D.R.A.M. came through Connecticut for Hot 93.7’s Christmas Party at Toads Place, and he took a minute to chop it up with KidFresh to confirm his collab EP with Erykah Badu, his plans for 2017, and more.
It was just over a month ago that D.R.A.M. dropped his debut album ‘Big Baby D.R.A.M.’ and things just keep on going up for the rapper. “The lead single is the triple platinum selling ‘Broccoli’ and we’re on the way to another number one record with this ‘Cash Machine’ joint,” he told KidFresh before his headlining appearance at Hot 93.7’s annual Christmas Party. “I feel very proud to say that yesterday it was the number one most-added record on the rhythmic radio platform. I’m continuing to spread the vibe.”
D.R.A.M. said he is very hyped to be working with Erykah Badu. There have been rumors of the two working together, and as it turns out, ‘WiFi’– her feature on D.R.A.M.’s album– was just the beginning. “We’re working on music together! We have a record called ‘Wi Fi’ that’s on ‘Big Baby D.R.A.M.,’ and that’s just the beginning of the work we have coming up,” he said.
That track will be followed by an EP they’re working on together. “She said it. I said it because she said it,” D.R.A.M. said. “I was keeping it on the low. When she let it be known that we’ve been working on that [EP]… she’s definitely right.”
That isn’t the only thing on deck for 2017, D.R.A.M. continues to ramp things up. “The Big Baby D.R.A.M. Tour starts at the top of the year. I’m gonna kick that thing off in Nashville,” he explained. “I’m very grateful that I’m able to move around. 2017 is looking very promising. [There’s] a lot of things in the works, a lot of things have already been working… the rabbit hole goes very deep.”
