What Does It Mean To Be A Champion Man?
To be a champion man means to go the distance to do whats right. It means taking responsibility as a man and making it your duty to be the best at everything you put your mind to.
What Key Values Do You Live By?
I believe too much of anything isn't good. You need to balance things out so your life has the fulfillment you deserve. If you work, you need to play. If you eat healthy you need an unhealthy snack now and then. If you find fault in someones work also let them know what you love about it. Balance is a big part of my life.
To achieve greatness you have to challenge yourself. You have to do what most don't want to do if you're going to achieve what most don't have.
You must live your life with purpose and set goals. Be determined to reach those goals no matter what obstacles come on your path. I'm determined to be a great father. I'm determined to be a great friend. I'm determined to reach my goals in music no matter how hard it gets or how long it takes. The power of determination is amazing. Stick to it and be consistent.
You have to believe in what you want 100% and know deep down inside that what you want is already yours.
What Daily Habits Developed Your Inner Champion Most?
Stick to your guns.
Try to understand what the next man is going through.
Don't let negativity take you off your path. Don't listen to people that doubt you. Take advice from successful people you respect and that understand your field.
What Did You Learn From Your Biggest Challenges In Life?
What I learned from my biggest challenges in life is that you only lose when you quit.

Dru follows his heart. He knows his values and he doesn't waver from them. The music industry is a tough industry and it can be easy to fall away from your true self. Dru is a great example of being real through it all and holding that as a high value.
