DJ Drama Feat. Fabolous, Trey Songz, Tory Lanez, Jhene Aiko & Chris Brown
DJ Drama's "Wishing" originally featured Chris Brown, Skeme, and Lyquin, but only Chris remains for the remix, which adds the all-star cast of Trey Songz, Tory Lanez, Jhene Aiko, and Fabolous. Like Khaled's "Hold You Down," it makes a solid argument for the R&B crew track, giving each of the singers their own verse, while Fab remains the sole rapper of the bunch, opening things up before things get syrupy and melodic.
DJ Drama Feat. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne's Dedication series was huge for Lil Wayne, but it was arguably even bigger for its host, DJ Drama, making for some of his most successful and beloved Gangsta Grillz releases to date. Now that Drama is releasing a proper album with Quality Street Music 2, he called upon Wayne for the intro, as Weezy sets the tone of the project just as Dram did on so many of his. The track also finds Wayne in prime form, recalling his work on Dedication 2. It premiered on Ebro's Beats 1 Radio show.
Body For My Zipcode
DJ Drama Feat. Young Life, Freddie Gibbs & Dave East
DJ Drama brings together a few hardened rappers from across the country for his threatening collaboration "Body For My Zipcode"-- each rapper repping a different zip code, ostensibly. Young Life is perhaps the least familiar name of the bunch, as a Compton up and comer, although he makes up the majority of the song. Meanwhile Gangsta Gibbs holds it down for Indiana, and Dave East is Harlem's own.
Boyz In The Hood
DJ Drama Feat. Meek Mill, Pusha T & Ty Dolla $ign
DJ Drama is getting to release Quality Street Music 2, his first album in four years, on July 22. "Boyz in the Hood" didn't make the cut due to Meek Mill's outstanding legal issues, but it is a truly soulful track that bodes well for the rest of the album. It features Meek, Pusha T, and Ty Dolla $ign. This track will serve Meek well in particular as he repairs his slightly injured reputation.
DJ Drama Feat. Chris Brown, Skeme & LyQuin
DJ Drama is finally ready to begin the roll out for the follow-up to his 2012 album, Quality Street Music. The ATL DJ released the first single off Quality Street Music 2 this morning, rounding up Chris Brown, Skeme and up & comer Lyquin for the smooth, bedroom-jam ready "Wishing."
Tied To The Whipping Post
King 810 Feat. Freddie Gibbs
Well this is definitely something new. Flint, Michigan metal band King 810 are releasing a mixtape with DJ Drama, titled Midwest Monsters 2, a sequel to their 2012 mixtape. Why would a signed band release a tape with a rap DJ? Features we're assuming, as "Tied To The Whipping Post" pairs the group with Gary Indiana's own, Freddie Gibbs.
Skeme Feat. BJ The Chicago Kid
Today it's our pleasure to announce Skeme's next project, Ingleworld 2, and bring you the first track from it. It's called "Khalil's Song" and features BJ The Chicago Kid.
Jeezy Feat. Rich Homie Quan
Last night, Jeezy surprised us by dropping a new DJ Drama-led mixtape, Gangsta Party. Most surprising about the release were the features Jeezy and Drama compiled on the tape, tapping all the young talent in ATL and beyond. With Gangsta Party, Jeezy's campaigning for the youth vote while still keeping his boss mentality in check.
When DJ Drama comes around with a new artist, we know to give him the necessary looks. His latest, Atlanta's Rico Richie, doesn't disappoint with "Poppin," produced by 808 Mafia's Southside and fellow ATL mainstay Squat Beats. The production is way harder than your average club beat, though still conducive to poppin' bottles and anything else in sight. Richie's main talent lies in his energy, and he delivers a menacing hook that'll stick with you for a long time: "If you ain't got no haters you ain't poppin." Believe that.
Snootie Wild Feat. Yo Gotti
Snootie Wild may have delayed his new mixtape, Ain't No Stoppin' Me, but today he makes sure the fans aren't going hungry with a new leak off the tape. The project was supposed to drop last week but now has a release date of May 14th. For "12," we hear Snootie and his CMG labelhead Yo Gotti drop bars about their favorite number, relating every day shit to that magic number (twelve). Reazy Renegade provides cold production and DJ Drama blesses the track with one of his infamous intros and outros.
Play Wit A Brick
Snootie Wild's currently working on a new mixtape with DJ Drama, which should be exciting news to his fans. It's called Ain't No Stoppin Me, and today we get the first taste in the form of the pummeling "Play Wit A Brick."
T-Pain is back in a big way. Last night, the rappa ternt sanga (who's now doin' it all) performed a stunning total of 42 songs at The Fader's SXSW showcase, which coincided nicely with the leak of a new song with OG Maco.
DJ Scream Feat. FAT TREL, Young Dolph & Project Pat
DJ Scream knows how to break records, and as a result, he knows how to put one together. We've seen him assemble crew records before, always taking the chemistry of the rappers involved into account, and providing the right production for the collab. Most recently, he brought the aggressive quartet of Que, Gunplay, Waka Flocka , and Tracy T together for "Always", and today he's supplied a similarly effective record.
Yo Gotti Feat. Jadakiss
Yo Gotti just announced that he's readying a mixtape hosted by DJ Drama, Concealed, which the rapper plans to drop randomly this week (no release date will be set). However he still wanted to let fans know what's coming, and so Gotti leaked a cut off the mixtape today, calling upon Jadakiss for "Real Rap." Both raspy-voiced MCs reminisce about the good ol' days over a soulful sample.
DJ Drama Feat. Young Thug, Jeezy & Rich Homie Quan
It looks like DJ Drama is gearing up for a new album, as he sends us over a new single to premiere this afternoon. The lead single from his upcoming effort, "Right Back," enlists Young Thug for the hook, and Rich Homie Quan and Jeezy for verses. You may recognize the production as Teyana Taylor used it for her "Dreams Of Fuckin An R&B Bitch" record which we posted last night.
Migos Feat. Skippa Da Flippa & MPA Duke
"QC Addiction" is a choice selection from Migos and DJ Drama's new Solid Foundation compilation, a special instalment in the latter's ongoing "Gangsta Grillz" series brought you to by the former's Quality Control Music imprint, colloquially known as "QC The Label". QC affiliates Skippa Da Flippa and MPA Duke guest star over production from DJ Suede.
Drop A Diamond
Lloyd Banks Feat. Raekwon
Listen to Drop A Diamond, the new track by Lloyd Banks featuring Raekwon which was dropped on Sunday, October 13th, 2013. Lloyd Banks's odds keep getting better with each new leak, and Drop A Diamond will undoubtedly improve his chances of winning. It's a worthy addition to a respectable catalogue that has seen a lot of growth since Lloyd Banks debuted in this game. We're looking forward to the follow-up.
Drama, Holla At Me
Check out Drama, Holla At Me - Privaledge, the latest from Privaledge. The track was released on Thursday, October 10th, 2013. Privaledge's chances in this game are improving with each new release, and Drama, Holla At Me - Privaledge is no exception - quite the opposite, in fact. It's a nice addition to the impressive catalogue Privaledge has been building over the years. We're definitely anticipating the next move.
Lil Wayne Feat. Chance The Rapper
Things are improving for Lil Wayne with each new offering, and You Song is certainly no exception. It's a worthy addition to the Lil Wayne's catalogue, which has seen much evolution as of late. We're definitely anticipating the next step.
Young Dro Feat. French Montana, T.I., Trinidad James & DJ Drama
Bump FDB (Remx), the latest cut from Young Dro featuring French Montana, T.I., Trinidad James & DJ Drama on the assist. It was released on Monday, August 26th, 2013. Things are improving for Young Dro with each new offering, and FDB (Remx) is certainly no exception. It's a worthy addition to the Young Dro's catalogue, which has seen much evolution as of late. We're definitely anticipating the next step.
