel of the chrome fifth triple grip handle in the squeeze"
"Bust so many shots gun powder probably blind y'all niggaz now (Ok, ok let's go) See you don't know really wanna feel that Mossberg blow (naw)"
