2009 looks to be Young Dro‘s year to break back into the mainstream. In addition to being featured on the remix of Grand Hustle labelmate Yung L.A.‘s current smash-hit, Ain’t I, his current single, Take Off (also assisted by L.A.) has also started to pick up some notable buzz, peaking at #4 on our Rap Chart. Though his climb continues, Dro hasn’t forgotten his underground Atlanta roots, as evidenced by new buzz/street single Clean Wit It. With his witty wordplay on full display, Dro goes more fast-paced and aggressive than usual, likely motivated by 2 Band Geeks’ hard-thumping beat. Clean Wit It will easily serve its purpose as a record designed to bump heavily in the whip, and will likely earn a spot on numerous mixtapes as well. At presstime, Dro’s sophomore album, P.O.L.O. (Playas Only Live Once), has no release date.
