Poorly Drawn People


poorly drawn people

Poorly Drawn People vocalist Storm Davis recommended I holler at Pat Riley about the “3-Peat” patent as Poorly Drawn People get thrice as nice, taking the Best Rap Act crown for the third consecutive year. It’s pretty damn hard to argue, especially since dropping their latest full-length release, Motion Not Emotion, the springtime follow-up to the hefty mixtape Shoot for the Stars, Hit the Ceiling, which included personal favorite “No Interruptions” (old-timers will appreciate the Grand Daddy I.U. sample). Dope Motion cuts “Celebrity Rehab,” “Might Blow Up, Might Go Pop,” and “Stress Filled Days” are proof-positive that PDP remains calibrated on the target. With Storm and Reason on the mic, DOX on the boards, and cuts from legendary ’RIU radio host DJ Sterbyrock, Poorly Drawn People is an undeniable force on a Rhode Island rap scene currently peppered with top-shelf talent.
