Like any good big baby, DRAM has love for the childhood gems. Rugrats and Pokémon get a shout-out, as they should. “Tommy Pickles from Rugrats,” reflects DRAM. “I mean I fuckin’ love that show. I was there from day one. It’s really dope to get that perspective, he was just like a fuckin’ leader. He didn’t have all the tools, but was gonna figure it out somehow.” He goes on to recount some his favorite episodes with a staggering attention to detail, including an eloquent breakdown an Angelica-centric nightmare sequence. Respect it.

Upon receiving a binder full OG Pokémon cards, DRAM can barely contain his excitement. “I should get back on my shit,” he laughs. “I used to have a binder, sixth grade…I love Squirtle, that whole thing going with Blastoise….Pidgeot! I had a Pidgeot!” He goes on to talk about the fateful Christmas 99′, when he and his brother both received a pack Pokemon cards. “He had one with a Bulbasaur on the cover, I picked the one with the Charizard. Lesson learned. Judgin’ a book by its cover gets you nothing. I got nothin’ but a fuckin’ Beedrill, and it wasn’t even holographic. My brother got a Charizard. A holographic Charizard. God damn…I was mortified.”
