Tonight @ 618 Live on Water, 9 p.m.
For a generation of rap listeners, DJ Drama's curt, snarling voice has become an unlikely stamp of quality. DJ Drama is the longtime DJ for T.I. and a recording artist in his own right, having released three, DJ Khaled-style albums, but he's best known as the host of literally dozens of mixtapes, including many in his prestigious Gangsta Grillz series. In the last month alone, he's hosted strong new mixtapes from Meek Mill, Jadakiss and 50 Cent. For this appearance, he'll play a DJ set teasing his upcoming fourth album, Quality Street Music.
