The big homie Draeco hit us up with the video to his newest anthem “On Me.” He didn’t beat around the bush, letting us know that this one is definitely for the streets. We wouldn’t want to disagree with him, but quite frankly we can’t. Peep the video below and show him some love on Twitter!

Atlanta Music Promoter - Draeco

Bio: Draeco, born in Lagrange, GA, found his love for music at an early age accrediting the two cities that raised him (LaGrange & Atlanta). Starting out with just singing along to the radio, his talent emerged when he first started writing his own lyrics to instrumentals found on cassette singles. A talent for rapping, singing and songwriting, led him into realizing this was what he was made for. Entering talent shows he would outshine the competition with remarks from judges like, "Not only is he very talented, he has the look of a superstar". He would later go on to open shows for such acts as Da Organization, Dru Hill, 702, Silk and Young Dro. Draeco has been making hits and keeping the people waiting for his next song. Recently he has been featured on several sites and mixtapes, and has been in rotation on several internet radio stations. Mixtapes he has been featured on include Elegant Hoodness vol.1, Tornado Warning: In Due Time, All Star Game: New Money vs. New Problems, The Indie Top 50 volumes 47, 48, 69, and We Got Next volumes 2 and 3. He was also the featured artist of The Indie Top 50 vol. 26 mixtape from Coast 2 Coast mixtapes. Draeco’s own mixtapes include Demolition Man, Hotter Than Hell, and To Whom It May Concern. He is currently promoting his new hot single On Me which will be featured on his upcoming mixtape.

Exclusive Interview

Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I’m from a town called LaGrange, GA just south of Atlanta. I’ve lived in Atlanta for several years before and handled a majority of my music biz and networking there. Persistent grinding is what has got me to this position I’m in now, but it’s still a lot more work to do.

Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
“Blowin Up” is a song I made basically to celebrate accomplishments that my team and I have made so far. It’s an uptempo banger that is sure to make ya bob your head.

Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
One of the hardest challenges is funding. A lot of people don’t realize the grind and money that has to go into putting yourself out there to get people to listen, promote, etc and it comes out of your own pocket.

What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
One of my biggest setbacks was being arrested on one occasion. I didn’t do any prison time, but I was basically on lockdown with a curfew for a year. I had just dropped a mixtape and couldn’t promote, do shows or anything. I was only able to hand out limited copies so the work put into that project kind of went to waste.

What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Janky promoters and fake managers. I’ve been caught in that area a couple times and I hate it with a passion. A good business rep goes a long way and a bad one expands and follows in a bad way. That bad rep will spread and soon no one will do anything with that person. Just gotta be careful and see proof of work they’ve done before continuing a relationship with them.

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Do whatever you can that you think will help your career. I know a lot of artists feel they are stars already and won’t put money into making things happen. This is the way the game is set up now. Gotta pay to play. Get on mixtapes, get in showcases, and shows. Get your songs mixed and mastered. Do not push a song to the public unmixed, you will get no play.

What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
One of my favorite ways is through Twitter. I put out links of different things I’ve done and in turn, I can actually see the stats of how many plays, views, downloads, likes something gets. That way I can know what is really catching peoples’ attention and push it.
