Like most things musically inclined, as the times change so does the sound. And, thanks in part to the somber sonics of one Drake-led OVO Sound crew, others are inspired by those tones. This is where Drew Howard comes in.
The Toronto emcee recently released his formal introduction, 88 Camino, in an interesting manner: similar to Raury‘s 2014 debut Indigo Child, Drew released his project on his site via an interactive video game. However, it’s his single “You’re Not My Mans” that has attracted the most attention so far.
Powered by a dark, heavy backdrop courtesy of producer Alexonweed, Drew employs a sing-songy flow to issue out his verbal threats. In other words, consider this the T-Dot equivalent of DeJ Loaf’s “Try Me:” it’s both unassumingly menacing and unforgettably catchy, and could put Drew on a map larger than his Canadian boundaries.
