My new project with Drama is titled « In Us We Trust » it’s a dope project featuring production from top notch producers like Justice League, Statik Selektah, KE On The Track, 1500 Or Nothin, The Olympicks and Ski Beatz among others. I linked up with Drama after I dropped my « DROHIO » mixtape with Don Cannon last year. Me & Dram got a nice buzz going with this project.
Can you tell us about the choice of features (artists, producers)?
I wanted to do this project with no rap features to show that I’m capable of holding my own as a new artist. I have Victoria Monet, Tommy Parker and Plane Jaymes signing hooks. I mostly wanted to just collab with the dopest producers I could reach out to.
