Artist background: Andre J. Parr aka Dre P., was born on August 17th, in Toledo, Ohio. Toledo is a small Midwestern trap town in Ohio noted for being a rendezvous point for notorious Detroit gangsters in the early 1920’s.
The cultural impact on this layover stop is the father to Dre P.’s unparalleled sound and style. Heavily influenced by the realities of hustling and pimping yet also blessed enough to be introduced to the world of entertainment, Dre P. recorded his first mixtape Still Stack’n and began to sell it independently in 2006.
Dre P hooked up with Kansas City native DJ KansasCityCash and Ohio native DJ CoreDJCube in Atlanta, GA to put together his current mixtape Drugs and Paper. Dre P who now is the face of the clothing power house Drugs is attacking the rap game aggressively with this mixtape followed by a follow up tape hosted by OG DJ BiggaRankin.
Dre P: From Toledo, Ohio. The Mud. I’m changing the “I cant make it out of Ohio” rule. Giving the youth inspiration to go after what they believe. Even if they’re unsure of their occupation or have several.
Be an octopus. 8 hands on everything. Also trying to share a positive light on the streets. Drugs being an example: do right u gain success. I left toledo on a greyhound in 07. Wit nothing. Didnt work had to go back. Tried it again on 09. Flew to cali with 156 bucks on a one way. Haven’t been back since.
My contribution to hip hop is very powerful with my image alone no tattoos very light with green eyes rapping about an urban childhood the streets and pimping. I’ve also teamed up with drugs to show hip-hop you can shine a positive light on something so negative.
I also stand behind the slogan hip-hop don’t know you for the uneducated upcoming rappers that don’t know the history and the real roots behind hip hop you have to know the game you’re playing in or you will never win.
