During our interviews with all bands, we love to stalk their collection, find out some of their best hidden gems. Jamie Drastik is an artist who grew up outside of NYC and worked hard to build a radio spin presence, catching the ear of Pitbull’s camp, and put his career on a path for a meteoric rise. Staff writer Carlita sat down with Jamie Drastik recently, here’s a paraphrasing of his Celebrity Recommendations session.
Smokey Robinson doesn’t get nearly enough credit, maybe because he wasn’t as big an artist as he was a writer.
Royce da 5’9 is a hip hop writer out of Detroit, number 1, 2 or 3 hip hop lyricist in the game to me.
J-Cole – Maybe it’s cause its his self-branding, either way I think he’s super dope. I may chance my mind, but I think I’ll stick with him for now.
Missy Elliot is one of the best producers and people in hip hop of all time, Missy Elliott, people dont talk about her nearly enough or how she can sing. Amazing artist
Trick Daddy– People dont talk about him enough.
