DJ Drama and the G-Unit have been talking about collaborating since before 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo were working on their T.O.S. album. A full group Gangsta Grillz hasn’t solidified yet, but Drama did get a chance to lock in with one-third of the Queens music murderers.
“You hear my mixtapes on ThisIs50.com and you hear them with DJ Whoo Kid,” Yayo explained. “I wanted to go out of my element this time. It was like, ‘Who should I go to? DJ Drama.’ Atlanta is poppin’, New York City’s poppin’, everywhere is poppin’ — but I had to go to Gangsta Grillz. [Mastermind DJ Drama] paved the way for a lot of artists. He’s the hottest DJ to go to. Shout out to Whoo Kid, but I did this one with Drama this time.”
