Drip Stone’s ‘What I Do’ Started Out as A Joke Between Cousins
A hip-hop and R&B artist based in Brooklyn, New York, Drip Stone grew up in the ‘90s era of music. His musical talent and sound both come from growing up in a diverse neighborhood in East Flatbush. Both of his parents have different backgrounds: Jamaican, Puerto Rican, and Native American.
This experience has helped craft his creative and versatile style, that he regularly entertains his fans with. It’s also what makes him unique and what attracts people to him. With this, Drip Stone’s sound is a mix of old school lyrics with new school melodies. There is something to appreciate in Drip Stone’s music for everyone, especially any hip-hop heads.
Drip Stone’s latest single ‘What I Do’ is in collaboration with his cousin Tadow. He based the song on real events, where both guys involved were bored and started inviting girls over who were in relationships. They started hanging out and playing cards, until one of the girls’ boyfriends called Tadow and asked what is his girlfriend doing at his place. Tadow jokingly replied, “That’s just what I do”. They kept laughing at that joke all night long and decided to make a song about it.
As far as production goes, he works with different producers but mostly goes with DJ Direct. When you have a connection, you have a connection. These two sound too good together.
When Drip Stone writes, he creates the hook after finding an instrumental that he likes. It’s important to him that the hook comes before the verses, as that’s the most important part.
“I like to be alone when I write — that’s where I’m at my best.”
