We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Rap Artist…2kDRAE!!! 2kDRAE has a single called, Thotiana featuring Lil Herb & Black Belt Wil that has over 140,000 views and counting on YouTube which is steady increasing daily. “Don’t wife that Thotiana…no no…don’t wife that Thotiana…” Lets get to know 2kDRAE….
3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people who 2kDRAE is and what 2kDRAE does.
2kDRAE: I’m a rap artist from Gary Indiana…and I just like to have a good time and stay working.
3 Voices: What inspired you to become a rap artist? Who are some artists that influenced your music career?
2kDRAE: My cousins were rappin before me [and] kinda pushed me in that direction. But some influences would have to be all the greatest…but others like Cudi, Redman, Outkast and etc. Just artists who didn’t have problem being themselves.
3 Voices: Your single, “Thotiana” featuring Lil Herb & Black Belt Wil has been doing quite well, earning over 140,000 views on YouTube in just a few weeks. Tell us how the three of you came up with Thotiana. In your opinion, what is a “Thotiana”?
2kDRAE: Well Black Belt Wil is one of my producers and we were just chillin in the studio clownin and Wil just started screaming “don’t wife that thotiana” and I told him “lets record”. I put my verse on it then reached out to Herb and he was with it…so we knocked it out and a THOTIANA is pretty much singling out a specific thot and just giving her a name.
3 Voices: Can we possibly expect a Thotiana remix?
2kDRAE: Who knows…we didn’t expect the record to do what it did. So as far as a remix, we will see who reaches out and if it make sense I don’t see why not.
3 Voices: If you could work with any three artists in the music industry, who would they be?
2kDRAE: I’m not really into chasing artists. If the record is dope, I’m in…big name or small name. I just want good music.
3 Voices: What’s next for you? Are there any exclusives you can share with us?
2kDRAE: Right now, I’m finishing up my project hard work and loud purp 2 the ePIFFany.
3 Voices: How can the people reach out to you on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc.?
2kDRAE: @2kdrae on everything social
