Drama has made waves in the industry with his "Gangsta Grillz" mixtape series, three impressive studio albums and, most recently, his executive power moves. In 2003, DJ Drama distinguished himself as a business mogul by co-founding the Aphilliates Music Group. He was later rewarded when he inked a joint-venture deal with larger company Asylum Records. DJ Drama, now A&R of powerhouse Atlanta Records, not only possesses legendary prowess on the turntables, but also boasts a keen business sense. The episode displays the versatility, adaptability and work ethic needed to be an influential DJ in the music industry.
