DJ Drama says he wants to work with Ice Spice, Brent Faiyaz, and more on future Gangsta Grillz projects.

DJ Drama says that he hopes to work with GloRilla, Stove God Cooks, Ice Spice, and more on future Gangsta Grillz projects. He discussed his hopes for upcoming collaborations during an interview with XXL.

“I’ve had the conversation with Stove God [Cooks],” Drama revealed to the outlet. “I would love to do a project with him. I think a GloRilla Gangsta Grillz would be fire. Maybe even like Ice Spice or maybe Lady London. So many dope females out there.”

He continued: “Obviously, a lot of people have always wanted the EST Gee Gangsta Grillz. Don’t get me started, so many people. I mean, would love to do a Brent Faiyaz Gangsta Grillz. It is endless. I think that’s one thing that’s dope and potent about Gangsta Grillz. It’s a platform and cross-generational.”

Drama has teamed up with numerous high-profile artists in recent years for Gangsta Grillz projects including Jeezy, Snoop Dogg, Symba, French Montana, NBA YoungBoy, Jim Jones, and more. Perhaps most notably, Drama worked with Tyler, The Creator on his Grammy-winning Call Me If You Get Lost in 2021. He also just dropped his latest studio album, I’m Really Like That, back in March. For that effort, he teamed up with Lil Wayne, Tyler, The Creator, Lil Baby, Jeezy, Lil Uzi Vert, Offset, T.I., Rick Ross, Jack Harlow, and several more. In addition to the list of artists Drama says he wants to work with, he recently also confirmed that he's got a project with De La Soul in the works. Appearing on The Breakfast Club, he remarked, “De La Soul’s coming to streaming. I can’t be more excited. And we got a Gangsta Grillz coming! Little sidebar.”

Elsewhere in his interview with XXL, Drama discussed his relationship with Lil Uzi Vert and what it was like seeing the rapper get sober. He described the experience as being "eye-opening."
