Tatt N Chat: Driicky Graham Gets Inked


Back in the day as in how far?
Probably like ’05. Chris Brown and I could’ve gone neck in neck. I used to do all of that stuff he did back in the day but I fell in love with hip-hop more. You can’t really pop-lock and rap at the same time.

You’re a product of the internet. Do you ever feel like social media is too much to deal with?
It’s a gift and a curse. I think the gift is that as artists we get to promote ourselves. We have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other things like that to let the world know what we’re doing as well as keep us in tune with what the world is doing. Guys back in the day didn’t have that. The curse however, is that everything is over-saturated. There is too much exposure. Kids are growing up too fast like watching stuff nowadays that they shouldn’t be watching and like I said, it’s a double-edged sword.

Do you ever feel like an underdog in your industry?
Oh yeah, all the time. I feel like the new guy in high school that has to figure out if he has to go to the cool table, this table or that table but it’s natural. I just have to prove myself so it doesn’t really bother me that much. I know that I have to simply earn my stripes and work my way to the top. I’m on my grind.
