DJ Drama Net Worth $12 Million
DJ Drama entered the entertainment industry with DJ Sense and Don Cannon, founding the record label Aphilliates Music Group in 2003. Later, the label signed a co-operation deal with Asylum Records, yet still has the status of an independent label. Willie the Kid was the first artist who signed a contract with Aphilliates Music Group. Then, the number of artists was growing, as a result adding decent sums to the total size of DJ Drama net worth.
In 2006, DJ Drama appeared in the drama film “ALT” (2006) directed by Chris Robinson. In 2007, he debuted as a solo artist, releasing his first studio album “Gangsta Grillz: The Album” (2007) which contained two well known singles “5000 Ones” and “The Art of Storytellin’ Part 4”. Guest appearances were landed by many artists, including Freeway, Lil Wayne, Lil Jon, Willie the Kid, T.I., Nelly among others. The debut album reached second position on the Billboard Top Rap Albums Chart, which proved that DJ Drama is a promising hip hop artist.
Two years later, the artist released his second album under the same title “Gangsta Grillz: The Album (Vol. 2)” (2009). However, it couldn’t reach such success as the debut album, attaining only 4th position on the chart. The following albums “Third Power” (2011) and “Quality Street Music” (2012) respectively reached the 6th and 2nd positions on the Billboard Top Rap Albums Chart in the USA. Currently, he is working on an upcoming studio album titled “Quality Street Music 2”, and the mixtape “Midwest Monsters 2” (co-created with King 810) which are going to be released in the near future.
To add more, DJ Drama has released six singles, 10 music videos, eight mixtapes, and landed a number of guest appearances which have also increased the overall amount of his net worth, and popularity. It is also worth mentioning the fact that the artist was nominated for the Best Hip Hop Award as the DJ of the year. DJ Drama was the official DJ of the artist T.I., who worked under the Grand Hustle/Atlantic record label.
Finally, in the personal life of the artist, he is married to the video vixen Summer Walker. Rumours were flying that the two were going to divorce because DJ Drama had an affair with a 21-year-old woman and offered her $10,000 to procure an abortion. However, DJ denies this rumour.
