DJ Drama Reveals 3 Artists He's Excited To Work With As Atlantic A&R

DJ Drama talks about his excitement to work with Spenzo, Que and KAP-G.

Following a January 8 report confirming DJ Drama's position as an Atlantic Records A&R, the Atlanta-based personality has revealed three artists that he is excited to be working with.

"Spenzo, who has a huge record in Chicago in the streets called 'Wife ‘Er' that’s going crazy out there," DJ Drama says in an interview with XXL. "Que in Atlanta, who just recently got signed. The 'OG Bobby Johnson' record, we all know what that is doing, but beyond that he’s got some great records. He’s got one of those voices that I’m real excited to see what the year going to be for him. And KAP-G is dope. He’s got a new record called 'Jose Got Dem Tacos.' Mexican kid, crazy, he’s coming out of Atlanta, too.

"Those three guys are probably, for me, the most exciting," Drama continues. "I really have built my career on coming up with new artists. Between Spenzo, Que and KAP-G, and as far as the label concerns, I’ve already got my hands full. I’m deep in work and looking for fresh and upcoming talent." 

Drama spoke about his work with the record company after his position as an Atlantic A&R was announced

"My first two albums as an artist were on Atlantic,” DJ Drama said, per billboard.com. "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."
