Q&A With Netherlands Rising Hip Hop Native Dragan

We are extremely excited to have featured your debut album “Road to Balkan”,  being a Hip Hop artist we never of heard before this, please tell us who is Dragan? What part of the Netherlands are you from?  How did your music career come about?

First of all, thanks for this opportunity!  I’m a Balkan Emcee from a town in the south of the land called Heerlen. Born in former Yugoslavia, I moved to the Netherlands when I was four and a half. Growing up with the Balkan culture, I discovered Hip-Hop around twelve. When I started rapping at sixteen, I was always seeking for a way to merge my roots with the Hip-Hop culture. After years of developing, experimenting, studying, crafting, I realised three years ago that my main focus had to be on English songwriting and recording. The way I combine the two cultures I grew up with makes me unique.

Let us know about the creative process behind your debut album  “Road to Balkan”?

Road to Balkan started as a step to connect deeper with my motherland. Later I realised that Balkan also stands for something else. Becoming A Lyrical King Amazing Narrator. This is something I have to put my stamp on. Therefor I’m glad you pointed out my focus on lyricism.

How often do you perform live?  Any plans for a tour?

First I like to expand my reach before I focus on touring. Soon as the time is right I will jump on this horse.

Where do you see yourself in 5yrs?

I see myself building my empire in the coming years. Investing in my family and home towns.

When are you planning on dropping another project in 2019?

Currently I’m in the process of finishing my next album Yugo Manifesto. This piece will come out within 4 and 7 months.

With this being an underground hip hop site, we always ask this important question. What is your definition of “underground hip hop”?

Underground Hip-Hop for me is the core of the culture.

Dragan – “Road to Balkan” (Album Review)

The impact Hip Hop has had on the world since day one has been undeniable, especially outside the U.S. The love, emulation, and imitation for Hip Hop overseas is addictive to foreigners. Birthing countless aspiring new artists like Netherlands’ Dragan, eager to cement their name next to the idols. Ready to have his name among the stars, the aspiring artist unveils his debut project, titled, Road to Balkan.

On the debut, Dragan develops a 12-track offering inspired by a vintage history of Golden Age Hip Hop. Embarking on a journey of self-reflection and promises to do amazing things with music, Dragan is eager to join the game and shine.

Dragan first attempt is nothing short of trial and error. 12 tracks, Dragan easily understands the basics with subject matter about his life filled with mental stability, worldly issues, and messages of overcoming adversity. Nothing radical, while playing it safe with trendy lyrics, the production chameleons the novice level entry.

Like his accent, the project’s production is unique thanks to the use of foreign bass and curious blues. The production is deep with experience and works in the star’s favor. Developed a strong presence with the instrumental, making the road to Balkan, streets of gold. Tailor-made, Dragan’s sound is genuine, organic, and amusing.

For the first effort, Dragan is a work in progress but occasionally enjoyable. The language barrier may disrupt from time to time but is excused by the artist’s undoubted creativity. Making a debut gives him a lot of leeway and opportunity for a second date; however, on the second go-round, Dragan will have to deliver a standing ovation.

Rating: 7/10
