People love getting something they want right away, unless that something is a kid, as you don't know where those adopted ones have been. Providing you with off-the-dome raps about sketchy kids or anything else, whenever: Drizzy D.R.O.
A Birmingham resident who frequently collaborates with ATL mixtape DJs, Drizzy's an enterprising hip-hop artist who promotes his career via his Press Play Hotline: an anytime service in which you call and give him a word or phrase, and he instantly/enthusiastically spits a gritty full-freestyle verse, or "16 bars", although how he raps while eating that many Zagnuts is anyone's guess. Some random lyrical stylings:
Places That Produce Small, Screaming Men: "4-0-4, 6-7-8 / They call me from GA, and all the other states / But I really love the 'A' and I know I could go there / like David Banner & Lil' Jon, yellin' out 'YEAAAH!".
Landscaping Travails: "I'm thinkin' about the fact I gotta cut-this-grass / so I looked at my lawnmower, I don't see-no-gas / so I got my gas can, went to the gas station / Had to run to that [expletive], so my heart was steady racin' / If I had a lawnmower, I would cut your yard / but I'd probably have to charge right now, because it's hard!"
Fiscal Transparency: "They gon' put that money towards something else / but if I ever need tax money are they gonna give me help? / Obama implemented the Stimulus Plan / I guess that came from tax money, my man...but [expletive], I don't even know."
D.R.O's coming to ATL in two weeks to book shows; for now he's putting finishing touches on a new mixtape, upon which he'll be putting callers' testimonial voice messages as segues between songs. He's also about to release a not-free album of original, non-freestyle joints called A Starving Artist, which is always a tough place to be, but hey...at least he's not some shady adopted one!
