DJ Drama ft. The-Dream, La The Darkman, & Too $hort - Tipper Love
When DJ Drama finally released Gangsta Grillz: The Album in December of ‘07, it got mainly positive reviews. Retaining all the elements that made the GG mixtape series so popular, it’s considered by some to be the best DJ-assembled album of all time. Looking to keep that buzz going, Drama will be releasing the sequel, GGTA 2, on March 31. Included on the album is the official version of the previously-leaked strip club anthem Tipper Love; while The-Dream was the sole artist on the unfinished version, two rappers have since joined in to throw their ones. As Wu-Tang/AMG afilliate LA the Darkman gets ready to blow his IHOP-esque stacks, 25-year pimp-hop veteran Too $hort looks to recruit her to his team, even calling her by the name her mother gave her. Put all that over a keyboard-synth beat by Tricky Stewart and you’ve got a certified strip-club anthem. Check back to the DJBooth this February when Drama and Z chop it up in an exclusive interview.
