Billboard is reporting that DJ Drama has a new gig as the A&R of Atlantic Records. Working out of Atlanta, Drama’s main duties will include working with both emerging and preexisting acts. Additionally artists will be able to go to his newly built Means Street Studios to craft their future projects.
The popular mixtape DJ had this to say about the deal:
”My first two albums as an artist were on Atlantic. And I’m now looking forward to working with Craig and Julie [Atlantic chairman/COO Greenwald] in a new capacity, helping them break the label’s next crop of amazing talent.”
Named DJ of the Year at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards, DJ Drama is currently working on his fifth studio album, Quality Street Music 2.
