The "FDB" rapper believes Atlanta's swag and sauce is what makes it such an influential place in the game of Hip-Hop, citing household Atlanta names like Andre 3000 and T.I. to further his point.

"[Atlanta's] like the mecca of music, so I feel like Atlanta is all over the building. You gotta' come through Atlanta to have that sauce," he said.

Dro also shared that the 1993 track, "Gotta Get Mine" by M.C. Reed and Tupac was the first song to make him fall in love with Hip-Hop.
