THE DRO B INTERVIEW
Are you from Philly? What does the local music community mean to you?
Nah, I’m from Allentown like an hour north. Out here we got a dope ass music scene goin. Shout to all my homies. Everybody got a different ass sound that’s their own too. Philly shows me love every time I’m out there, which is pretty frequent, so I gotta show it back. I love Philly and all* (*pronounced most) the artists that I’ve met outchea.
Who are some of your biggest inspirations?
Soulja Boy, Chief Keef, Lil B, Andre 3000, Berner, Wiz, Mac...my homies Young Sack, and ATM, and of course I inspire myself. Oh and S/O Nate Kobain, my engineer, and addiwhyyoubooted! , (one of) my producer(s) and good friend, for always keeping me grinding.
How would you describe your sound/vibe to someone who’s never heard your music before?
Unprecedented. Unique. Uplifting. Tuff. Stoney. To be honest I just be gettin super high and goin dummy over hype ass bouncy ass beats that’ll have your kids kids gettin lit when it comes on.
Tell us about your most recent release. What does this project mean to you? What was your inspiration?
I just dropped an #WeAreNotTheSame on July 15th. Y’all should all really go check that shit out right now....shit , before you even finish reading this go click that link and run it up. Anyways, to me, it really just means that I’m super fuckin lit; and mega dope; this specific project wasn’t really that deep...you dig?
But my inspiration for #WeAreNotTheSame consists of 3 things....How I live, things I observe, and bitches I swerve.
Do you have any new music or visuals dropping before the end of the year?
I got this joint mixtape dropping w my homie ATM...shout out ATM. This shit really go crazy, summer vibes, but such a unique sound. I can promise y’all have never heard anything like it. And I got an EP called Late Nights ready to drop; I’m just waiting on the right time. So be on the lookout for both of those! And I have probably 20+ other songs either waiting on features or mix/master so I’ll be dropping a ton of loosies in there. And that’s just what I’ve got done already, I just started the writing process for another project. Visuals on the way too.
Who are some of your dream collaborations? Are there any local artists you would love collaborate with?
I neeeeed a Dro B x T-Pain collab. Fuck it, lemme get Akon get on that shit too on some 2008 club shit. And you know what? I need a snoop Dogg verse too. But locally on an Allentown level? I’m really tryna get some work done w grand khai. As well as LG Izz. They both go hard as fuck. Philly wise? I’d have to say Matt OX, Diamond St Keem, TIERRA WHACK!! The list goes on and on.
Do you plan on performing live more often?
Yeah! I got a show at the Rusty Nail in Ardmore, PA on 8/23 soooo hit me up on twitter/ig for tickets. I love performing whether it’s 10 people, 100, 1,000, it don’t even matter! I love getting shit turnt up on stage. I feel like my music is better live too. Soooo if any promoters reading this HMU let’s get to work.
What’s next for you?
I’m gonna put this blunt out and roll another wood. Late Nights EP coming soon. Dro B x ATM project comin soon. Hopefully I can just keep working and watch the numbers run up. Stay tuned you can catch me on twitter IG and SoundCloud @drobbryant
