The upstate New York rapper Jamie Drastik celebrated the release of his mixtape Champagne and Cocaine at the Greenhouse nightclub in Soho. The drizzling rain had no effect on the celebrities, TV reality stars, and fans that came out to support the recently signed Mr. 305 artist. Bodies were bouncing, tables toppled with bottles, and flashing lights did no justice to capture the celebration on Varrick Street. When Drastik hit the stage to give the crowd a taste of his mixtape, he did not disappoint. Very much a performer as he is a talented musician, hands were swaying, there was not one body seated during his performance. The party continued into the early morning with Kid Capri in the DJ booth spinning hit after hit.
Drastik’s previous mixtape, The Magnet, was ranked amongst the Top 10 mixtapes of 2010 on Thisis50.com. If that is a foreshadowing of Champagne and Cocaine’s success, 2011 looks very promising for Jamie Drastik. Already set to go on a 40-date tour with Pitbull this summer, Drastik is not slowing down. Be on the look out for his singles “One Hundred and Ten” featuring Fat Joe and “Save Me” featuring Pitbull, from the Champagne and Cocaine mixtape, which will be dropping soon.
