Soon after T.I. began his federal prison sentence, Young Dro publicly stated that he would take it upon himself to carry the Grand Hustle brand on his shoulders during his boss’ absence. Though few would doubt Dro’s ability to take charge, the emcee’s never really channeled his inner Tip on a track—until now. Over Jim Jonsin‘s hard-hitting beat (reminiscent of DJ Toomp and Mannie Fresh‘s early work with the GH head honcho), Dro pushes his powerful flow to the limit, showcasing swag so hot it’s On Fire. Though Dro’s upcoming sophomore album, P.O.L.O. (Playas Only Live Once) has no set release date, On Fire‘s appeal may well be enough to change that—Tip’s probably bumping it in the Forrest City Federal gym as we speak!
