Rhythm Roulette | Drumma Boy
For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal went to Atlanta to link up with acclaimed producer Drumma Boy. With a rich classical musical history in his family, Drumma Boy entered the realm of hip hop production at a young age. But earning enough money on his own with placements with Jeezy, Gangsta Boo, T.I., Gucci Mane, and more proved that a college degree isn't the only way to a stable career. Now he has his own company called Drum Squad which includes a production company, film company, and record label. He continues to also give back to his community with charities for colleges and the homeless. We stepped into Wax N Facts with Drumma Boy to walk out with Bar-Kays' Animal, Gideon's I Gotta Be Me, and The Rough Guide To Psychedelic Cumbia. Drumma Boy takes a liking to the cumbia record and goes to work. The end result is something you and your parents could get down with at a Latino block party.
