DJ Drama Named New A&R of Atlantic Records
Looks like the Gangsta Grillz will be taking over Atlantic Records, well atleast the A&R Divison. DJ Drama has been named the new A&R for Atlantic Records. Drama is responsible for a lot of popular mixtapes under his Gangsta Grillz Mixtape Series such as “Dedication 5”, “Dream Chasers 3” and “She Got Game”. Now he’s in charge of bringing talents to the label in hopes of fulfilling their dreams. The new position is in Atlanta so the Philly born Atlanta native won’t have to relocate and can work right out of his current Mean Street Studios. Here’s what Atlantic Records Reps and Drama had to say on the matter.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Drama to his new role at Atlantic,” said label Chairman & CEO Craig Kallman in a statement. “One of the most accomplished DJs and mixtape masters, he brings brilliant instincts and consummate skills to our A&R team.”
“I’m extremely excited to embark on this new chapter in my relationship with Atlantic Records,” Drama said of his new venture. “My first two albums as an artist were on Atlantic, and I’m now looking forward to working with Craig and Julie [Greenwald] in a new capacity, helping them break the label’s next crop of amazing talent.”
On behalf of the entire ThatsEnuff.com team, we would like to congratulate DJ Drama on this new accomplishment. Here’s his past feature on our “The List”
