How Platinum Producer Majestic Drama Recruited French Montana for “Delta Hill Riders” (Shine on) Remix
Abdoulaye Diop, a platinum-selling music producer better known as Majestic Drama, increased worldwide acknowledgment collaborating with Fetty Wap and Wale’s “Mathematics” in 2017. Securing his place among major players in the industry, Drama garnered prominence in 2019.
With 2020 getting close to the half way mark, Majestic is adding to his all-star resume’ in a pretty noteworthy way. His signature heavy bass sound now accompanies French Montana and will be on French’s upcoming album.

“The original idea for “Delta Hill Riders (Shine on)” came from Meetsims (who now goes by XYZ) of coke boyz. He made the song back in 2014 and sent it to me to critique. Fast forward 2019, we have old town road blowing up and creating this door for country trap music. I called Meetsims from LAX and told him it was time to seize the moment. He sent me the vocals and I redid the beat. I have a natural talent for marketing. Twitter was the ideal platform for me to create controversy and get people to react. Thus I became this old white man singing country rap while using the n-word. I changed my profile picture and the tweets spread like wildfire and soon after Freddie Gibbs contacted me. Freddie Gibbs wanted to do a remix but at the time it was too early in my opinion. I wanted to take the chance to ride the wave ahead and give us (Meetsims and I) a chance to do this as a team.
Around new years, French Montana calls Meetsims to fly to Vegas. On the phone, i give Meetsims the idea to get French Montana on the record for a possible remix and the rest was history.”
Clearly Majestic Drama has more connections than many of his peers if he can make a single phone call and get French Montana on the track! Evidently he has a knack for crafting records every step of the way.
