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."
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
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.
