Featured artist: Drastikk – North Carolina’s next artist to watch!
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Drastikk from Henderson 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, Drastikk! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Drastikk: I always listened to music since a little kid and I loved writing so it felt natural. Around 8th grade I realized I could write my own songs maybe get people to love me as an artist too! I decided right then I would become a music artist. I didn’t have any recording equipment or a name, but I knew this is what I want to do for life!
The same passion that drives you, can be the same passion that crashes you.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes I play live and I love the stage to be honest! Yes I’ve performed at concerts in the past and I’m sure to have many other coming in the future.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
Ain’t no sense in battling me/ it’s pointless, like getting out the shower to pee/ -Drastikk
