Most popular albums from Dj Drizzle
Cincinnati-based mixer, promoter, and marketing expert DJ Drizzle is expanding his horizons with the chart-climbing hit “Mode” featuring Young Butta. After the success with the duo’s first record, “Money Dance”, which became a top 5 song on Hip Hop Nation, DJ Drizzle connected with Butta again for a record that is swiftly gaining traction across internet and radio channels. “Mode” has also elicited the support of top DJ communities, including CORE DJs. When others are satisfied with mediocrity, DJ Drizzle aims for perfection. Drizzle knew at an early age that he had an ability to influence a party, and he used that ability to create a successful brand for himself. “I started DJing in middle school,” Drizzle tells the story of his humble beginnings. “My uncle was the biggest DJ and promoter in the city at the time, so I looked up to him.” In high school, Drizzle became the go-to-guy for playing hits and throwing parties. Though he took time off from DJing to play college football, he always returned to what he did best. It wasn’t long before people took notice and named him “Cincinnati’s Official Street DJ.” Branching out from the college party scene, Drizzle began working hands on with artists. “I opened a studio and started doing mixtapes with local artists which earned me state-to-state recognition.” Known for putting out nearly 3,000 tapes a month, he’s assisted the careers of Midwest natives like Khadijah, LoFat, and Blackjack, as well as national names like Money Jay (Konvict), JW (CTE), J Futuristic (Universal), Jarvis (DTP), Rasheeda, Gorilla Zoe, Young Chris, Mo Pain, YG, Rosco Dash, Cali Swag District, Future and Mishon to name a few. Along with club parties and mixtapes, Drizzle earned a mixing spot on FOXE 105 (Columbus, GA) while still mixing on various radio stations such as 101.1 Wiz (Cincinnati) and 103 The JAMZ (Augusta). When it comes to his trendsetting style, Drizzle explains, “I break new music they don’t hear all the time on radio. I mix in what I think is going be hot a few months later.” In 2008, DJ Drizzle was inducted into the Hittmenn DJs crew. He is also a CORE DJ. He obtained countless accolades, such as appearances in publications like Hip Hop Weekly, OZONE, The Leak, Fushion, Tru Color, City Beat, Boss, Street Fame, 24/7, Makin It Magazine, and several others. Alongside press endorsements, he also won 3rd Finger Record Pool’s DJ of the Month, Hittmen DJ of the month (6X), and received numerous Ohio Hip Hop Awards nominations including Single of the Year, Mixtape of the Year, and Best Collaboration. Drizzle expanded his resume to include A&R and promotions. His first client was Cincinnati-based label Ameer Records and their artist Young Dunny. He then worked with Beat Gang and Hush Money’s CJ Platinum, helping them gain national attention. Drizzle also organized remixes with Young Buck, Mista Fab, Young Dose, Louisiana Cash, Charlie Boi, and Young Ralph. Drizzle now consults for multiple labels from Cleveland down to Florida, putting together tours, promotions, radio play, and meetings with record executives. While strategizing his next move, Drizzle always has a higher level in mind with his vision. “I want to get more talent out of the Midwest that often gets overlooked,” he concludes. “Seeing an artist start from scratch and succeed really motivates me.” With his sights set on the top, the sky is the limit for DJ Drizzle.
