DJ Drama Says New Fabolous Mixtape, “Blows the First One Out of the Water”

Earlier today (November 5) Fabolous took to his Twitter account to say that a freestyle by none other than Trey Songz has inspired him to finish his upcoming mixtape with DJ Drama. recently caught up with Mr. Thanksgiving to get details on the tape, a sequel to their first offering, 2008’s There is No Competition.

“I think There is No Competition, Pt. 1 was almost like a cult classic Gangsta Grillz,” Drama said. “I think at the time it came out it was when the mixtape game wasn’t at a high point… but I think it was a fan favorite. If you search on Twitter, people ride to it still to this day. “

According to Drama, the new tape is sure to blow the first one “out of the water.” While he couldn’t reveal any more details just yet, the Atlanta-based DJ expects to put out the disc before the end of the year.

The Grand Hustle rep has a lot of respect for Fab, who, like him, first came on the scene on underground mixtapes. “Fab is a beast in the mixtape game,” Drama said. “He’s one of the [inspiring forces] in a lot of ways. He worked with DJ Clue, came up though the mixtapes, got a deal, put out platinum albums and is still relevant.”

In addition to Loso’s project, Drama revealed that he’s working on “something special” with Common. —Jesse Gissen
