Terence Cook,[1] better known by his stage name Drama, is an American Dirty South rapper, best known for his 1999 hit single "Left, Right, Left".

Musical work[edit]

Drama signed to Atlantic Records in 1999. He then released his debut single, "Left Right Left," which peaked at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100 and brought him to his early fame.

Soon after the release of his debut album Causin' Drama in February 2000, Drama was jailed for violating probation and was sentenced to 90 days in prison.[2] The album peaked at #32 on the Billboard 200 on the chart week of April 1, 2000, backed by the popularity of "Left Right Left",[3] and went on to be certified Gold by the RIAA.[2] He was later released from prison, with the intention of working on new music. His song "Big Ball" was also featured on the Osmosis Jones soundtrack. As of July, 2013, his exact career status is unknown.
