Florida’s DJ Smallz has revealed that he will be releasing an official version of his popular mixtape series Southern Smoke in conjunction with producer Drumma Boy.

“I’m starting to work on the Southern Smoke album right now, and I’m doing it with Drumma Boy,” he revealed at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in an interview. “The concept of the album is Chronic 2001 for the south, and the future of southern Hip Hop artists. Instead of Dr. Dre, I got Drumma Boy ya feel me?”

“I always mess with the independents, salute to the independents. I’m an independent myself,” he explained. “I’m a deejay and we got that hungry entrepreneurial spirit. When you see DJ Smallz, there’s like 50 people behind the DJ Smallz symbol right here and that’s the truth.”
