5 Questions with DJ Drowzzzy Drew
Drowzzzy Drew is a super dope DJ we met on the set of The Fixxx Audiocast @ Dash Radio in Hollywood. His passion for music was evident from the first time I heard him spinning so when he told me he was ready to get some professional head shots, I could only think of one perfect place to capture them: the corner of Wilshire & Fairfax which is home to the Petersen Automotive Museum, The Urban Lights at LACMA, and also the exact corner where Hip-Hop legend Notorious BIG or Biggie Smalls got shot.
After our head shot photo shoot, we also got to ask Drowzzzy Drew a couple questions.
