::DJ Drama, Don Cannon Comment On RIAA Raid::

DJ Drama and DJ Don Cannon are preparing to defend themselves against charges brought on by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last week, after the duo’s Atlanta offices were raided by a Swat Team on Jan. 16. DJ Drama, born Tyree Simmons and DJ Don Cannon are the owners of Aphilliates LLC, the company that created and produces the popular Gangsta Grillz mixtape series, which has featured top artists like Sean “Diddy” Combs, T.I., Young Jeezy, Jim Jones and others. Aphilliates offices were raided by a 30-member Swat Team from Fulton County at the behest of the RIAA. Police seized over 50,000 CDs, as well as computers, recording equipment and cars. Officials charged DJ Drama and DJ Don Cannon with racketeering. DJ Drama, 28, has hired Atlanta defense attorney Ed Garland, of Garland, Samuel and Loeb Trial Attorneys. “This is an attempt by the government to paint an image of those involved in Hip-Hop as criminals,” DJ Drama told AllHipHop.com in a statement. Don Cannon, 27, has retained Janice Singer and Don Samuel of Thompson and Singer, P.A. “Our track record for success has made us some of the most sought after music producers and DJ’s in Hip-Hop,” DJ Don Cannon said. “We are looking forward to being exonerated of all charges and continuing to build our brand.”
