Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Former DaBhann Member Michael “Sparkey” Drakes Is Back With A New Single That Is A Tribute To George Floyd And The Black Lives Matter Campaign

Michael is a Caribbean singer who believes that music and its style can be turned at a three sixty if conscious and meaningful lyrics are added to tunes. He believes that the lyrics of his music set with a unique tone and beat will set his music apart. He wants the readers to feel his music but in a unique way.

New York, New York  – Date---------- Michael Drakes was born in Guyana which is in South America but because of South America’s ties to the British rule, the residents of Guyana are referred to as part of the Caribbean and therefore their musical style is intertwined in the region. Michael sings soca along with ragga soca, dancehall, and reggae. Michael is gifted with a baritone voice which is suited for ragga-soca and dancehall.

Michael wrote and sang the song “Can’t breathe” himself. The song was initially released for the public, when Michael participated in an online event on July 6, 2020. The song is a beautiful mixture of a dancehall tune with conscious and meaningful lyrics. The unique mixture of music that Michael comes up with sets him apart from musicians that create music in the soca and ragga-soca genre.

Michael has written a song on the outbreak of COVID – 19 around the world. The song is a blend of calypso and soca; the musical tunes make it touching and appealing to the heart.

Michael plans on releasing a new solo album tentatively in 2022. He intends on making soca a renowned genre in the music industry and to work for the category with all of his passion.
