The legendary one Gangsta Grillz The DJ shared several photos on Instagram on Thursday (November 10) showing him working on the album in the studio. In his caption, Drama hinted that the project was arriving sooner rather than later.
“ALBUM MODE I REALLY LIKE COMING SOON AGAIN•NOW,” he wrote.

While further details surrounding the project are still scarce, I really am like that will serve as DJ Drama’s first solo album since 2016’s Quality Street Music 2which boasted performances from Lil Wayne, YOU, Young Thug and other.
The album announcement comes at a busy time for Drama. Over the past few years, the Philadelphia native has revived his beloved Gangsta Grillz series with several high-profile releases from e.g Tyler, the Creator, J. Cole and Dreamville, Snoop Dogg, Jim Jones, Symba and more.
Snowfall was a long time coming for the duo, especially given their past troubles. During a recent appearance at The Breakfast ClubJeez talked about his beef with DJ Drama and how they ultimately resolved it.
“It got real bro, it got really real,” he said. “The beef was over. Drama had someone managing him, but he was also trying to be an artist, and he kind of got in Drama’s ear about a lot of things, and just started building this toxic environment,” he said.
He continued: “I think Drama decided he should go with them because I think homie at the time had been their muscle or something, I don’t know. Something happened at the club, I can’t really say, but yeah. It got really bad over time.”
Jeezy went on to explain that over time he and Drama were able to grow and realize there were more important things to worry about.
“I love Drama and I’m really thankful for the story we got and the relationship we built because it just feels good to see your partners win,” he added.
And when it comes to winning, DJ Drama continues to tally them up. By 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards last month Drama picked up the award for DJ of the Year, his first in nearly a decade.
