  • I Am A Hater

    Drama……why do you promote yourself on your blog? You ain’t no DJ!!! You suck!

    And yes I AM A HATER!!!!

    HAHAHAHAH!!! You know what i say gets to you becuz you know it’s the truth!!

    Go make another Gangsta Grillz mixtape!!

    Oh and how the hell are you gonna make a Gillie Da Kid and Lil Wayne Gangsta Grillz? You sound like flip flopper!!

    P.S. Both Lil Wayne and Gillie Da Kid SUCK ASS!!!!

  • Mr.Me

    lol. Slay got his goon squad on here. Yo Drama put that Young Dro “My Girl Got A Girl” song in the bangers section. How you rides wit Grand Hustle yet there aint no Dro or Country King bangers on there? What good wit their Gangsta Grillz mixtapes? Dro’s albums comin in a few weeks. Get on ya job nig. Oh an all the hate means you finally comin up in the game.

  • Enlightened

    DJ DRAMA – CONGRATULATIONS and you are killin that mixtape world but – I’m sorry, your dude Willie (in my opinion) is not sickenin unless you mean it in a bad way. Not the first artist to jump off a label anyway. Maybe a member in a 4 man group.
    It’s not that he can’t rap,but it’s his “swagger”. It’s been done too many times. He sounds like this whole era of Bump J/Papoose/etc. niggas that fell off the fake Jay-Z family tree.
    I’m from the Midwest and I hate to hear niggas with deliberate East Coast style (unless they can elevate it somehow). Willie, if you see this, find yourself. Be yourself. Rep this midwest shit cause we don’t sound like nobody else. We’re the perfect melting pot of everything. Find that.

  • god

  • big remo

    Anybody else who leaves a fuckin hatin’ ass comment needs to shut the fuck up and get money. The nigga Drama is fuckin killin the mixtape scene right now and all I see is hate,hate,hate from a bunch a faggot ass niggas/bitches who are either are Kay Slay dick-riders or niggas who just hate because he puttin’ the South on and he building his foundation. Yall dumbass even bothered to comment on his blog page like cryin bitches!!! Drama, the Chi got love for ya, good lookin’ out on that Bump J mixtape, too! APHILLIATES, YOU FUCK NIGGASSSS!!!!

  • I Am A Hater

    >>who just hate because he puttin’ the South on and he building his foundation.

  • Fernando

    Willie the Kid?? Really? That is some top notch talent right thurr. Maybe Ill listen to it. Or maybe I will use it to clean up dog shit on the street. Not sure

  • Fernando

    Im suprised Big Remo can type and suck Drama’s dick at the same time.. Thats TALENT. Unlike Drama. Is Willie the Kid Gille’s retarded brother? Or just a bitin ass faggit?

    …LL Cool J Signs Seven-Figure TV Development Deal…

    wtf is this seven figure shit yo… heads is starving an whatnot

  • concerned hater

    i’d like to see you step up your dj’ing ability frankly… you have a couple crowd pleasing ‘scratch techniques’ using 2 copies of the same record to stagger a voice is neat… but what happen to tha turntablism.. you aint no dj, you a disc jock…

    now, meanwhile, your blog is one of the worst, i know 8 year olds who rep harder , posting on the daily and what not, always with something to say..(1), and yet all you can do is jock your own discs..

    not a dj!

    xxl’s blogs is hot, but you’re bringing like half a match to the game, you dont even have a surface to strike it on (2), internets abuzz with information, yet somehow you seem to have created a black hole of sorts where space and time seem to coalece into a bland pudding of insignificance….
    hiphop dj = turntablist
    disc jock = disco = you = sven vath = any dork with a computer = “blend” dj

    i’ll give you “blend” dj status, ok, take that… you’ll need it.. enjoy the success

    (1) and no “he speaks with his hands” bullshyat.. if so you should post a daily scratch routine like whatshisface does to rare breaks… but you don’t

    (2) i see you rubbing a match all up on that scraggly ass brillo beard

  • concerned hater

    ps. the blends is weak

  • PeterPopofff

    Yo fuck all you fuckin hating ass racist fucks with this cracker shit y’all just mad homeboy doin big thangs and you punk ass donkeys cant! This is gangsta shit and his the muthafuckin thanks he gets. Drama IS tha MIXTAPE KING and y’all better know dat!


    whats up with the replacementz??????



  • kuttboy2

    i cant take this shit all you cats on here that hate on drama cuz u on somebody need to step back an take a look at the whole game. ever wonder why there are so many rock groups that make big money in the industry and become successful? you ever see them on blogs hatin on other cats thats doin what they doin or tryin to do? no you know why they support each others in this industry. we hate on each other yet we are the minority in this country and in this industry. the only reason we are so familiar with this rap game is because of the technology that allows access to alot more people. back in the day when artists were on the chitlin circuit they supported each other. do you think you would ever hear b.b. king hollering “fuck chuck berry, that nigga stealing my chords” thats how they spread the blues and r-n-b music. now if somebody aint in your camp they shit aint up to par. when you got cats like drama in the position he’s in you should pay home and ask for advice and a blueprint so you can put your voice out there. ever here blink182 beefin with greenday? shit no they makin plans to do music together and go on tour. and our dumbasses talkin about drama is a faggot, why u wont come to philly, can he please get off the south dick…. what if drama and his camp team up with kay slay and his camp……..WOW!!!!!

  • driven

    This is just priceless how people have so much time on their hands that they spend it trying to act like gangsters on the internet. You are not convincing anyone by postin threats on a blog site. Also for those of you who spent a whole paragraph on how you hate the apphiliates: you are doing nothing big in music so you choose to hate on someone like willie the kid who is actually lyrical? I think you need to go back to your little weak ass young joc records and quit showing distaste because you are ENVIOUS. period

    To all ya’ll haters in the field, its real. So all ya’ll gum poppers out there hatin on my boy Will really should consider stopping. I mean you ain’t gone post where you really hang at because you studio, ain’t nobody who is really a G going to be blogging some hatin BS like what I’m reading. Yo this Raps Assassin Album coming soon Street Rep Ent. Easy Targets Vol. 1 Just like all ya’ll faggots. Post where you be posted at no matter the city and watch how you get dealt a raw deal. All ya’ll haters have no credability in the streets or anywhere else. Bullets are really hot and ain’t none of ya’ll fags Robocop. Matter of fact a mauthafu**a who has time to blog on the net probably doesn’t even own a gun. Ya’ll hatin on my boy and can’t f**k with him on the mic or in the streets. So for future reference please know who your talking about before speaking because /one shot can be a life long connection to your brain/ now small faggot fragments are drippin down gutter drains/ got the weather forecast screaming high chance of bloody rains/ no sunshine but blue stains from stainless bangs/ smoke clears and he’s still here/ Raps Assassin bringing up my nigga rear/ and for all ya’ll hata’s full of fear/ quick to type but slow to come to the clear/ talkin all gangster, a bunch of internet queers.
