Multi-Platinum producer Drumma Boy is knowing for churning out some of music's biggest hit records. Coming fresh off the release of his “Still Can't Believe It” single, the Memphis native continues to provide rejuvenated sounds for the entire world to vibe to. His work with music legends Outkast, Chris Brown, Gucci Mane, and Killer Mike to name a few, have landed him the title of one of the “most influential producers in Hip Hop”.
I had the pleasure of catching up with the hotshot for a candid conversation to discuss his new release, forthcoming album, and new imprint Drum Squad Records. From beginning to end, it becomes clear that Drumma Boy was born to leave a lasting impact on the music business. Check it out below!
Drumma Boy Interview
What was the inspiration behind your new “Still Can't Believe It” single and visual?
Drumma: I have been wanting to do an album with all the people I have worked with throughout the years for some time now. I’ve always been inspired by DJ Funkmaster Flex how he did his 60 minutes of Funk tapes, DJ Drama, and DJ Khaled.
What was it like working with another mega-producer like Scott Storch as you are both known hitmakers?
Drumma: It was incredible working with someone like Scott Storch! He had so many ideas and seeing him play the piano like that in person was definitely insane. It was like Lebron and MJ being able to play together lol.
What drew you to wanting to put Derez De'Shon on this track? Have you guys ever worked together before?
Drumma: Day 2 of the cook up session with Scott Storch at his house, Steve Lobel (Scott’s manager) said Derez was in town and asked did we want to work. It was an automatic “let’s do it”. When I first heard “HARDAWAY” I knew we would work one day with me being from Memphis.
What do you feel like makes your sound stand out among the rest of the established producers?
Drumma: I think being from Memphis and having all genres of music under my belt, definitely helps me continuously create new sounds and styles that haven’t been done before. I always called my music Gumbo as it’s a mix of this and that. I always make the best out of what I have and I think that is what keeps me inventive and creative.
Talk to me a little bit more about your Drum Squad Records company and what sparked that?
Drumma: Drum Squad Records is my label side where I sign artists that I believe in. I develop them, complete projects for release, as well as producers and songwriters. Seeing Russell Simmons build Def Jam with LL Cool J, Puffy (Badboy), and Jay-Z (Roc A Fella), inspired me. I have always wanted to have a label and I feel like the one thing I have not done yet is bring out a successful artist under my label.
Are you working on releasing an album anytime soon? If not what can we expect next from Drumma Boy?
Drumma: I plan to release the Drumma Boy & Friends album in December 2020! The first single “Still Can’t Believe It” featuring Derez De’Shon was released on 6/19 on all music platforms! Check out my last album My Brother’s Keeper, and follow me on IG, Facebook, & Tik Tok @drummaboyfresh!
