Donny Draco – MY MIND [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Edgy, Emotional, alternative

MY MIND contains a melodic, nicely manipulated flow uppon a heavy trap beat. Tell us a few things about it.

Well the instrumental was produced by Garret Adams (Beats by G). We were in the studio together looking through some samples, and this guitar one popped up. It caught my attention and so Garret worked his magic on it. As for the song itself, I was in the studio alone one night, pulled up the beat and it just kind of happened. When I listened back to It I was like oh whoa this delivery is different than what I usually do, but It’s really catchy.

For which lyric you are most proud of

I really like a few lines from a previous song I released (Enough Of The Truth). I said “I got nothing to do, every day I been stuck in a loop, Tell me the lies had enough of the truth”

Favourite rapper, lyricist and producer?

My overall favorite Artis and even lyricist would have to be X (XXX Tentacion). I guess My Favorite Producer would have to be the homie Garrett (Beats By G). He’s made the beats for every song I’ve put out haha.

Most iconic emo rap track ever?

It’s hard to pick. It might sound cliche, but Star Shopping by Peep is one of my all time favorites still.

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

I don’t really make party music or hype music. I would say the music I have out now is like solo car ride late at night type of music. I feel like some of it is great to listen to if you’re emotional or going through a rough patch. It’s also good if you’re just chilling and need something cool to listen to.

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

Long story short, After I turned 21, I went out drinking at a bar for the first time. Everyone was feeding me shots/drinks because it was my first time out. By the time we were about to leave I was very loose. We were going to walk to a friends house close by, but I wanted to get my weed out of the car in a near by parking garage. I got to the car, got my Backpack with bud in it and found a can of spray paint. My drunk self proceeded to start tagging different parts of the garage. In the middle of my painting session a cop rolls right up next to me in the garage. I didn’t have time to reason with him, got cuffed instantly, the cop found my weed, and I got brought to the station to stay the night. Nothing major, but definitely a ridiculous story.

Thank you!
