Multi-platinum rap producer, Drumma Boy has announced that he is making an attempt at unifying the city of Memphis with his latest mixtape, Welcome to My City 2.
With the rapid rise of artists like Three 6 Mafia, Yo Gotti, Don Trip, and others, Drumma Boy looks to shine light on a city he feel's was overshadowed in the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors last year.
"Welcome to My City, first and foremost, is the unification process of Memphis. It's like bringing the city together. Welcome To My City was inspired by Memphis being left out of and not being mentioned at VH1 Hip Hop Honors... I was like damn... How can Hip Hop Honors overlook Memphis?" Drumma Boy told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview.
"Many say it’s no unity here in Memephis, so I took it upon myself to create that unity through this Mixtape. By getting the hottest artist Memphis has to offer, new and established. I wanted to musically Welcome the world to my city,” he added.
Drumma attributes a lack of knowledge as a reason why many in the industry haven't given Memphis its due credit in his eyes.
“A lack of knowledge, many not knowing Memphis history, lack of indie artists from the M not traveling and repping the city worldwide, is the reason Memphis has gone unnoticed," Drumma Boy continued.
Drumma Boy is currently working on a new mixtape with DJ Paul titled Clash Of Da Titans, T.I.'s new album, 2Chainz' new album, and Chris Brown's album, along with new Jeezy projects in the works as well.
