For a lot of producers, even with big credits, producing can be a side hustle. This is not the case with the producer I am interviewing in this article. For Drumdummie this is a real business.
He hasn’t produced a big hit yet, which is surprising to me because his beats sound perfect for a breakaway hit from the south. Even though he might not have charted on billboard, he is one of those producers putting up serious numbers online;
- 22 Million + views on YouTube.
- 62, 000 + subscribers on YouTube
- Number 6 on the Airbit top 100 producers for the last 7 days
- Number 9 on the Airbit top 100 producers for the last 30 days
- Number 21 on the Airbit top 100 producers “All Time” list
Get my point now?
