This is the key to time management – to see the value of every moment. -Menachem Mendel Schneerson
Anyone in the music industry will tell you that it takes a lot of hard work and discipline to make it to the top. CallMeDrop, a Woodbridge Va. emcee, is no different.
Aside from making music, CallMeDrop is a full-time college student and works full-time as an I.T. Engineering Consultant. Drop explained how juggling work, school and music is a difficult task but is necessary to get all his goals accomplished.
“You have to do what ever you can,” said Drop over the phone. “Sometimes I have to do my homework in the studio. It lets me know that time is very important and makes me want to press even harder.”
Drop first started rapping at 17-years-old. He wrote stories and plays while in High School which Drop claims helped him step outside himself and be more creative with his lyrics.
CallMeDrop put the mic down for four-years when he enlisted in the Army after High School. Drop claimed the Army helped him learn to make smarter decisions when he began writing music again upon discharge.
Drop is currently working on a new project called “The Slide Show: The Walk Through” which is set to be released late July. It is a sequel to his previously released project, “The Slide Show: The Set Up.”
“The Set Up told who I was, The Walk Through tells who I am now,” said Drop.
As an emcee, Drop’s main goal is to be authentic with his music.
“Today the music industry is more about who you know than talent,” said Drop. “That’s okay, because I’m still making quality music for people.”
