DJ Drama and Don Cannon Arrested and Charged With Music Piracy

DJ Drama and fellow Aphilliates DJ Don Cannon were arrested in Atlanta on Tuesday and charged with racketeering, following a raid on the group’s Gangsta Grillz recording studio. According to Fox 5 News in Atlanta, a Fulton County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team executed a search warrant at the studio, located at 147 Walker St. in downtown Atlanta. The investigators seized as many as 50,000 mixtapes and arrested the two men on charges of making and selling counterfeit CDs. Authorities also confiscated, as evidence, all of the group’s computers, recording equipment, money and financial documents, as well as their cars. Fulton County booking records show that Cannon and Drama are being held without bond.
