Dj Cannon And Dj Drama has some drama of their own now.

DJ Drama and DJ Don Cannon were arrested last night (January 16) after police raided their office.

Both 28 year-old DJ Drama ( Tyree Simmons) and 27 year-old DJ Cannon ( Donald Cannon) were arrested in a raid on the Gangsta Grillz office in downtown Atlanta last night and charged with the making and selling of illegal CD's. The arrests follow an investigation by the RIAA of Drama's "Gangsta Grillz" operation, which include the distribution of his signature mixtape series of the same name.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Department S.W.A.T. team along with metro law enforcement raided the office and recording studio on 147 Walker Street in Atlanta and arrested 17 people including both Drama and Cannon. Authorities reportedly seized at least 50,000 CD's from the location, which will first be put into evidence before being destroyed. Authorities also confiscated recording equipment, bank statements, cash and even vehicles.

The self-proclaimed "iPod King" recently cleaned up at Justo's 10th Annual Mixtape Awards, taking home four trophies including "Mixtape DJ of the Year." Drama, who is also known as the official DJ for T.I's Grand Hustle imprint, is currently working on an official "Gangsta Grillz" album due out on Grand Hustle/Atlantic. Last year Drama also signed a partnership deal with Asylum records for his Aphilliates Music Group.

When will these nukkas learn to keep their shit on the downlow. The downlow always works with the exception of sexual escapades ( that shit ain't cool fellas). But anyway, these brothas had a good enough folowwing but nah, they had to be greedy and get a website to make some more dollas. They even had the nerve to ship these bootleg Cd's overseas to soldiers fighting in the war. Yeah, Drama 's mix tapes are fiyah, but you know anytime you open your stuff up to the masses "The Man" will always be ready to shut that shit down with the quickness. Stick to selling out the trunk of the car next time.

UPDATE: Both DJ Drama and DJ Don Cannon have been released from the Fulton County Jail, where they were held overnight on Tuesday (January 16) on racketeering charges. The two DJ's were freed on a $100,000 signature bond this afternoon (January 17). They are set for a second appearance at the Fulton County Court on January 24.
