Biography


The Jamaican-born, Boston-based lyricist has kept the clubs and radio burning. Powered by a remix featuring Mobb Deep (no strangers to thuggish club bangers themselves) ‘Get Right’ jumped into the club set lists and mixes of some of the nation’s biggest DJ’s. Jam’n 94.5’s Pup Dawg and Statik Selektah, Hot 97 Boston’s Chubby Chub along with Power 105' Geespin have all supported Dre’s music. Music came naturally to Dre as a youth in Dorchester, MA. Writing was an outlet for him to express himself and all of the struggles that he had gone through. “Growing up in the hood and without a father forced me to see and experience things that most people don’t, so music became my weapon. I was able to express who I was through the pen." Hip Hop became a refuge for Dre, a channel for him to portray the everyday struggles of the street life that he witnessed. Dre was able to draw from his experiences on the street and turn it into something positive through his music. This authenticity is a characteristic that few can match and has set him apart from most cats in the game.

What started as a hobby soon became a desire for Dre, and eventually the music industry became a reality. Dre caught the attention of Joey Fergus Jr. better known as Joey Politics. Joey formed Pollymore Music in order to ensure that the world heard Dre’s flow. It was then that Dre teamed with DJ J-Saki and started the 3 part Starvin’ series and flooded the streets with freestyles and mixtapes to help build the buzz. That buzz reached DJ Gee Spin. In Gee Spin’s eyes it was simple, “I knew from the first verse, I wanted to work with Dre, the passion in his flow and the fact that he did 50 bars straight (without a curse), made me excited about Hiphop again. He just has ‘it’. Whatever ‘it’ is, he has ‘it’.”

To further demonstrate his versatility within this industry, Dre has also made a name for himself in the print, television, and online worlds. The Boston Phoenix spotlighted him in their New England Product column. This is one of many accolades Dre has received as he readies his debut. The Source Magazine and Hip Hop Weekly have spotlighted him as an MC on the verge of making a national impact. In addition he was picked as one of the Boston Globe’s Top Ten Local Artists To Watch and was the subject of a Boston Globe Calendar section cover story on Boston Hip Hop.
