In a recent interview with XXL, Push teased the Gangsta Grillz mixtape, though, at the time, he didn’t indicate that it was part of Drama’s series. He is working on the mixtape in tandem with the album, and revealed that he is doing so in order to embrace creative freedom.
“What I’m trying to do is restore the feeling in every aspect of this subgenre of music,” he said. “And just of this cloth, of this taste level. I’m just trying to make people realize how viable this is. To show people that I can’t do what you do, but you definitely can’t do what I do. I have to show those differences. That’s the whole premise behind the mixtape.”
