According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America -- one out of every three -- live in biological father-absent homes.
K-Drama transparently raps about the effects of growing up without his Dad consistently in his life. Despite his upbringing, he encourages those in a similar predicament to know God will be a Father to the fatherless & nobody has to follow in the footsteps of their absent father.
This is the 1st single from K-Drama's upcoming EP, Whetherman, scheduled to release August 2014.

(Cincinnati, OH) April 30th, 2014- K-Drama is releasing his 2nd project post his departure from Cross Movement Records, titled, Wish It Was Sooner. A follow-up to K-Drama’s critically acclaimed, Winds & .Waves, Wish It Was Sooner, is a 12 track anthology of unreleased songs recorded between 2005-2013. There is a unique story behind the delay or omitting of each track from previous projects; “Dealing With Pain,” featuring Dre Murray, was one of the first songs prepared for a duo album the two were working on in 2007 while, "Came Along Way," was submitted to Holy Hip Hop Music for the Behind The Glory project, but not used. Wish It Were Sooner, will also have guest appearances from Pettidee, Bumps Inf, Young Joshua & Charde Jones, as well as production credits from Tone Jonez, B of 4Sight Sounds & K-Drama himself.
Wish It Were Sooner, doesn't deviate from K-Drama's topical norms, his transparent, introspective verses shine throughout this project. He candidly speaks about the politics & disappointments he’s experienced in the Christian Rap genre on, “My Life Is Humbling;” his struggle with time management on, “So Many Distractions;” and urbanizes a version of the 150th Psalm on, “Excellent Greatness”. Sonically, this collection follows K-Drama's signature sound, bass-heavy soundscapes with bright synth-driven melodies.
This album will be available for free download, May 12th, 2014. The 1st single, “Stadium Praise Varsity Remix," is garnering great reviews. A busy summer is ahead for K-Drama, including a promo tour within the United States, aiding his artist and wife, Charde Jones with the production of her debut album, and completing a free EP consisting of all new music entitled, Whetherman, all scheduled to release summer 2014.
Announcing the debut single by my wife Charde Jones. Listen as she begs the question, "Is It Worth It?" Are the moments of temporary satisfaction worth the pain you subject yourself and others to in the long run? She hopes that listeners are challenged to rethink unhealthy patterns and inspired to look to Christ for renewal and change.
