  1. I’ve heard every track since concrete jungle
    and always related to your message. # patiently waiting on the album

  2. Hey Drastic,
    I love your music man! It’s so inspirational, so real! You are a lyrical genius and I pray that you are successful in the music business. I have followed your music since The Black Diamond! I definitely plan on getting The Connect and trying your energy drink! Thanks for blessing us with your music! God bless!

  3. I want to see you perform when you come to Atlanta and I want you to perform one of my throwback favorites *Jesus Wept 🙂 I hope you will be here before this year is out! Keep me posted, please.

  4. I been following you since high school and been a fan ever since then. I’ve seen much growth over the years (personal and business). Keep up the outstanding work. It’s been more than a pleasure working with you in the past and current.

  5. Drastic is one of the most talented and socially active artists in Dallas. From his music to his involvement in the community to his energy drink, he is constantly progressing. It’s inspirational and I commend him.

  6. It is very uncommon for any artist to be as passionate, socially aware and diverse all while remaining humbled and innovative at the same time. Drastic’s ability to set new standards and not conform to what the ‘Dallas’ music scene has been known for is without exaggeration the best out of the city and a much needed breath of fresh air. He is single handedly setting a trend of authenticity in his music and lyrical content all while balancing other Buisness ventures. The world needs this. As I always say Silent Moves are the best moves cause the foundation that’s laid under the radar is what will be used to elevate you. I can’t wait to see more!
