HOOD ENVIRONMENT Est. 2007
Hailing from the infamous birthplace of hip-hop, the Boogie Down (Bronx, NY)
Rapper/Actor Drag-On has used his intrinsic talents since the age of 8, when he began penning his rhymes. He steadily kept building his creative craft and ultimately blazed onto the hip-hop scene in 2000, as one of the original artists under the renowned Ruff Ryders Entertainment imprint, via which Interscope Records released his debut album, called Opposite of H2O. That CD solidly established his place in hip-hop, debuting at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 500,000 copies and earning a Gold certification from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
Drag-On’s sophomore album was the Virgin Records release Hell and Back in 2004. When that CD failed to perform like his debut one, and he departed Virgin.
Then, in 2007 he signed a recording contract with his longtime friend and former Ruff Ryders labelmate Swizz Beatz’s Full Surface Records.
The acting bug bit Drag-On in 2001, and he has demonstrated his cinematic strengths by appearing in the films Exit Wounds (2001) and Cradle 2 The Grave (2003), both of which starred his former Ruff Ryders labelmate, rapper/actor DMX.
Drag-On began his own record label in early 2014, called Hood Environment. The debut offering from his label is his Summer 2014 single, “It’s A Movie.” These days, Drag-On lives in the studio, honing his expressive hip-hop chops.
Like his name looks, a dragon is a strong, powerful, mythical character. Somewhat of the same can be said for Drag-On – he’s strong and powerful, but make no mistake about it, he and his considerable talents are no myth – he’s as real as they come. Don’t sleep on Drag-On.
