Let’s get to know Drift…
3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people know who Drift is and what Drift does.
Drift: Drift is a Father, Rapper and Actor. From East Orange, NJ by way of Ghana, West Africa. Currently signed to D.O.E./eOne Music.
3 Voices: What inspired you to become an artist? Who are some artists that have influenced your music career?
Drift: Naughty by Nature inspired me to pursue music. We’re from the same town. They stayed about 5 minutes away from me growing up. Once I saw them hit Super Stardom I knew if I worked hard anything is possible.
3 Voices: You starred in DJ Khaled’s “Never Surrender” & Yo Gotti “Don’t Come Around” official videos. Can we expect to see you in any movie roles or any other music videos anytime soon?
Drift: I love acting! I’m eager to appear in more projects but music is my primary focus at the moment. I wouldn’t turn down any roles either though.
3 Voices: You’ve met quite a few artists. If you were given the opportunity to work with three artists, who would those three artists be?
Drift: If I could work with three artists they would be Ma$e, Akon and T.I… They were all my favorite artists at one point.
3 Voices: Tell us about your single, “Kiyana”. Have you ever been in a situation similar to the one portrayed in “Kiyana”?
Drift: Kiyana was inspired by the Hype Williams movie “Belly”. It was very easy to write because I’ve been in that predicament quite a few times lol
3 Voices: What’s next for you? Are there any exclusives you can share with us?
Drift: Next up is my album. I won’t release it until I break a few singles though. I got some phenomenal records on deck.
3 Voices: How can the people reach out to you on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc.?
Drift: People can find me on Instagram and Twitter @TheRealDRIFT and Facebook “Drift AkaKojo”.
