The night at E.L’s BAR2 concert when he performed All Black would have to be it for me.Even before the show i met people who would spaz after finding out i was Drumroll (Thanks to Kuvie). I even overheard people say they came to the show because of “All Black”.
Then that beat i produced in the corner of my living room with an earpiece started playing… the whole building went ballistic. I was at the top floor watching people that were outside roll back in, the screams, comments like “Herh this track, EL do all, Drumroll be sick”. You could barely hear El, Pappy & Joey’s voices as the crowd practically recited all three verses through each hook & chorus.
Never a more accomplishing moment so far in my journey as a producer.Drumroll
This year my most cherished accomplishment would be releasing my KING RIDDIM and making it known to my fans .
Secondly , i was also on Coptic’s album this year (Rising Stars Of GH Vol. IV).
