Still working on that hot first release.



Dre “P-Lotus” Harris had gone by the rap name “Phenom” since 2000. He was only 10 years old back then but he was already writing rhymes, freestyling and recording his rhymes on camcorder or tape recorder. Phenom immediately fell in love with the art form of hip-hop as a means of expression and influencing his listeners. His rap name fit him well because at such a young age he was writing and recording music that had such deep substance and meaning. It had a lot to do with the roster of lyrical MCs that he started off listening to such as Tupac, Eminem, Nas, Dead Prez and many others.


P-Lotus started his music career in the basement of his dad’s house with a computer and camcorder just writing and recording music and videos with friends from his neighborhood. In the summer of 2002, P-Lotus and his friends came together to form a music group called Phenomenal Entertainment. Over the years they produced and distributed several local mixtapes and generated money and buzz. P-Lotus and his partner Jarrod “J-Roc” Jones were the only kids in middle school recording music and burning and selling their own CDs.


One day during his senior year in high school, P-Lotus received a call from Tate Music Group offering him a recording contract. He felt like this was his big opportunity, this was his chance to break into the industry. So, he signed the deal at age 18 and released his self-titled debut album “PHENOM (2009)” with Tate Music Group in January 2009. The album release helped him gain exposure and first-hand knowledge of the music business, but initially it wasn’t the huge success that he envisioned. P-Lotus left TMG after just one album in favor of going to college and eventually incorporating his own record company that would produce market and distribute his music and other artists as well.


Including his first album release in 2009, P-Lotus has recorded, executive produced, and released a total of 4 studio albums and 7 mixtapes under his own label. In December 2012, he released his second album titled “BACK TO THE BASICS (2012)”. During the Fall of 2015, P-Lotus kept the momentum going with the release of the singles “Stop Killing Us” “What Tonight Do” and “Gas You” from his third album “BIG BUSINESSS (2015)”. In 2018, he released his fourth studio album titled “EMOTIONS (2018)”. Now in 2021, he is set to release his first official 4 song EP titled “RAPPER MODE (2021) which will be followed by “Still Married to The Music 3” his 3rd and final installment of the “Still Married to The Music” mixtape series.  


P-Lotus is the innovator of a music genre called “Productive Hip-Hop”. This style of music compares and contrasts with what is considered contemporary or modern rap music. “Productive Hip-Hop” is about expressing your creativity and passion in everything you do and coming up with productive ways to solve problems in the world. A Productive Hip-Hop artist is a conscious person who actively becomes the change that he or she wants to see in the world. The purpose of P-Lotus’s music is to enlighten and inspire his audiences. P-Lotus is a unique artist in his ability to share his values and real-life experiences, communicate an uplifting message and maintain his street edginess. “Negativity is a reality, but it's up to us as artists to find ways to express it without glorifying it". -P-Lotus


P-Lotus's chief musical influence is rap and hip-hop from the 90's. Some artists include Master P, Tupac Shakur, Nas, DMX and Jay-Z. "Productive Hip-Hop is what Gangsta Rap has evolved into."-P-Lotus. Along with musical influences, P-Lotus's artistic expression is also motivated by his desire to use his God given abilities to positively impact the world.
