It’s been a long time coming for the Virginia native. With ‘Cha Cha’ – he seamlessly went from a Soundcloud artist to something much bigger. A Beyonce cosign, deal with Atlantic Records, and his various releases leading up to ‘Broccoli’ sure helped propel the process. Features on the album come from Young Thug, Erykah Badu, & Lil Yachty (of course). This is shaping up to be one of the most eclectic albums of the year.

I don’t quite know how to describe your album. It’s not really hip-hop, but I don’t know if it’s R&B—
It’s funk. All right, so P-Funk is one of the major influences on what I do. ‘Cause their sound varies from so many different things. They blend so many influences into an original way. That’s what I like to do. The popular songs which you’re gonna hear gravitate to simplistic, but that’s not the entire scope D.R.A.M. has to offer, know what I’m saying? That’s the trappy-go-lucky, that’s what we know will sell, that’s what lifts up the spirits, that’s what gets the party started. But there’s a time and place for everything, What the project has done is given you a natural feel of day and night, day to night and back to day.
How do you want people to feel about this album?
“Damn, this nigga’s a real artist. He gave us a real solid body of work. With hits, with vibes, with profundity, with simplicity, all in one.”
