The Break Presents: Drew32

Get familiar with this 21-year-old out of Michigan, who’s riding high off his DJ Skee-hosted Label Me mixtape.

Standout: “I Am King” ft. Jon Connor

And: “Headlines”

Name: Drew32

Age: 21

Hometown: I grew up in the Auburn Hills area of metro-Detroit, Michigan.

I grew up listening to: Tupac, Eminem, Royce da 5’9″, Bob Marley, Biggie, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, The Game, Jay-Z, Sergio Mendes, and tons more.

Most people don’t know I: Do my own graphic design as well as rap and produce. I did all the graphic design work for my website

My style’s been compared to: Kanye, Eminem, Drake. People say my voice sounds like Lupe Fiasco too sometimes. I once heard that I sound like Childish Gambino. Generally, I don’t really like comparisons, because even though I’ve been influenced by tons of great music, at the end of the day I am my own artist.

My standout records and moments to date have been: “I Am King” with Jon Connor has been a huge record for me. It debuted #1 on and aired on MTVU which was dope as hell. Also, when I dropped a remix verse to Drake’s “Headlines”, it definitely did some huge numbers for me on YouTube. My standout moment for me was releasing my latest mixtape, Label Me with DJ Skee. The response was incredible.

My goal in Hip-Hop is: To one day make albums influenced by the music of certain countries that I visit and tour in. For example, I absolutely love Brazilian music. I’d love to record an album in Brazil and make Brazilian-influenced rap records. Same with countries like Greece, Mexico, Jamaica, and the list goes on. That’s like my dream.

I’m gonna be the next: Rap artist to grasp an international appeal and surprise a lot of people.
