YOUNG DRO

KIM

More potent than the high-powered hydro phonic herb that carries his namesake, homegrown Atlanta sensation Young Dro will definitely get lifted this summer with the release of his Grand Hustle/Atlantic debut, BEST THANG SMOKIN.' On this musical autobiography, the 27-year-old rapper narrates his life from poverty to falling prey to dead-end recording deals to obtaining his dreams of becoming an accomplished emcee.


Born Djuan Hart in the nefarious Bankhead Court housing project, Young Dro grew up the second oldest of his mother's five boys and somewhere amongst the middle seven of his father's 21 children. Although his mother did the best that she could to keep a roof over their heads, Young Dro spent much of his childhood drifting from one housing complex to the next.

 

It was during these many moves in his teen years that he befriended the now Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist T.I. Neither of the two took music seriously at the time. Young Dro didn't even consider a career in music until another one of his friends, Chris 'Daddy Mack' Smith, scored platinum success as one half of early 90s duo Kris Kross.
To make his dream a reality, he first hooked up with pioneering southern rapper Raheem the Dream in the late 90s, who at the time had Drama and D4L front man Fabo signed to his local label. By the end of 2002, Young Dro had the city ablaze with his independent hit single 'Yes Sir' and regional hit album 'I Got That Dro.'


Around the same time, T.I. was prepping his debut album 'I'M SERIOUS.' While the King of the South was promoting the album during a radio interview, Young Dro called the station and asked to talk to the fellow rapper.
That reuniting of two longtime friends evolved into Young Dro signing with Grand Hustle. His major label debut, 'BEST THANG SMOKIN',' reveals other sides of Young Dro, like the melodic, feel good vibes of 'Sittin' High,' the playful sexcapade 'My Girl Got A Girl (Feat. T.I.)' and the funk-driven 'She Tired Of Me,' which showases electric guitar plucks, old school claps and bass lines.


Just puff on the smoking lead single 'Shoulder Lean (Feat. T.I.).' Atop a mid-tempo groove and hypnotic piano loop, Young Dro boasts on the rewards for his sacrifice and determination.
“BEST THANG SMOKIN” also features the pimped-out, Jazze Pha-produced 'Fresh,' where Young Dro pops his collar over laid-back production, breezy guitar strums and Sunday morning organs.
And on the up-tempo anthem 'Presidential,' Young Dro flips flamboyant phrases of his thirst for extravagance on a driving drum track assisted by a Spanish guitar and simmering sonesta.
