A. Driver is an artist from Norfolk, Up South. I'm an M.C. living in a rappers world who's trying to make it to the mainstream without being corny lol.
How did you get started with music?
I got started battling & being in cyphers in middle school. After seeing how people took to me I just went all in with the music & I've beenworking ever since.
For people who have never heard your music, what is one thing you want them to know?
That I'm NICE lol. Seriously though, I want people to know that I'm on my shit. I can rap & I'm good at it.
What is your dream team? (Producers, singers, directors, etc.)
My dream team would be a team full of Virgina talent. I would want to do a project with work from Tim, Missy, Teddy, Lex Luger, Bink, Nottz, DanjaHandz, & The Neptunes on it. All of my features would be from Va artist also. The Clipse, Trey, Chris Brown, DMP, etc... That joint would be classic.
Scenario: the time has come for you to record your LAST song, what would be the topic? And who would produce it?
It would be about inner city kids over coming their current living situation(s) because their survival & overall prosperity will help shape the world. I would want the youth to know that just because shit isn't right doesn't mean you have to live life that way. I believe you can be in this world but not of it so I would preach positivity & prosperity. On the production side I would have to go to Bink so I could get that soul & pain & he's from Norfolk so I'm biased lol.
You've been rapping for a while now can you give us one memory or moment that made you realize you were succeeding?
I was at home & my mother called me. She was at the hair salon & a girl asked her if she knew A. Driver. The girl asked her if she knew me because my mother's hair dresser called her Mrs. Driver. It was crazy because shorty noticed my mother's name & put two & two together. When people start to recognize your name that let's you know you're doing something. Especially here.
What can we expect from A. Driver in the future?
Great music. I pray for a classic album & a major hit but if I don't get that I'm always gonna provide very strong music.
