The Draco is a gun in the midst of a spike in popularity. Https://pewpew.in It’s a baby AK-47 that has become frequently namechecked in rap in only a few years. From Vince Staples and 21 Savage to Gucci Mane and Yo Gotti, references to the firearm have been popping up all over, and the weapon is becoming inescapable. Sada Baby has rapped that he’ll “do a Harlem Shake” with one. References to the pistol appear on his recent mixtape, Bartier Bounty, more than a dozen times across 10 songs.

“I think people just like Dracos because they like the name,” says rapper and producer Quelle Chris, whose upcoming album, Guns, ponders our society’s obsession with firearms. “It rolls off the tongue like Hennessy.” Dracos aren’t weapons of necessity; they’re weapons of spectacle. “Don’t nobody necessarily need an automatic weapon,” he adds. Dracos have become placeholder objects in rap lyrics and thus a self-perpetuating phenomenon. “Rather than say any other particular type of gun, you say Draco,” Quelle Chris says. “And now you need Dracos in your video because you can’t be talking about Dracos and not have Dracos. Or you went and got a Draco because you heard a song that had a Draco in the video; now you gotta put your Draco in your song.” Thus begins a cycle.
