DJBooth featured the DJ Felli Fel hit single, Get Buck In Here, early last summer. Thanks to the star-studded collaboration, Felli landed a three-single deal (that later turned into a full album deal) courtesy of Jermaine Dupri and Island Urban Music. So, what landed him that deal? The Finer Things, a Felli-produced slow jam with Ne-Yo on the hook and verses from Kanye and Fabolous. When Felli spoke with DJBooth in December he explained that after J.D. heard the song, it was a wrap. Originally, The Finer Things was also set to feature Snoop Dogg, but the rapper had to pull out because of his upcoming album. Andre 3000 got a call about it too, but when he declined, label boss Dupri kindly stepped in. Felli’s debut album, Go DJ!, is set to drop this summer.
