DRACO has been writing poetry since he was around 7. Originally wanting to be in a punk rock band when he was a teenager, (That dream came true later in life as a studio band project with Steve Sxaks & Ethan Mintz Of Marsten House Recordings Called Damn Dirty Commies) but it translated into rap when he was about 18. Without any professional studio equipment at first. But that didn’t matter, his need to be heard endured.
He went by many different names before landing on DRACO, Including: The Unabomber, Draco The Unabomber and probably like 10 other ones he forgot about, (or tries to forget about)
His musical influences are:
DMX, Wu Tang Clan, The Misfits, and Twiztid. And growing up un the golden age of the Philly Punk Rock Scene (Early 2000’s).
And local Horrorcore and Hip Hop Artists. Some other notable influences are the Gothic and Industrial acts that would feature at local events.
His personal influences are struggles with mental illness, and a drifting outsider perspective, which both play a role in the darker nature of his work. But in contrast to those darker elements, his Judaism, being around Anti-Fascist Activists, and the afroqueer community has given DRACO a uniquely balanced personal perspective.
With over a decade in the music industry whether it’s performing music, DJing for several horrorcore/underground rap radio stations (WICKED INTENT RADIO, TKSRADIO, UTMRADIO) or writing articles for several media outlets (MortalGore, OOGEEWOOGEE, Oy Gevault!, etc.) DRACO has become an undeniable fixture in the Hardcore Hip Hop and Horrorcore Rap Scene. Last but not least, in 2021, DRACO started his own music publishing and media company called Grey6 Media, a co-label to Marsten House Records that distributes through Sony/The Orchard.
