The Drumma Boy drum kit features sounds inspired by Memphis’ own. He is a hip hop producer based in Atlanta, GA, whose credits include collaborations with many of the most popular rappers in the South. Most notably are certainly his collaborations with T.I. and Young Jeezy.
Having a professional opera singer and a professional clarinetist as parents certainly helps pave the way to stardom. He learned a lot about music from them, and started making beats at age 14 already. It didn’t take long that he started making serious money from it. He was still in high school.
His first break out hit came in 2007. Plies’ song Shawty featured T-Pain and quickly reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. From there Drumma Boy went on to produce tracks for T.I.’s Paper Trail and Young Jeezy’s The Recession – two of the most popular rap albums of 2008.
