House Shoes Presents The Gift: Volume Ten - DRUGS BEATS (LP)


The Gift is a series DJ House Shoes started to spotlight under the radar producers.

DRUGS, whose name is attributed to the addictive properties and high potency of his music, hails from Fayetteville, North Carolina.

He first began experimenting with music at the age of thirteen. While he was in high school he began analyzing beats and searching for his own future source material to make beats from. This was DRUGS’ beginning as a beatmaker/producer.

From the mid 00’s to the early 10’s DRUGS honed his craft and eventually sold beats professionally to notable artists like 50 Cent, Big Boi (OutKast), Ludacris, Marv Won & Fattfather (Fat Killahs).

In previously writing about DRUGS’ beats on Medium last year, I famously said “These beats make me want to sell crack rock on a skateboard while wearing Iron Man’s armor in a school zone during recess. I heard some of the jawns on this cat’s SoundCloud and I made ugly faces to rival Tyrone Hill pre-sneeze. These slaps make me want to run through multiple plate glass windows like Master P at the end of the If I Could Change video. He has taken his influences and succeeded in using them to create his own unique style”.
