PHILADELPHIA native DJ DRAMA covers the current issue of ROLLING OUT Magazine!!!
Here are some interview interludes:
On creating record label GENERATION NOW:
On LEGACY vs LONGEVITY:
“It really ain’t about being remembered. I still want to be here. [There is] nothing wrong with paying homage and paying respect and being able to have a legacy. But to me, it’s something you love or you want to do. I definitely want to be remembered, but I still want to be here for as long as possible. Even if they don’t know my name or know what I’m doing at that moment, [it’s good] to be a part of something that they care about. Just imagine now some people don’t even know what Gangsta Grillz is but I know [my fans are] listening to Lil Uzi and their kids are listening to Lil Uzi. That right there is something to be able to smile about. That’s somewhat more important than being remembered. Being a part of the culture. It’s really an obsession. Hip-hop has created so many opportunities and jobs and changed so many lives. I love the fact that I made Dedication 2 and Trap or Die. But it’s not about what you did at the time … it’s about going forward.”
