This February, we’re celebrating all the black community has given us with programing from some of America’s most notable voices, from the artists that have shaped our world to the young talent who are making history today.

All month long, we will also reflect on  how musical lineage and influence impact current music, and looking to the future by looking back at the soundtrack that leads it by asking some of our favorite artists who inspires their music. Check out Dreezy’s response below, and stay tuned for more musical inspirations throughout February.
