OneTakeDrew

Like many up-and-coming Ethiopian-American artists, OneTakeDrew is a rapper out of the DMV area. Based in Alexandria, VA, Drew began taking rap seriously a few years back, following his remix of Wale’s “Ambition.” Since then, many other remixes followed, and Drew ended up opening for Erykah Badu, Ab-Soul, and Stalley. In 2016, he released his first tape Ventilation, which landed him on Joe Budden’s podcast.

Born from an Ethiopian mother and an African-American father, Drew’s mother left Ethiopia at the age of 3, due to the country’s then-communist regime. While he’s never been to Ethiopia, Drew plans to take a trip there sometime soon.

“Doro wot is the shit,” admits Drew. “It’s probably one of my favorite dishes on Earth. Above all else though, I love the sense of camaraderie I feel in the Ethiopian community from complete strangers. It gives me a sense of pride, so when I hit a milestone or achieve something it’s not just for me. It’s for the entire community.”
