Early Life and Family
Drippy Dru was born Andrew Munoz on June 6, 1997 in Corpus Christi, Texas. Drippy grew up in the east side of Corpus Christi, predominately with his father Andy Munoz. His mother and father separated when Drippy was just four years old. His father Andy recieved full custody of Drippy during that time and bolstered his confidence with the help of his grandma Lydia Lerma, step-mother Corina Castillo Hernandez, brothers Devon Munoz, Izeck Deleon and sisters Alexis Munoz, Raven Hernandez, and Raelynn Hernandez and new born son Drew Anthony Munoz. “They’ve been there for me since I could remember”.
Drippy first rapped in his father’s garage studio at the age of 11 years old when his fathers friend was working on a song. The instrumentals and beats were made from scratch on a beat making board and he would write his own lyrics. It was until Drippy Dru attended Wynn Seale Middle School when he started to share his dreams of being a rapper named “Baby Boy”.
Launch of Career
In the height of the pandemic of April 2021, Drippy Dru had just finished wrapping up the song “Numb To It” when he had become a seasoned rap artist without the baby image. Since he was 23 years old and had rapped for several years, Drippy Dru’ and the production team decided to give him the new name. He took part in concerts such as Summer Meltdown at Concrete Street Amphitheater with performances beside Erica Banks, Beat King, and Houston rapper Kirko Bangz. He delivered a confident, hyped, and in-control performance that earned attention from local critics. His father was impressed, but also constructively gave him advice to become a better performer so that Drippy would become more serious in his career.
Drippy Dru is currently working on his album ‘Couture Music’ and is expected to drop in January 2022 in all digital platforms with digital hard copies for in person meet and greets. With the help of his father’s hard work ethic and Drippy’s rising rap stardom, he juggles with also a rising smoke shop on Ayers Street. “I just have to balance out the both, but with the help of management and the people working for me, they make it much easier” says Drippy.
