Logansport hip-hop artist tours for bullying awareness

A Logansport man is using his talents in rap and hip-hop music to speak out against bullying across the Midwest.

Adron Robinson, or A1 da Last Drop as he’s known musically, started taking music seriously in 2007, a year after moving to Logansport. The Cape Coral, Fla., native said he experimented with music in the past with friends during his time in the U.S. Army but took time off for a while before creating mix tapes and making an effort to prepare radio-ready music.

“My music is my truths, my life and the world as I see it,” Robinson said, adding that his songs fall into the genres of hip-hop and hip-rock.

In the summer of 2012, Robinson was approached by former St. Louis, Mo artist and producer kCAne MarkCO, owner of NuORder ENTertainmENT. Robinson joined the group, which represents artists all over the country.

Shortly after Robinson joined NuORder, MarkCO teamed up with Oliver “DjBigO317” Jackson, owner of South Bend and Indianapolis-based Trucker Bangin Ent. LLC, to use music to address bullying in what they would come to call the Anti-Bullying Bully Basher Tour.

“They came up with the idea watching the news and just staying up on everything that’s going on,” Robinson said. “They came to us [and said], ‘Look, everybody wants to be focused with this music, well let’s put this music toward something to help out the people. Get out there and speak out, get out there and go talk to some of these kids that have been bullied …’ We were all down for it.”

The tour kicked off in February, hitting schools and colleges in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri and other states across the Midwest. It’s most recent stop was May 10 at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend.

A typical tour stop will consist of performances, individual lectures where performers will share their own experiences with bullies and meet-and-greets after the show, Robinson said.

“We can make a change as far as kids go,” Jackson said. “When they hear them say, ‘I was a victim of being bullied,’ the gym goes quiet. They’re big dudes. The kids could kind of relate. It doesn’t matter what size you are, it happens to everybody. It doesn’t make a difference what you are, if you’re new, if you’re a freshman; there are people who have nothing better to do than bully.”

When Robinson speaks to students about his own experiences with bullies, he tells them about growing up in Cape Coral, Fla., where he said his small stature and minority status led to him being a target for tormentors.

“Right now, I’m 6 feet, 185 pounds,” Robinson said. “When I was younger, it took a while before I hit my growth spurt. I was always one of the smaller children … Me and a few of the Hispanic people were minorities and we got picked on. We got jumped at the school bus, we got chased by people in trucks with bats.”

While Robinson affirms there are times when one may be forced to defend him or herself, he said physicality should always be a last resort.

“I came to recognize that most bullies were some of the most scared people,” he said. “They lacked a lot of confidence. They might have had a bad home life so they take it out on other people.”

The tour will continue into the summer, with upcoming stops in Washington, D.C., Kokomo, Cleveland, Ohio, and New York City.

Robinson will also be performing in a Thanks-A-Million Military Appreciation Showcase in collaboration with The Anti-Bullying Bully Basher Tour at the Logansport Eagles Saturday, June 1. The show will be 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Robinson said he is currently looking for more acts to add to the show and any interested parties can contact him at 574-398-7401.

You can check out Robinson’s music at mtv.com/artists/a1-da-last-drop and by visiting nervedjsmixtapes.com and clicking on Hip-hop under the Mix tapes section. He performs on a mix tape titled “NuOrder The Mixtape.”

“To me, my music is one of the best things I have to give the world,” Robinson said. “If I can’t use that in a positive way, then I’d feel like I was wasting it.”
