GUEST STAR: D.R.A.M
Virginia-born rapper D.R.A.M (which stands for Does Real Ass Music) has been nominated for a Grammy, endorsed by Beyoncé and has a dog called Idnit – the cutest hip-hop canine since Lil’ Bow Wow. Last year he scored a top 5 hit with ‘Broccoli’, then dropped the classic ‘Cash Machine’. So wanna find out what he’s up to ATM? Please welcome the puppy, veggie and money enthusiast to TRACE Urban.

GUEST STAR: CRIS CAB
Cris Cab’s rise to fame began at the age of 15 when he met Pharrell Williams, who became his mentor – which means that Cris sees even more of Pharrell than the general public does. Combining pop, soul and reggae, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter has already worked with the likes of Wyclef Jean and Big Sean. Don’t miss this exclusive interview with the ‘Liar Liar’ singer. He’s on fire!
