DJ Drama Conflict Results In Name Change

DJ

Drama may be one of the hottest mixtape DJ’s in the game, but underground and

mainstream rap fans may soon know Drama by a different name when his new album

arrives in stores this summer.According

to Drama, he will have to assume a different name when he releases his major label

debut, Gangsta Grillz: The Album, due to a conflict with another DJ."I’ve

got a little situation with my name," DJ Drama revealed to AllHipHop.com.

"There’s some DJ in Chicago that wants to say that he’s DJ Drama. He made

a phone call to my record label, and we’re being held up on that. I don’t want

anybody to be shocked if the album comes out and it says DJ Dramatic or DJ Dram."

The

name change comes in the aftermath of Drama’s arrest in January for selling mix

CDs, due to the popularity of his Gangsta Grillz series of mixtapes.The

popular DJ was charged with reproducing recorded material for sales, in violation

of Georgia’s Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organization law. Both

he and his partner Don Cannon were arrested and released on $100,000 bond. The

case is still pending.Despite

having to assume a different moniker, Drama isn’t worried about slipping under

the radar."Everybody

knows who DJ Drama is and everybody knows what I do," he said. "I might

have to do my Notorious B.I.G. thing, but it’s okay. I guess I picked a good name

by calling myself Drama. Shout out to the white boy in Chicago that wants to give

me a harder time. Just watch what I do."DJ

Drama’s Aphiliates Music Group Music Group release, Gangsta Grillz: The Album,

is scheduled to be released in June.
