I personally couldn’t be happier for the homey Jamie Drastik. If you’ve checked out the interview he did on my site you should know I’ve seen his career go from being an aspiring emcee to signing with arguably one of the hottest artists in the game Pitbull. As he’s been on the road and performing, it should should be known he has quite possibly the biggest hit of his young career so far with the song “White Boy Wasted”.
With all that said, here’s an important message from Jamie;
As some of you know my first single was released on iTunes yesterday. White Boy Wasted was a record that I would perform on the Planet Pit Tour as direct support for Flo Rida and Pitbull. I was noticing that the crowd was chanting the chorus after the first time they heard it. I let Pitbull know, “hey I think we might have one” and showed him video footage of the crowd chanting “PARTY IN MY BASEMENT”. He agreed and said lets work on it tonight at the hotel. We did some arranging to the record and he mixed n matched different parts of the songs together to make it even better.

We all agreed on a final version and hit the next city to perform it. After the tour was finished we came home and got the paper work together to release the song. My fans would inquire about the song’s release on a daily basis which only made me more excited to get the record up and available to them. Well, yesterday April 17th 2012 White Boy Wasted was released on iTunes and the buzz on it was way more than expected. Sales started coming in faster and faster. I am extremely thankful to my fans that support me, and I would like to literally call and thank each and everyone myself. I know some of you have children who listen to my music so I would love to say a quick hello to them as well if you’d like. Anyone who purchases White Boy Wasted from Tuesday April 17th – Friday April 20th can e-mail a image of their purchase and send their phone number to TeamJamieDrastik@gmail.com. I would like to personally call each and everyone of you and say thank you! You have no idea what your support means to me, and I’d like to let you know.
Email a image of your purchase and the best number and times to reach you to TeamJamieDrastik@gmail.com
I will be doing the calls this weekend.
