Los Angeles, California â€“ May 27, 2009 â€“ Drumma Boy and Jazze Pha have more in common then just being born to prestigious musical families in Memphis, Tennessee. They are arguably two of Atlanta’s biggest hit music producers. While Jazze Pha is famed for discovering R&B powerhouse Ciara, Drumma Boy’s gift for crafting hard hitting 808 bass lines has helped propel many a lyricist to the pinnacle of the Billboard Charts. Both men have created musical masterpieces for some of the South East regions largest Hip Hop acts including Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Ludacris, Souljah Boy, Young Jeezy, T.I., Rick Ross, Bow Wow, Cee-Lo Green, Trina, Outkast and Lil Jon.
On Tuesday, June 2nd at 10pm the two multi-platinum beat makers will team up on the American Idol-esque show â€œWelcome to Dreamlandâ€ airing on BET Networks. Waiting somewhere out there for a chance to become the next “superstar entertainer” is an undiscovered talent with the stamina, stage presence and the style of today’s chart topping artists. Thousands of aspiring stars battling for a spot in the music industry everyday. If that person doesn’t get heard and seen by the right people their chance might remain just a dream. Jazze Pha explains, “The reason I got involved in this television show is to really show people how something is made from almost nothing. Not so much for the competition but to show the work in progress. This is a great stage to show people how to do it. It illustrates that the music game isn’t all glitz and glamour but it’s hard work.”
The series is the brainchild of Def Jam Recording Artist Vawn who serves as Host and Executive-Producer of the show. The colliding teams headed by Drumma Boy and Jazze Pha will compete to see who can develop the best act as the show follows new artists through an intense development process with producers, songwriters, stylists, designers and photographers in their quest for musical stardom.
“We were able to pick our own teams of a photographer, choreographer, stylist and writer and we have to build the best artist or R&B act. This is us taking some of the best talent in Atlanta, polishing it and turning it into something great,” says Drumma Boy.
