Chicago rapper Young DRA (pronounced DRAY) dropped his latest single “Don’t Understand” featuring NLE Choppa. This is the first release together but their chemistry comes through in this collaboration. “Don’t Understand” is produced by longtime collaborator and Grammy Award winningproducer Xcelence. A video for the song is slated for release next week on January 15th.
DRA recently performed to a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden opening for MTV’s “Wild’n Out Tour”, supporting acts including A-Boogie Wit a Hoodie, Glorilla, and Bobby Smurda. DRA’s music is a mix of hip-hop, trap, and soul; what he refers to as a “musical gumbo.” DRA cites influences including James Brown, Baha Men, and The Notorious B.I.G. Having grown up in a once notoriously dangerous neighborhood in Chicago, Young DRA has been driven to use his voice to spread a positive message and promote a lifestyle apart from violence, stating: “What’s the point of rapping if you’re not rapping about something of substance?”
