Dreezy Snaps Some Portraits For Blurred Culture At Pitchfork Music Festival
“…I was able to catch Chitown rapper and singer Dreezy’s interview on the tail-end of JPEGMAFIA’s set, which was right across from the radio station.
Someday (hopefully soon), society will drop the “female” prefix and simply call the ladies of hip hop rappers. But for now, women still have to put in double work to earn respect. Dreezy’s invitation to J. Cole’s Dreamville recording camp and placement on the ensuing album Revenge of the Dreamers III proves she’s got moxie.
343 artists and producers were invited, and only 5 of the 62 placed on the final project were women. She called the unstructured sessions “survival of the fittest,” and from what I gathered through the official film, she wasn’t exaggerating. Those who waited for permission to jump in the booth didn’t get far.
Her latest album Big Dreez was full of bangers; “Chanel Slides” is the type of song you put on during the last 3 minutes of an Uber ride to ensure you don’t get your aux privileges revoked on the next night out. But Dreezy’s music isn’t all about the turn-up. She has serious lyrical prowess and a soulful side, too. Fingers crossed that Pitchfork brings her back next year…”
