Watch her

When I was teaching radiology students in the Navy, one of my students was DRAMs cousin. I still tell redditors about it to this day.

Who should I work with next???

Denzel Curry

I also lowkey need a DRAM/Frank collab in my life.

We need more.

BASED GOD please let this happen. Their styles are so different that they'd be perfect in a collab.

You and Anderson Paak would make a great pair

This this tits this this

This this tits this this

one of these is not like the other

You and Frank O. would be a dream collaboration. You're both so damn smooth.

You should try to work with Big K.R.I.T

That'd be too good

Vince Staples is always a good choice.

I gotta agree with you here. I really didn't spend enough time listening to this dude, and I finally sat and listened to his record the other day on my commute home. The song with Desiigner is really great, also the "give me the ground" interlude really stuck out to me.

This would be nice

Thom Yorke

Make it happen

Then Bjork.

Gonna go the unpopular route here: I'd love to hear you and Estelle on a track.


Vince Staples, Kanye, Kendrick, Flatbush Zombies, Andre 3k, anyone and everyone dude when I saw you with Ken on the DAMN tour in Vegas you put on such a good show!

I got in a big fight with my gf during SXSW this year, the night I was planning on seeing you. I went to the show anyway and your joy to be there and your energy charged me up man. I passed that love on and made up with my girl and we're still together and happy today.

Thanks man. The realest.

dram when are we gonna get innit on a guest feature

Original Poster42 points · 8 months ago

Ahhhhhhhhhh. I have to do that

DRAM why'd you have to put effects on that angelic voice of yours?

I would love to see you do some more work with Rick though that man is a legend

someone asking the heavy hitters in this thread

Someone had to say it ^ the song would be dope without that nasally voice shit.

I said that when “Nikes” came out but it’s a year later and I honestly can’t imagine the song generating the same feeling without it. Hopefully it grows on you.

All these comments dick riding, I love DRAM but that vocal effect is trash

Edit: mean no disrespect /u/bigbabydram im a longtime fan

18 points · 8 months ago

So so sick. /u/bigbabydram you know who's playing guitar and bass on this?

Hey DRAM. I'm a huge fan, been a fan since Cha Cha. It's my real life birthday today so me out to New Zealand for your January 10th show?

Original Poster69 points · 8 months ago

Oh shit Happy Birthday

so no then?

Asking the important questions. Haha

Appreciate it, man!

Semi related:

My gf didn't know who you were before we saw you at ACL, after your set she became an instant fan and her favorite song is Cha Cha

Huge fan of this, super unique sound. DRAM continues to be one of my favorites in the game. Good stuff!

Kinda sound like Anderson Paak on this

Oh shit my DRAM out

It's pronounced DROM.

Notice me DRAM!!

Original Poster24 points · 8 months ago


Omg I love you DRAM

DRAM posting a video of an audio file is exactly what I needed today.

this shit sounds liek something straight off of blonde or awaken my love

Hey dram this is dope. I saw your interview with rick Rubin and he seems like one of the coolest guys to work with, my question is a bit different though. What's your go to meal to cook up when you've got a girl coming over? I'm talking your hanging out but you're still cooking to impress- I know you've got a good recipe in there

Dram dick sucking aside I fuck with this, the vocal effects sound almost hilarious but still really cool also that delivery would sound so good side by side with .Paak.

Dram im not gonna be at Falls Festival Perth bc I cant afford both days but hope u enjoy my trash city

Hey dram ever considered having a show over here in Egypt been a fan since I first heard $

Since when was the real dram on hiphopheads? I saw you at welcomefest and i dont even go to boulder, your performance was awesome and i had a lot of fun. Love you dude keep up the good work

The only drops my boyfriend and I ever get excited for! Yesss

DRAM ever thought about working with Trey Songz or August Alsina?

I fuck with you so much dram, keep making rump rattlin music

DRAM you seem like the most wholesome person ever. I wish I had your outlook on life.

I love that DRAM is one of us. Dude just gives off happy vibes all the time

very well done!!!

Shout out to DRAM for being dope AF and original.

It took Jay 18 years to get a Rick Rubin track. What a great look! Big ups to you and keep doing your thing!

so nice to have a youtube link and not some itunes bullshit

dram knows how to reddit

Did anyone else get any Anderson .Paak vibes? This seems like a beat that he'd def be on.

Super fresh. Thanks, man.

DRAM i remember seeing you when you played w Metro Boomin, Towkio and Chance the Rapper in Boston. You fucking killed that show, serenading the crowd in a spotlight. Ever since then and your feature on Surf I've paid attention to all of your releases and you're really an inspiration, thank you for changing the game

this like delusional thomas but w drammy


This is weird. Keep going.

Your random ass concert at the University of Virginia a few months ago was dope and unexpected. Bdb back here soon

thank you DRAM

Dram you punched a kid in my school at a concert

I'm loving the influence from Stankonia and The Love Below. It's crazy how many military kids are in the music business (need to update the wiki with the new release)
