DJ Drama is back with his 4th album, Quality Street Music. Lets get into this review, I'll give a quick breakdown....

1. "Goin' Down" (featuring Fabolous, T-Pain and Yo Gotti)
The album starts off great where Fab spits a sick Wu metaphor like "Riding to some Wu Tang while I be lit/ Made me put shoes on the ghost walabee s***", Yo Gotti drops a solid verse as well and T-Pain doesn't come off as annoying.

2. "Never Die" (featuring Jadakiss, Cee Lo Green, Nipsey Hussle and Young Jeezy)
This is the best song on here, a nice introspective track produced by Cardiak. Cee-Lo supplies the hook, while we get introspective verses from Jadakiss, Nipsey Hussle and Jeezy.

3. "My Moment" (featuring 2 Chainz, Meek Mill and Jeremih)
A lot of people think this was the first single but its actually the second. They wating on their big moment. The verses were solid and Jeremih adds a nice hook.

4. "We in This Bitch" (featuring Future, Young Jeezy, T.I. and Ludacris)
The first single Drama released back in February, it had a video as well but it barely got any radio or video play so I doubt a lot of people heard it.

5. "So Many Girls" (featuring Wale, Tyga and Roscoe Dash)
I'm not too big on this one, I feel like I heard this track a million times, but I can see it being a single.

6. "Clouds" (featuring Rick Ross, Miguel, Pusha T and Curren$y)
Smooth joint for the ladies, Miguel kills it on the hook. This song kinda reminds me of Rick Ross "Super High" track but nonetheless its good.

7. "Chocolate Droppa (Skit)" (featuring Kevin Hart)
Kevin Hart skit with his alter ego Chocolate Droppa

8. "I'ma Hata" (featuring Waka Flocka Flame, Tyler, The Creator and D-Bo)
Typical joint from Waka with the 808 trap beat, Tyler seems out of place on this one. I understand the concept of the song but they should of replaced Tyler with someone else from Bricksquad who usually raps on these type of beats. Basically they're telling you that they hate everything so go ahead call them a hata !

9. "Real N**** in the Building" (featuring Travis Porter and Kirko Bangz) I can't get even get into this track at all. This for the strip clubs.

10. "My Way" (featuring Common, Lloyd and Kendrick Lamar)
Another stand out joint, we know how talented these three are. It's kinda of odd collaboration but the results are great.

11. "Pledge of Allegiance" (featuring Wiz Khalifa, Planet VI and B.o.B)
Money falling from the sky ! Money Money Money its about getting money. I admit it is catchy though

12. "Same Ol' Story" (featuring Kid Ink, Schoolboy Q, Cory Gunz and Childish Gambino)
Here we go with Drama just throwing random collabs together... This song looks good on paper but its decent, nothing special...

13. "We in This Bitch 1.5" (featuring Drake and Future)
This is the remix, they should of just combined this with the original instead of making 2 different tracks.

14."My Audemars" (featuring Meek Mill, Birdman and Gucci Mane)
The title of the track should tell with this about... We heard the same verse from these guys a thousand times already. Money, cars, haters, etc...

15. "Monique's Room" (featuring Fred the Godson)
This came out last yr on Fred's DJ Drama hosted "City OF God" mixtape. This basically Fred's version of Drakes "Marvin's Room", but he puts his own twist on it.

Overall the album has its good moments but it suffers from the same thing that happened to DJ Khaled's latest album, I feel like its just too many random artist thrown together but this album is slightly better than Khaled's in my opinion. The album is inconsistent as it loses steam towards the end. Most of collabs look better on paper, and the lack of replay value. On the flip side Drama releases a sold album with something on there for everybody. Check this album out. The albums isn't terrible at all, its a enjoyable listen. Drama adds another solid album to his collection. Gangsta Grillz !

Take one look at the track listing, features, and production team... then listen to the album... then tell me it didn't sound exactly as you guessed it would. Truth is albums like this are almost always the same. Not to say I went into the album with a pre-determined opinion, but like I said. It's way too predictable. DJ Drama doesn't rap, and he doesn't produce any of the beats. Besides rounding up a bunch of today's trendy artists (Wiz Khalifa, Tyga, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, etc.) i'm not sure how he even contributes to his own album, lol. Anyways to the music.

No sense in wasting your time with a track by track explanation.. it doesn't deserve one. There are some bright spots on the album, one being the lead single "My Moment".. some nice guest verses by the re-emerging 2 Chainz and the MMG breakout Meek Mill. T-Minus contributes the best beat on the album in my opinion, reminds me of "I'm On One". Other than that it's just a big cluster. One of those dust collector albums that you spin once and never go back to (just like Drama's previous 3 albums, and every DJ Khaled album).

My advice: save your $10 and go get Skyzoo's "A Dream Deferred" album instead.

I had high expectations for this album and for the most part Quality Street Music didn't let me down. However there are a few tracks i did not like. Tracks 8, 14 & 15 are not that great.

I bought this mp3 album due to the artists on it and the price; it was well worth my money and has current songs that are being played on the radio.

This was a free download and not a really good one. Mediocre is what comes to mind. What can you expect for free?

I don't even have to listen to this nonsense. When I saw the track list of weak rappers that was enough. Where did he get the title quality street music? More like redundant commercial garbage. It's not quality, it's not street and it is by no means music. PERIOD!!

I really enjoyed the DJ Drama cd. As with any cd you start to have your favorites though I did find the first half of the cd much better than the second half. He has quite a collection of artists featured on this album and for the most part they deliver well. I would say it's a good cd overall, especially compared to the crap that has been coming out lately. This cd has about 6 to 8 songs you will enjoy and about 2 that are complete trash with the rest being average. Overall a well done cd, and DJ Drama has produced some great beats on this one.

More like "Repetitive Street Music" or "Quality Boring Music" right here. I enjoyed DJ Drama's previous release, Third Power, but this time around it is more Southern oriented and repetitive. The production features the typical names but nothing really stands out or distinguishes itself from the rest. The album features a wide array of mainstream and Southern artists, solidifying a casual listen, delivering nothing meaningful or worth mentioning. If you enjoy the South, this is for you...if not, then move on.

It has a few nice songs. It is hard for me to give 5 stars to current Hip Hop. So much of it is cookie cutter and sounds the same. Given that this is multiple artists makes it worth buying.
