DreGarde – Twenty5 [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Authentic, Relatable, Vulnerable

Tell us a few things about your new work ‘Twenty5’. What is the story behind it?

Twenty5 is an audio autobiography of what I was going thru at the age (25) and the earlier part of when I turned (26).

I had family and family friends pass away
My mom wasn’t at her best health , my lady at the time just broke up with me plus I was in a state of transformation within myself.

So much was going on in my life at that time it was very overwhelming, when I heard the beat for “Goosebumps” that’s when the journey of creating Twenty5 started.

Now we here!

Which song of the album reflects you the most?

“Imperfections” I cried writing recording and listening to that song! It’s hard to not feel the vulnerability in it. Also Shoutout the homegirl Limbochildd for blessing me with vocals on that record she definitely took it to another level in my eyes.

Who is your favourite beat maker and which rapper’s flow do you enjoy the most?

I know y’all asked for one beatmaker but I have to give you two producers I’m sorry!!

Alchemist and Cardo got wings is my favorite right now and been for a minute.
to work with any of them would be an honor!

For flows off top Kendrick!
Many may not know of them but Le$ and GT also got flows that I vibe to heavy!

What does hip hop symbolize in your opinion?

The real. Real comes in all shapes sizes and voices. Of course there’s always gonna be some bullshit but at its core hip hop symbolizes the real.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Accept that you’re different from people but not better & embrace it there’s a reason some people don’t fit in. They’re supposed to stand out.

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

I was at a young lady’s house doing my thing back in my younger years and didn’t know her father was a sheriff well his ass came home and I tried hiding in the closet like a goofy lol that didn’t end well! I’m here to tell the story though so it’s all good in the end.

Thank you!
