This week on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, we welcome the undisputed king of mixtapes, DJ Drama, to the Upper West Side! A longtime friend (as well as previous guest on the Lil Uzi Vert episode), Drama is promoting his new album Quality Street Music 2, available July 22nd! He talks about his journey from Philadelphia backpack rap fan to more-worldly student at Clark Atlanta University to leader in Atlanta's movement to the center of hip-hop in the early 2000's. We discuss working with Jeezy, T.I., Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Pharrell, Little Brother, R. Kelly, and so many others, his early days in Atlanta playing clubs and poolside at Evander Holyfield's mansion, and what it means to team with this generation's own rockstar, Lil Uzi Vert!
