Back in 2014, the Chicago rapper burst onto the scene with her viral take on Nicki Minaj and Lil Herb’s “Chiraq.” She was subsequently named the “Princess of Chicago Rap” and signed with Interscope Records. In 2016 she released her debut album No Hard Feelings which focused on self-work and boasted some impressive features from the likes of Gucci Mane, Wale, Jeremih, and T-Pain.
When it came time for her next project, Dreezy once again proved not only was she talented, but she was versatile. Last month she dropped Big Dreez, giving us dope, playful, and confident bangers like “Chanel Slides” featuring KashDoll and “RIP Aretha,” while also giving us sleek and sultry songs like “Ecstasy” with her “Body”-collaborator, Jeremih.
Dreezy can rap and she can sing, but she’s not stopping at music. She’s set to appear in BET’s Boomerang reboot and co-star in an upcoming Netflix film Beats alongside Anthony Anderson.
Given her range, what does her process look like?
“When I’m in the studio sometimes I just like to listen to the beat and just like to get the vibe for it,” she told Fuse. “When I get the vibe I just start writing.“
She recently stopped by to try out some ASMR. Watch the whole video to see what magic Dreezy drums up with a notepad and marker, balloons, and her own lyrics.
