Maybe the privilege ended when Drew left Phillips Exeter Academy and began working on his degree in philosophy and anthropology at American University. Sure, it's still an expensive school – but now the 19-year-old is camped out in the living room of the apartment he shares with his pal Kristina, who got the bedroom. As long as the budding DJ gets to fire up some tunes, he's okay. ''I DJ. I've been working on it a few years now," he says. "D.C. is really cool because they created 'moombahton,' this tropical electronic music.'' Look for Drew quenching his music jones at shows at the 9:30 Club and U Street Music Hall.
