I stumbled upon Minneapolis spitter Drelli through a repost with a collaboration he has with underground staple Warhol.SS. He immediately took my ear with his ABILITY TO ACTUALLY RAP. Which is not something most young artist value these days, but I still do. Drelli has just left high school and in a long paragraph written on his Soundlcoud bio, has struggled with deciding to do music or go to school. I personally think he should keep at it and after you listen you probably will. His range of skills and beat selection is a key factor in my affinity for his music. With only six tracks on his Soundcloud he goes from eccentric Pharell-esque beats, to bassy 808 led bangers, to soothing piano led tracks. Even though he can spit he still dives into the contemporary flows and melodic vibing that the kids are so into these days. Cosigns from Kanye collaborator Allan Kingdom, and frequent Divine Council collaborator LORDFUBU also are good signs of a future for Drelli in music. Standout tracks for me are the Warhol collab “TWPL”and the recently released “Fur ever” Check out Drelli below. Trust me he’s fire.
