Hip hop has officially made the transition to the internet, as this has become the best way to discover new talent. In the Midwest, Drew32 is one of the biggest artists rising. A native of Detroit, Drew32 is building his name in his area and all around the world.
Check out this interview I did with StarPulse.com!
Detroit-based rapper and producer Drew32 is hoping that 2014 will be his breakthrough year. Following the release of his mixtape The Batch: Volume One, BFTV connected with Drew to talk about the kind of artist he wants to be - and how he came to make the acquaintance of a 22-foot snake.
"I’m kind of like a one-man band and I’m really passionate about it," he told us. "I rap, I produce, I do web design - I kind of do it all. I’ve been doing this since I was 10 years old. It’s what I love to do. And I’d love to be able to really connect with fans."

Drew 32, writer, producer, videographer—you name it he has done it. His hands on approach to his brand of music is admirable. From the D to the world, with stops along the way as an opening act for Gym Class Heroes, Kendrick Lamar, and the New Boyz hasn’t hurt. His performances at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Music Conference have done wonders for his buzz, and odds are his production going forward will be just as stellar. Drew32 Recently released The Batch, an ode to his fans, and a teaser for what 2014 and beyond hold. Judging by the attention his hit single “I Am King,” is getting along with his mantra, ‘the more content, the better,’ the future is very bright for this Greek-American artist. Parlé with me as I introduce to you… Drew 32.
Parlé: Detroit has been a hot bed for talent for quite a number of years. How do you see your sound as being a great representative of the vibe musically in the D or do you see yourself as taking an initiative to be innovative?
Drew 32: My music is definitely influenced by the sound of my hometown, Detroit, but I will add to that the fact that I have always tried to do things my own way. Of course I looked up to Royce Da 5’9”, Eminem guys like that and tried to emulate their success and approach to music if anything, but I pride myself on being different. I am making my own lane.
It’s Monday so you know what that means! New episode of my brand new YouTube web series #Drew32World. Check out Episode 3 right here! We were clowning and having a great time at my homie’s hookah lounge Ignite. Watch now.
