DJ Drama is gearing up to release his new album titled "Quality Street Music 2" on July 22.
During a recent conversation with HHNMÂ he talks about getting Lil Wayne on the project, it's producers, Troy Ave, 50 Cent and more.
Check out an excerpt from the interview below.
Youâve got plenty of guests on the album this time around as well but tell us something about the intro which features Lil Wayne.
I went to go visit Wayne while he was Tree Sounds during one of his visits. It had been a while since we collaborated on an album. I played him a few records and that was one of them. His eyes widened up upon hearing it and we all thought it represented Quality Street Music to the fullest, the success me and Wayne have had, and what we both have meant to each otherâs career. It was only right to start off the album like that, the bars he gave me were amazing. Itâs really that mixtape Weezy. From what I do, and where I come from, the beginning and the start is everything so it all made absolute sense to have it as the intro to the album.
So is this like a proper song with hook and everything or itâs just straight bars, like a freestyle?
Oh that will be exciting. There are rumors that you and Wayne are working onÂ Dedication 6. Can you tell us something about that?
You know, every time we get together, the conversation aboutÂ DedicationÂ comes up and since people get so excited about the idea, it goes a million miles further. I can say that it will happen. When itâs time for it to happen.
Who are some of the producers you worked with on the album?
I worked with Don Cannon, C4, C-Note, FKi, The Mekanics.
You met Troy Ave with 50 Cent a couple of days ago. How did that go? Is Troy in good spirits?
Yeah, in the best spirits he can be under the situation. We were there to help his spirits out. I went to 50âs office for an interview and I didnât know he was gonna be there at the same time but I definitely wanted to see how he was doing under the circumstances. Heâs good.
Given your good relationship with 50, it was surprising to see him not being featured on the album. Whatâs up with that?
Oh something isÂ coming, stay tuned!
