About Young Dro
Blessed with a permanent and playful sense of fun, Young Dro has made a career of popping, occasionally hilariously crude and effectively clever, southern-styled tracks. He rose to prominence with the release of his first album, Best Thang Smoking which featured the massively popular single, Shoulder Lean, featuring fellow southern rapper, T.I. It would be seven years before Young Dro released another album, although it would be wrong to accuse him of being inactive, considering that he released a staggering twelve solo mixtapes during this period which proved popular with Underground listeners, most notably his release of Day 2 which recieved critical acclaim. In 2013 he released his second album, High Times, to positive reviews. This time around he continued to collaborate with T.I. and also featured appearances from Doe B. and Mac Boney, under tracks produced by the likes of Smash Factory and Lil C.
- Before he rose to prominence as Young Dro, D'Juan was a little-known, young rapper known simply as Dro. Ironically he would not add the "Young" part to his moniker until years later.
- T.I. played a prank on Young Dro at Benihana, staging a birthday celebration for him with the waiters and waitresses, even though it was not his birthday.
- After dropping his single, FDB (Fuck Dat Bitch), thedrop.fm asked what would actually prompt him to utter those words. Yound Dro responded, "When the lady at Waffle House forgot to put cheese in my eggs, I was like, ‘Fuck that bitch.'"
- Young Dro was inspired to rap after Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith, one half of Kriss Kross and one of his best friends, started to blow up.
- In 2008, Dro was featured in XXL's Top 10 Freshmen list. Other rappers featured in the list were Lupe Fiasco and Saigon (among others, naturally).
