Behind the Beats: Drumma Boy
Drumma Boy has injected the game for years now with his bottom-heavy Atlanta (where he resides) beats splashed with a tinge of Memphis (where he was born) soul. He’s laid down tracks for everyone from the Cash Money Millionaires to comeback king Usher. Now, the veteran producer is shifting gears to the business side of things: He served as executive producer on Gucci Mane’s forthcoming effort, The Return of Mr. Zone 6, set to arrive on March 22.
Mixape Daily caught up with Drumma recently to talk about his past collaborations with Gucci.
Five-Star Stellar Hits
“I Don’t Love Her” (featuring Rocko and Webbie): “That’s one of the biggest Gucci records in the club,” Drumma said of the Zaytoven-produced lead number from Zone 6. “Hands down, the club goes absolutely ridiculous.”
“Beat It Up” (featuring Trey Songz): “The label didn’t get behind it [and] never shot a video for it,” he said of the Burrrprint (2) HD track. “I always tell Gucci that was one of his biggest songs and it could have been bigger.”
“Worst Enemy”: “A lot of DJs still hit me to this day and tell me it’s one of his most substantial records,” Drumma said about the sobering State vs. Radric Davis record. “Just about his situation and what was going on and how he felt, I get a lot of reviews about that one, still.”
“All About My Money” (featuring Rick Ross): “People go crazy listening to that one,” he said.
“Classical”: “It was something different that I tried, I have the live orchestra,” he said about the Radric Davis opener. “It’s fun to bring out different sides of people. I bring out the thinking side of Gucci.”
