*You may have heard him on “Empire,” “Sports Center,” or even “Love and Hip Hop.”
Draze is an emerging emcee from the vibrant Emerald City music scene, and today, his debut mix tape “Seattle’s Own,” drops.
“I’m taking us back to real music,” explains the musician. “That’s what the ‘Draze Experience’ is all about. The content in my music is really layered, from street life, to social justice, to relationships. I try to write what is real. That’s why you hear real horns and real guitars, because I’m into authenticity, and I think my fans appreciate that.”
The performer credits artists like Nas, Outkast, Dr. Dre, and Bob Marley for influencing the depth in his sound and has opened for Snoop Dogg, Wale, and Floetry.
“The energy around Seattle music right now is crazy,” shares Draze.”I am happy to be a part of it. Getting co-signs from artists like Sir Mix-A-Lot and Macklemore is an honor. Now I’m just trying to grab the baton and run with it.”
