DJ Drama, Don Cannon, et DJ Sense fondent l’Aphilliates Music Group en 2003. Aphilliates Music Group signe un contrat avec Asylum Records en 2006, qui est suivit par la signature du rappeur Willie the Kid.

En Janvier 2011, Les Aphilliates opèrent désormais comme une entité propre, à cause de DJ Drama qui a récemment coupé les liens avec La the Darkman et Embassy Entertainment. Son dernier & quatrième album « Quality Street Music« , sorti fin 2012, a atterri à la 15ème place du Top 200 Billboard tous genres confondus et à la 3ème place du classement Albums R&B/Hip-Hop en vendant plus de 25.000 copies durant la première semaine.

Cette année, Drama revient avec un nouvel album, « Quality Street Music 2« , le deuxième volet de la série Quality Street Music. « Wishing« , le premier single de l’album, est un titre R&B featuring Chris Brown, Skeme & Lyquin.
