Mistajay: A lot of artists/producers come into the game with a lot of ambition but don’t spend time learning the business side. How important to you is learning about publishing and royalties?
D.R.U.G.S: music is only 25% of the game...the business plays 75 percent of the game..this is why u see wack artist with their business together succeed. vs the talented artist whom don't have his business together..make sure u have people that has your best interests in your corner..get your publishing..
Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2017? How do you see yourself fitting into that?
D.R.U.G.S: in my honest opinion..we need to understand the difference between rap and hip hop..rap is a spin off of hip hop..as heavy metal was to rock..as grunge was to metal.blue grass etc..mumble RAP is not hip hop and thats perfectly ok..stop taking it as an insult because it;s not..it shows our growth with our culture we did the same..AGAINN...
