In the hip hop game, there’s always someone around to poke a hole in your story (just ask Rick Ross), and you should be doubly wary if you refer to yourself as “The Truth.” No one wants to be compared to the Port of Miami boss, so Young Dre makes sure to tell it like it is on Workin’, an ode to the grind. Winning points for his brutal honesty, the chairman of the Cheebah Movement gives insight into the trials and tribulations of today’s rapper, over a beat by Dead Executives. If Young Dre sticks to this blueprint, he’ll have no trouble rising to the occasion and meeting listeners’ Bigga Than Life expectations.
