Interview: Drake Hawkins

by | Apr 7, 2021 | New Artist Interviews, New Rap Music Artists

Artist Name: Drake Hawkins

New Song/Release Title: Always

Tell us something about you that fans should know:

I love to try and find something new that people haven't heard before. Whether that's sampling the sound of literal screeching metal or changing my flow every couple bars, I don't like to make the same thing twice.

Where are you from and what’s the music scene like there?

I have never stayed in one area for too long. That's why my sound is diverse. I've constantly moved from city to city, placement to placement, and have been around an innumerable amount of sounds that I've been inspired by. Shout out to Fort Wayne though since that's the city I started rapping in.

How have your life experiences influenced your music?

I was abused as a child. Physically, I still have the scars on my lower back; psychologically, I still have nightmares and flashbacks; and I use my music as an outlet to deal with those issues.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Denzel Curry
