When it comes to Hip-Hop many people don’t think of Topeka, Kansas as being a place to bring the heat, but native Dre-Roc has set out to disprove that theory.
An artist/mixing engineer who’s been making music with some well-known artists including Bizzy, Jay Hype, and Tech N9ne, Dre-Roc decided to step back into the arena of an artist after more than a two-year hiatus, dropping two new singles, while continuing to bridge the gap of experience and new sounds to the music of others.
“I could always make my own music” Dre-Roc stated. “But I find it more meaningful to share and teach the beauty of music to others”.
In regards to why Kansas is still very slept on when it comes to being cited as bringing the noise to the mainstream, Dre-Roc says that approach and timing plays a huge part.
“Approach. The approach is everything. I’m in love with the process, not just the end result,” he continued. “People don’t realize that [Topeka] and the Midwest overall is up to speed and growing, but highly slept on.”
If the two releases are a glimpse of what the Midwest can bring to the table, it seems like we all need to be all ears.
