Gangsta Grillz The Album
Label: Grand Hustle/Atlantic
The beginning of 2007 saw DJ Drama make headlines after being arrested on felony charges under Georgia's Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act for allegedly selling counterfeit CDs -- aka mix tapes. The end of the year sees Drama's debut album showing why he's the biggest down-south mix-tape DJ. While his guest list has stars from every region, the musical direction stays below the Mason-Dixon line. Gems consist of Andre 3000 with another WTF verse on "The Art of Storytellin' Part 4" and the energetic strip club anthem "5000 Ones," featuring guests like Nelly and Diddy.
