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. XXLMag.com 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
