DJ Drama drops ‘Quality Street Music 2’ featuring Chris Brown, Young Thug, Lil Wayne, Mac Miller and more

Tyree Cinque Simmons (known as DJ Drama) has just dropped Quality Street Music 2 and it is absolutely fantastic.

The record, which is DJ Drama’s first release in four years, is packed with features from some of the biggest names in the rap game now. This makes it a must listen for any hip hop heads.

The first Quality Street Music featured collaborations between Common and Kendrick Lamar as well as production from the likes of Hit-Boy. Unsurprisingly, this made for an impressive record.

The sequel is no different with Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Usher and T.I. featuring — this doesn’t even cover half of the star-studded list that grace tracks on this album.

There is also input from Mac Miller, Freddie Gibbs and Young Thug. It seems Drama has a very cool friend circle and it has enabled him to produce another stunning record.

“I cut your head off and wear it, I break your legs get to steppin’.”

Intro” gives listeners a powerful opening track to gorge. It’s not often tan intro makes a play for one of the best tracks on an album but this one does.

The track features Lil Wayne (with production from Swiff D) and has a big instrumental and a prominent beat that Wayne flows over aggressively for two minutes.

The lyrics are fierce as Weezy kills it with lines like the following:

“I cut your head off and wear it, I break your legs get to steppin’.”

Wishing” is a more RnB influenced track full of fire from Chris Brown, Lyquin and Skeme. The video is a good watch too — the artists protest their innocence to delightfully attractive female police officers.

Lesser known WDNG Crshrs offer one of the best features on “Audible” — a track with a more relaxed vibe. This song has Sunday morning written all over it.

A simple beat (along a piano) provides the musical backdrop for WDNG Crshrs to smoothly drop bars, which they do so gracefully. At two minutes long, this song definitely needs a hit on that repeat button.

There are many features on this album (in fact, some tracks even have four) but Mac Miller’s effort on “Camera” is probably my favourite.

It bears similarities to tracks from Miller’s latest release GO:OD AM, full of relaxed and meaningful songs like “Ascencion.”

From start to finish this album is quality and has it all. There are upbeat numbers, laid-back vibes as well as harder-hitting tracks and more soulful RnB tunes.
