BEHIND THE SCENES: Waka Flocka Flame, Yelawolf & More
DrJays.com’s annual “Summer Sensations” photo shoot took place yesterday at Dakota Studios in New York City.
Each year our team highlights fresh talent making a buzz online, who we predict will take it to the next level over the hot summer months.
This year’s campaign features Waka Flocka Flame (Asylum/Warner), Yelawolf (Interscope), Range (Roc Nation), Outasight (Asylum/Warner), Wynter Gordon (Atlantic), K. Michelle, (Jive Records), Phyllisia (SoBe Entertainment) and Maluca.
Check out our candid shots below and look out for the official photos coming soon!
You already know, when hip-hop and R&B acts are in the room, the NUVO is flowing! Thanks Nuvo!
