DJ Drama Joins Atlantic A&R Team

Legendary mixtape master DJ Drama has joined the A&R staff at Atlantic Records.

“My first two albums as an artist were on Atlantic. 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.”

Additionally, DJ Drama’s newly established Means Street Studios in Atlanta will become the studio base for Atlantic artists staying in the area.
