Dj Drama Defends Mixtape
The star was arrested for selling mix CDs that weren't labelled with a publisher's address in January (07). His recording studio was raided for investigation while CDs inside were confiscated.
But T.I.'s official DJ - real name TYREE CINQUE SIMMONS - insists his hoard of tapes was justified.
He says, "People need to realise how important mixtapes are to hip-hop and the music business. Just look at the careers of people like 50 Cent, YOUNG JEEZY, DJ Clue and JAY-Z. There are people in very powerful industry positions that owe a lot to mixtapes."
Simmons was released after posting bail and is currently preparing his legal defence.
