[INTERVIEW] CHOPPA TREE- DRAG-ON

I am back again with a Legend in the Hip Hop world. A lot of you know him as a member of Ruff Ryders or from the movies ‘Cradle 2 The Grave’, or ‘Exit Wounds’. As much as I would love to talk about Ruff Ryders and to see if he is going to potentially be getting back in front of the camera I’M NOT! As many of you can see if you are following Drag-on , on his social medias you will see he has been putting in work and he is not stopping as a matter of fact he is more motivated than before. Drag-on came out with his own record label ” Hood Environment” back in 2014.

SO: FIRST OFF I WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE GOOD AND BACK TO GOOD HEALTH. WE WITNESSED A LIGHT PASS OUT WHILE YOU WERE PERFORMING RECENTLY.

DRAG-ON: YES, EVERYTHING IS GOOD. I HAVE BEEN ON A GRIND LATELY AND THE NIGHT BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE I DIDN’T GET TO MUCH SLEEP , SMOKING AND DRNIKING NOTHING MAJOR IM GOOD THO.

SO: HOW IS THE RECORD LABEL COMING?

DRAG-ON: IT IS STARTING TO PICK UP, AND IM READY FOR IT TO PICK UP EVEN MORE SOON . ITS A LOOK THAT IS FOR ME.

SO: I’M LOVING YOUR NEW SINGLE CHOPPA TREE WHICH RIGHT YOU HAVE SET FOR ALL THE DJ’S TO HEAR, WHERE DID THE CONCEPTION FOR THIS SONG COME FROM?

DRAG-ON: I’VE BEEN IN THE GAME FOR A MINUTE , MAYBE EVEN CONSIDRED A RAPPER ALOT OF PEOPLE FEARED IN THE INDUSTRY BUT I STILL FEEL LIKE I HAVENT MADE IT OUT OF THE WOODS JUST YET. THE ONLY THING THATS STANDING IN FRONT OF ME IS A TREE AND THAT IS WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM. MY GOAL IS TO RECONNECT WITH MY FANS AND CONT. TO DO MUSIC BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT IT IS ABOUT.

SO:OKAY SO RECENTLY ON A IG POST YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW SOME OF THESE RAPPERS ARE HATING ON THE YOUNGER ARTIST, NOW IN THE SONG CHOPPA TREE YOU STATED AND I QOUTE ” YALL DRESS REAL FUNNY FOR THE MONEY”, WAS THIS A LOW BLOW OR SHOT TOWARDS THAT CROWD?

DRAG-ON: WITH THAT STATEMENT I AM SAYING THAT THE CATS THAT HAS BEEN IN THE GAME AS LONG AS I HAVE BEEN WE SHOULDN’T HATE ON THE NEW SCHOOL RAPPERS OR THERE STYLE OF RAP. IT HAS BEEN A CHAIN SINCE THE 8OS AND IT HAS TO STOP. HOW DOES IT LOOK? ITS LIKE TAKING CANDY FROM A BABY.

SO: HOW WAS THE BEACHFEST? DO YOU FEEL YOU ACCOMPLISHED WHAT YOU WENT TO DO?

DRAG-ON: I DID, MY GOAL WAS TO TOUCH MY FANS. I FELT THE STAGE WAS TO FAR FROM THE FANS BUT I HAD A GREAT TIME.

SO: SO WHAT ARE WE LOOKING OUT FOR FROM YOU?

DRAG-ON: NO ALBUM YET, I WANT TO AT LEAST MAKE A RECORD OR 2 LIKE I SAID PRIOR I THINK CHOPPA TREE IS GOING TO BE IT AND SET ME APART. DRAG IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW!  I HAVE ANOTHER RECORD COMING OUT SOON BUT NO DROPPING DATE JUST YET!

 

There you have it! Like I said before , Its not official until its been featured on Straight Official , Make sure you follow the talent Drag-On on his social medias and stay tune to all his new endeavors.

[FEMALE RAPPER OF THE MONTH] Straight Official Presents Charli Baltimore

For this month I bring to you 1 of my favorite female hip-hop artists. I call her Red Head thunder but most people call her Charli Baltimore. I mean when you think of a rider Charli is definitely the first to come to mind. She started her career in 95, word is Notorious B.I.G put her on to “Lance Rivera ” who sign her and Camron to his label Untertainment. After problems with the label on debuting her album “Cold as Ice” , she signed with Murder Inc. All throughout the 2000s we had hit after hit with her features so why was a different label still not dropping her albums. She left Murder Inc and resigned to The Inc in 2008. While most of us are still waiting for her album True Lies to release , Bed full of money is the last song the artist released which was in 2015. There was speculations that IGGY Azalea stole Charli’s verse but the artist responded “In all fairness I don’t think IGGY tried to steal my style, my area was all about lyrical content. I’m really supportive of all females in the game, times have change and it’s so sooo hard for females in this game. So any of them that can make a impact im all for it! I may not like all of it! But I support all the women in the game because this is a man’s game on the real, the women really need to try and come together.” If that isn’t real enough for you then I don’t know what is. Me personally Charli talks a lot about holding her man down which is key to a lot of females. She keeps it 100 at all times and I’m going to wait patiently for that album release. Also Charli Baltimore is cooking up some good stuff on the Set Life it’s rumored she will be in “The Stuff “directed by Rob Stapleton. Salute to one of the hottest female rappers in my book we will be waiting for more album news from Charli Baltimore!
