Could Drama Squad be North Carolina’s Best Kept Secret? Maybe they used to be but the secrets out now. Carolina and beyond are starting to stand up and pay attention to this young hungry group of talented lyricists from Enfield, NC. With a nomination for group of the year, the hard work and street grind these boy are putting in is finally starting to pay off.
When you hear the word “Drama” what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Well, if you are referring to Enfield, North Carolina’s own Drama Squad you would think of Underestimated, Unintimidated, Most Anticipated, and Highly Educated. Coming from a small town plagued by poverty, drug abuse, and violence inspired a group of young men to proceed in life on a different path by way of song. Drama Squad consists of Q Duece, J-Smash, K-Rich, J-Play, Killa Kel, Killa Key and Dreadful Dre and they hail from Enfield, NC and surrounding areas. Drama Squad have been featured on several artists mixtapes throughout NC & other areas as well as their own mixtapes “Da Wait Is Ova: Back In Business”, “Strictly Business”, then hooking up with Shady/Aftermath’s DJ Woogie they put out a mixtape entitled “Sippin Southern 6.5” which is currently making heatwaves in the streets. This year comes a brand new album entitled “Coming of Age”. The 2010 video for the single “Ready For War” featuring Hugg E. Bear was Produced by Illy Rock with 9 gripping minutes of serious Drama and seriously good music certainly caught attention and opened the eyes of fans everywhere. The song itself, powerful and incredibly mature when combined with breathtaking cinematic vision announced the superb talent of both Drama Squad and the underground videography skills of Parallel Jets/TSGS Films.
