yeah....and you tell me what artist wouldn't wanna be on that mixtape? I think what it is comin at is how the artist gives tracks to dj's....the company heads came together and said no, these are not yours to give out. They want in on our mixtapes too, they say its like a billion dollar business...they are trying to send a message.Yungblackgifted2 (12:56:05 AM): they want in....a nickel bag get sold in the park, they want in....a mixtape gets sold on the corner, they want in

How i feel about the situation...had to borrow it, im not typin it over

Wow This Is Sad Its There Mixtapes

U Can Get Arrested For Selling Ur Own sh*t

WTF Thats There Music
I think you have to have the record companys permission to use the track on the mixtape....not the artist...but then they gonna have to start arresting every fu*kin dj around...Ti better bail them dudes out...the cops want dudes to go back to doing some violent sh*t to get paid instead of trying to do this rap thing...

That "FOR PROMO USE ONLY" sticker ain't fooling nobody. That's like me selling dime bags with free weed in it. The contents is still illegal and I'm still getting charged.

Believe it or not if you sign a deal with J Records, you are not supposed to be hustling another project on the side. That is a serious breach of contract. Anything (musical) that artist does while signed to that label, has to be directly approved by the label. Not just that, managers also have to get a cut. If these people aren't getting paid, and your dumb a.ss is on the front of a Gangsta Grillz CD, you are going to get got by the label... However, I don't believe that it is illeagal.

I think the reason they are being arrested is because some of their CD's have the hottest new singles mixed together...or R&B jams or whatever... Even if the artist leaks you that material, it is illeagal to sell for profit without proper liscensing. It always has been.

What you guys should be hoping for is that since they got bread, they can get good lawyers.

I don't know if any of you are old enough to remeber this but Luke went to war with the music industry suits back in the early nineties.

This looks like, with the right backing, could be another situation like that.

Either way it goes, you all should find a way to support the efforts because this was our only way to make a buck off of the industry that has gotten rich off of our style. The way they did it is criminal too. They have r*ped us with these contracts for years.

When it is your time to be heard, stand up and scream at the top of your lungs.

Hate to make this a race issue but white people are hilarious. Solve SOME REAL CRIME!
Don't be ignorant. God, people will do and say anything to make something a race issue. Believe it or not, not every cop or task force agent in Atlanta is white. Stop living in the 1950's.

That means all the upcoming artists that sent their sh*t to Drama to work on and paid their cash, is sh*t out of luck! They seized all studio equipment and CD's and are going to destroy of all it.

man this is nothing new,they been doing this sh*t for years

drama and cannon should be a lil more smarter then this sh*t tho,i mean u never hear about clue or kayslay gettin caught doing this sh*t.

the reason why its illegal to sell mixtapes is because the dj's(and artist most of the time)don't own the music.this sh*t has been happening tho,mixtape spots get shut down all the time,drama and cannon are just high profile.

Since i've worked with Drama personally, been to that studio...and actually know wassup a bit about the situation.

The Feds have no idea that these guys are the DJ's Hosting the Mixtapes, recording the songs with the actual artists, and so on...They think these 2 havej ust been downloading songs off limewire/kazaa/some p2p software and reselling them. They dont "Get" What it is Drama is doing lol. ANd its actually NOT the feds dealing with them. Its Police in RIAA Jackets trying to cover it up...Drama and Cannon been saying "fu*k the Police" on the radio alot lately and basically they got hit. My manager called me this morning to lemme know wassup...Im still waking up from the call right now lol. And basically the entire time they were packing sh*t up, throwin cuffs on Drama and Cannon, Drama kept screaming at them..."These are not BOOTLEGS, I WORK WITH THE ARTISTS, THESE CD'S CAN BE BOUGHT AT BEST BUY!!!"...lol

And yeah its true. All Gangsta Grillz cd's are actually Cleared. He gets them official/Cleared so much to the point that if u came to GA, you would see his mixtapes in bestbuys/circuit city/and FYE's all up and down GA(Not just atl).

He'll be aight once they start to question him, and actually understand what it is he and Cannon do, they'll be out.

For the record, they DO record the Gangsta Grillz series....The only time they dont work with the artist is when its an old song...but if u do the gangsta grillz mixtape, and you pay for Hosting(U can get the cheap package and u just get their drops an signatures over your tracks) then you will record in their studio, or at my job. I Know that for a fact.


SO their good, just gonna have to wait until someone actually understands what theyre trying to explain.
