“We are thrilled to be working with Drumma Boy, a highly sought after and talented producer expanding his growing empire into the area of artist management as well crossing over from the studio to the stage,” Frias said.
With musical influences that range from German composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Sebastian Bach to Jazz icons Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis , Drumma Boy’s sonic creations have earned him the “Producer of the Year” award for three consecutive years at the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Southern Entertainment Awards. He also received a nomination for “Producer of the Year” at the 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards. His contributions to both T.I.’s landmark Paper Trail album and the Young Jeezy/ Kanye West single “Put On” earned him two nominations at the 2009 Grammy Awards: Best Rap Album and Best Performance by a Rap Duo, respectively. “Put On” reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks and Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop charts. The following year, Drumma Boy was hailed #2 Producer of the Year in Billboard Magazine while the New York Times named him one of the four hottest producers “driving the city” in Atlanta.
