Featured artist: D R E A D (DreadTripleSix) – TheOnlyThingToFearIsFearItself: Meet DREAD.
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist D R E A D (DreadTripleSix) from Tampa to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, D R E A D (DreadTripleSix)! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
D R E A D (DreadTripleSix): I decided to get into rap/hip-hop after contributing most of my life to being instrumentally virtuous so that I could rip the stage like Randy Rhoads or Eric Clapton, or whoever else I idolize even to this day- then seeing my skill increase without a proportionate increase in an audience.
When you feel like quitting, don't.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I have played live shows in the past but only as a rock/metal artist. I've only done one show as DREAD.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I don't really wanna give a punchline. If you're really interested, just go listen to the music until you find one you like.
