“The name Dro Man comes from my music, my sound. My music is intoxicating, strong, and it sticks to you!”. It resonates! So, Dro Man is a pun, so to speak on the quality of music he delivers. “Elementary aged kids are “Jiggalatin”. I know it’s important for me to show them there are healthy lifestyle options. That’s why I got involved with education programs that encourage kids to stay in school. We are putting together a school tour now”.
Trap is a term Dro Man uses with which urban youth can identify when it comes to working hard. “Trap is putting in hard work in the hustle of life”, says Dro Man. By taking a term that has such an identity in a culture and associating it with hard work ethic in today’s times, is actually a way to encourage people to stay positive-Be happy!
