DJ Drama has revealed the details behind G-Unit's first-ever Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Speaking to MTV.com, he said, "A couple of days after G-Unit dropped their Elephant in the Sand mixtape [two weeks ago], I got the call from 50 [Cent] and he was like, 'Drama, what up? It's time to do this G-Unit/ Aphilliates Gangsta Grillz.' He's really going heavy on the ThisIs50.com Web site, and he was saying basically it's time to get G-Unit hot in the South. What better way to do that than to do a Gangsta Grillz? Not only from a South aspect but from a quality street-music aspect.
He continued, "Me and Whoo Kid talked the other tapeday, Fif and G-Unit are getting songs together, [my artists] Willie Da Kid and La Da Darkman are getting some songs together. I reached out to the King and told him it's a special project; I need him to get busy. We're gonna go in."
To those that don't know, "The King" is T.I., the supposed King of the South. He'll be contributing to the project along with Fiddy's aforementioned DJ, Whoo Kid.
"Look out for some skits," Drama explained. "Whoo Kid is a jokester. I'mma bring some personality to the table. We're gonna have fun with it. Let the mixtape game come back to life. It's been over a year since the historical [RIAA] raid, and the mixtape game is still here. That's what we're out to prove. 50 is a monster in the game, I'm a monster in the game. The combination is gonna kill the streets."
G-Unit's Gangsta Grillz mix is expected to drop in early-to-mid-April. It'll be available for a free download on ThisIs50.com and GangstaGrillz.com.
