Welcome to MikeDrastic.com!
MikeDrastic is a hip-hop artist who brings elements of rock, blues, and funk to his diverse catalog of styles. At 6’4” 300 lbs, his physical stature combined with the raw growl he injects into his lyrics demands attention no matter where he goes. Part philosopher and part storyteller, MikeDrastic weaves together a musical narrative that draws on life experiences of overcoming challenges with sheer will, revealing an artist who is talented, intelligent, and genuine. Born into a military family in Dayton, Ohio, he spent his youth moving across the US taking in the varied sides of Americana—glossy “all-American” suburbs to the grim realities of inner city neighborhoods—extremes that taught him tolerance, street smarts, and the value of forward momentum.
He’s shared the stage with names such as Everlast, Shella (Ruff Ryders), Sir Mix-A-Lot, Digital Underground, P.I.D., 3rd Nail Productions (MG! The Visionary), Dynamic Twins, and T-Bone. and has performed in California, Washington State, BC Canada, Saudi Arabia, and Italy. His new self-titled album, contains 11 songs showcases his wide range of abilities from those that rock the spot (“I Told U”, “Feelin This”, “3Shots”, “ShowStopper”); his theme song for his motorcycle riding family, the famous Ruff Ryders of DMX and Eve fame (Hate/Love/Respect); to deep tracks that inspire reflection and emotion (“The Road”, ”Flight”,”Some Days”, “Lanterns In The Sky”); to controversial subjects such as the Illuminati (“Down”); and finally, fuses his personal experiences into a fictitious tale of a man driven over the edge (“Worst Side of Me”). A powerhouse of musical style, including lending his own vocal talents to choruses and backgrounds, MikeDrastic is a lyricist whose fans willingly succumb to his primal lullaby. Part chrome and grit biker, part urban street saavy hiphop artist – the world has never experienced a persona such as his before.
