With Soundcloud being proven as such an easy way to find new and innovative artists, there’s constantly new groups and new additions to said groups. P2TheGoldMa$k’s ever growing Peddler Money Gang Record label/group is a great place to look for some of the underground’s best, including Encinitas rep, Drippin So Pretty. DSP was already dropping music with fellow PMG members Neeks & Burger, who together with him make up Ratchet Money Gang, before they were added to the PMG squad, and DSP had already been making waves with his Soaking Mac tape. This year, DSP & Neeks collaborated on a full tape together entitled Gato Seco y GG Neeks.
Who Are You? What Do You Wanna Tell The World About Yourself?
What/Who Are Your Main Inspirations For Making Music?
Main inspiration for making music is that it makes me happy, and helps me live in the moment. It helps me stay outta trouble, all the bullshit doesn’t matter. No one inspired me to make music, people helped me get to where I’m at though.
Who Are Some Producers That You Work With?
Burger, YVNG SHOKU, Nedarb Nargrom, BUDA BLE$$, Willie G, Yung Mojio, Savzilla, Trash Cat, anyone that sends me bangers I’m hyped off of though, need more Trash Cat haha.
Are You Affiliated With Any Artists Or Crews?
Not really, PMG is my family. I fuck with other people but not their whole entire crew.
Who Are Some Artists You Wish To Work With In The Future?
Any underground artist who fuckin’ with me that got the juice.
Who is God Blessin’?
God is blessing Drip. I should be a homeless junkie but God turned my shit around and has blessed me with this opportunity. God blessing the PMG fam, especially P2TheGoldMa$k, he’s putting his all into PMG, its insane.
How did you get involved with P2TheGoldMa$k and join PMG?
P2 and JT I think reached out to me on Soundcloud or Twitter, and just saw that I wasn’t really apart of anything. I wasn’t, I was just making music to have fun that’s all. And P2 thought I had a unique potential or some shit at this music shit. I remember just saying “if I’m in it then my bro Burger has to be with me too” cuz he was my only plug to make music and he makes beats and recorded and mixed everything. Neeks, Burger and I are all from Encinitas San Diego, Neeks joined PMG while he was staying in Houston though, but we been putting down hard since he been back in Enci. We all been rapping for like 2 years or some shit, recording anyways. We got a lotta diversity on PMG, but we all hold down our own shit.
Since you are “Drippin so pretty like the Weatherman”, what is the best weather to drip so pretty in and why?
I grew up at the beach, surfing and skating, I’m in the summer time flexed up looking like a young dolphin shiny as fuck sun oil on the kid no bad weather unless I say so thats how it be in the E for me hahaha.
How did Drippin So Pretty & Neeks get together to collab on the Gato Seco y GG Neeks EP?
We whip up the bangers on the quickness, the mosh type shit. Me and Neeks grew up together, we’ve known each other since 7th grade and shit, we’re both 21. We hadn’t made a tape yet so we made that shit. The track ” The Message” is a strong one though, we are both recovering heroin addicts, we were shooting dope when we were 15 till he got clean from it 4 years ago. I been struggling still but I’m clean as of now. The song is super powerful, because we know our shit about recovery, we hope that people hear it that are struggling with addiction, and just question their shit. We not like crazy sober kids pressing a message, I still struggle with my shit, I’m not completely sober right now, so I don’t know, the song helps me. The other songs just go hard though, “Loped Out” is about us being shady scum fucks back in the day, licking houses, doing dope with stinky hoes all that shit hahaha. Shouts out to Encinitas for raising such pieces of shit haha we’re stuntin’ now though.
Can you tell us a bit about your group with Burger “Ratchet Money Gang”?
It’s not really a group, Neeks was just visiting from Houston a while ago, and we just were posted and dropped a tape. Ratchet Gang is like some shit Neeks repped, I was saying that shit in rehab though when I was 17. We just scummy lil’ ratchet fucks who have no guap hahaha. Me, Burger and Neeks went in on that crack house junt tho thats one of my favorite Burger beats!!
When Can We Expect Your Next Project To Drop?
I’m bout to drop the Binged Out tape, all my shit mixed by Lil Peep, and also I’m dropping a tape with Nedarb Nagrom on his beats, he got a couple lit features on the junt too.
