Dru James “The Polynesian LL Cool J”
That’s Him – Pistallion, Angel Deesky, Dru James
Dru James is a Polynesian hip hop artist out of San Jose, California. His image, sound and style are very unique, but he’s been compared to one of hip hop’s icons and is known as the “Polynesian LL Cool J”. His sound is a mixture of Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop and is a cross between Flo Rida and LL Cool J. He has some catchy hooks that you just can’t get out of your head. Unlike alot of underground artists today he’s very versatile, his music has the potential to reach the mainstream and a multi cultural audience and he already has a strong Polynesian fan base. It was destined for him to be in music from a child with influential relatives from Christian sensational group the Katina Brothers, rap group the Boo-ya tribe and top selling rap artist cousin from Australia Monsta Ganjah. Music has always been his passion with that kind of family footsteps to follow in. I got the honor of dj’n for him when he performed in Alaska at Club Millennium and he was very involved in every aspect of his show. Alot of artist’s do not have good show’s or come prepared to put on a show and have their music show ready for the dj, Not Dru! You can tell he is very passionate about his music and knows how to put on a great show and he definitely gave the fans an awesome show. Watching & listening to him you can feel his life experiences in the music he makes and story’s he tells at his shows.
Dru James has been writing and performing for a while now and has been a supporting act and host for Brian McKnight, Jon B, Bobby Valentino, Slim from 112, UB40, Tarrus Riley, Fiji, JBoog, and other artists. He’s also toured this past year with Hawaii’s hottest band “Common Kings”. He has music placements as a writer in two films, “We the Party” starring Mario Van Peebles and one other currently in negotiations for other film projects and video games. Be on the lookout for his upcoming Ep and more great music from him. He’s one artist you don’t want to sleep on!
“I hope to influence the world with uptempo beats, smooth melodies and smart lyrics that will inspire the youngest to oldest listener. My goal is to reach the top and I won’t stop until I get there and my music is heard throughout the world. With my success I hope to be able to inspire young people and open a facility for underprivileged youth that will provide a safe and supportive environment to help them accomplish their dreams. Ultimately my goal is to leave a legacy in music and make a difference while doing it. So one day when I’m gone, everyone will know….Dru James was here”
