He’s inspired by a range of soundscapes and artists, from George Clinton, Bilal to Dipset and Snoop Dogg. He’s garnered success with his #1EpicSummerEP, released in September 2014, which featured the viral single “Cha Cha.” Since then, he’s scaled down & re-released the project as #1EpicEP. GAHDAMN! EP, a collaboration with the Social Experiment, and a slew of singles that are climbing the charts, with the latest being “Broccoli,” featuring Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M.’s collaborated with a handful of notable artists, who he considers friends, such as Chance the Rapper, SZA and E-40.
