In case you haven't noticed, the veteran Young Dro has been at the top of his game this year. He dropped two mixtapes in the month of May, first the Zaytoven-produced Boot Me Up and then Phoenix. Shortly before that, he matched the young mobsters of T.I.'s Bankroll Mafia squad blow for blow on the crew's debut self-titled album. Dro is now back to prove once again that he's been "Drippin Sauce" all over Atlanta.
Young Dro Feat. Lue Hefner
Atlanta stalwart Young Dro dropped his joint project with Zaytoven Boot Up just over a week ago, but he’s already back with more fire.
Nick Grant Feat. Young Dro
We debuted Nick Grant on HotNewHipHop just last week, and we’ve already got another cut from his upcoming ’88 mixtape (dropping tomorrow). “Class Act” features fellow Atlanta native Young Dro closing out the track with a verse. Both artist absolutely go in on the instrumental.
Young Thug Feat. Young Dro
Dun Deal has shared a new track from Young Thug and Young Dro titled "Top Notch." Deal produced "Stoner" as well as other Thugger essentials, so every time he hooks up with Atlanta slime, it's worth checking out. Today's collab is certainly surprising, though, as it's a heavy EDM number, with additional help on the beat from young Atlanta producer Niko the Kid.
Following up his Rich Homie Quan-featured remix to “Ugh,” Young Dro decides to come through today and release his first song of 2016 called “30’s.”
Akee Fontane Feat. Young Dro & Runway Richy
Making his long overdue debut on HNHH tonight is Akee Fontane out of Wilmington, DE. He's got an immediately commanding flow and his new mixtape, Can't Be Young Forever, hosted by Don Cannon, is full of jump-around trap bangers brimming with hustler's ambition. The only features on the 11-track project are two Georgia trappers, Young Dro and Runway Richy, who both show up on "So."
Young Dro Feat. Rich Homie Quan
After making an appearance on T.I.'s stand-out track off Da Nic EP, "PBJ," alongside Young Thug, Dro returns to his single "Ugh" for a big remix. The record first dropped back in August, containing the trademark Zaytoven sound.
T.I. Feat. Young Thug & Young Dro
A week after hitting us with the League Of Starz-produced-cut “Check Run It”, T.I. returns with another one called “PBJ” featuring fellow ATL trappers Young Thug & Young Dro.
Nobody seems to give Young Dro the credit he deserves. While his contemporaries like Jeezy and T.I. were defining trap as a rough-edged, aggro style of Southern rap, Dro was leaning more towards the Gucci Mane school of brighter, less self-serious fare. That style eventually came to take over Atlanta, albeit in a bit evolved form, and similarly to the Lil Wayne-influences-Young Thug-influences-Lil Wayne pattern we've seen over the past year, now Dro is taking cues from his stylistic descendants.
London Jae Feat. Young Dro
London Jae, one of the No Genre artists signed to B.o.B, recently appeared on Bobby Ray's "Smash It" leak which you guys were feeling (according to our user rating). Today the artist returns to his April mixtape, Better L8 Than Never, as he delivers a remix of fuse808-produced "Drippin" off the project. "Drippin" originally featured Spodee, but today we get a verse from Young Dro as part of the official remix.
We In Da City (Remix)
Young Dro Feat. T.I.
Back in February, Young Dro gave us a new single by the name of "We In Da City." A video followed in April, and now we get a remix that features Hustle Gang boss T.I.
We In Da City
We haven't gotten new Young Dro music in a good minute, with his last track "Errrthang" coming in back in August. He ends the drought today with the high-energy banger "We In Da City." Let us know if you're fucking with this one. Quotable Lyrics
Like That (Remix)
Raven Felix Feat. Too Short, Young Dro & Chevy Woods
Raven Felix has been gaining regional hype since the release of her Valifornia mixtape this summer. Her track "Like That" has been getting some traction, and has thus earned her an all-star remix which gathers rappers from areas nationwide.West Coast OG Too Short lends a verse, as does Atlanta's Young Dro, and Pittsburgh's Chevy Woods. The result is a varied track which could invade a few other markets over the next little while. Who's got the best verse?
I Do The Most
T.I. Feat. Yung Booke, Young Dro, Spodee & Shad Da God
With the new Hustle Gang mixtape dropping later today, T.I. drops off of one last leak before the fans will receive the full G.D.O.D 2. Following yesterday's Hustle Gang cut "What You Gone Do," they continue with the bravado talk on "I Do The Most." For this one, Tip recruits Yung Booke, Young Dro, Spodee and Shad for assistance, as each rapper stunts on us, whether it be jewelry, bitches, choppers, or foreign cars.
Not to be confused with Yo Gotti's recent "Errrbody" or Tyga's even-more-recent "Erryday," Young Dro has just shared a track called "Errthang." On SoundCloud, he describes it as having a "Super hard beat with a riding hook...," which is actually quite accurate.
Young Dro Feat. T.I.
Today, we premiered Young Dro's Black Label tape. One of the project's noteworthy tracks is "Thirsty," mostly because of a guest appearance from Hustle Gang label boss T.I. Dun Deal is also on hand to provide A+ production.
Polo, Polo, Polo (Remix)
Kataztrofee Feat. Young Dro, French Montana & The Game
So rap duo named Kataztrofree appear on HNHH for the very first time thanks to a remix of their track "Polo Polo Polo" for which they managed to nab Young Dro, French Montana and Game. It's a free download, so no complaining (jokes, you guys can always complain). The duo are comprised of Eric "Victory" Johnson and Shannon "Mr. Arrogant" Speed and hail from Fort Worth, Texas. These two are actually on tour with 2 Chainz for his "2 Good 2 Be T.R.U." tour. Check out the remix and let us know what you think. Would you like to see these guys on the site again?
Young Dro pays homage to The Notorious B.I.G. on the anniversary of his passing with "Notorious D.R.O.", produced by N4. It's a reworking of "Hypnotize", one of Biggie's biggest hits, which was produced by Diddy, D-Dot, Raul Zeballos and Ron Lawrence and included on his 1997 album Life After Death (the track skyrocketed to #1 after his murder).
Gunplay Feat. Young Dro
Gunplay is finally zeroing in on his debut album. He released the first single from the project back in November-- the underrated Lil Wayne and Rick Ross-featuring "Kush". The song didn't connect with audiences as it much as it should have, so Gunplay has now launched another stab at a hit. "Krazy" finds the Florida rapper teaming up with another under-utilized talent, Young Dro, for a mid-tempo banger.
Young Dro Feat. Bandit Gang Marco
Young Dro returned in a big way last year. Releasing his Day Two mixtape, as well as High Times, the long-awaited follow up to his breakthrough album, Best Thang Smokin'. Dro is not about to take another hiatus however, releasing his new slow-burner "GRITS" today. The Bandit Gang Marco-assisted track finds Dro holding back on his usual double-time assault of southern spitting, instead getting his Lean-era Wayne on, hitting us with a syrup-y auto-tuned delivery.
