When DRex released his first album (“Hustler/Rapper”) on Datpiff.com in Fall 2011, it taught him the power of connections and networking even without the marketing tools he needed. Even today the “Hustler/Rapper” album has a guaranteed hot tracklist for music heads who know the power of DRex, telling the truth with tracks like “My Life”, “Faghettaaboutit”, “Trappin” (with Gorilla Zoe), and others:
But for DRex, music was never far away. It wouldn’t be long before he was campaigning for a DRex new single, “Where You From” now available on iTunes and YouTube, and telling his truth to more and more fans online and in local clubs.
DRex and his Raw Ent street team set out to hit the streets grinding his newest mixtape entitled “The Streets is Watching”, hosted by DJ Bigga Rankin, one of the hottest DJs down south. This mixtape is also on Datpiff.com, and features tracks from Hell Rell and Gorilla Zoe.
Successful rappers need the right street cred, and DRex worked that in with other established artists:
Along with his work with fellow rappers, DRex has mixed with producers Wil C – Streetheat Ceo, Sy Fire, and Melody Child, and his work is gaining more traction with WorldstarHiphop.com, YouTube, and many other sites.
Savannah fans know DRex from local hotspots and shows in the greater metropolitan area. He has recently toured throughout New York State, Connecticut, the greater Chicago Area, Minneapolis, and across Michigan, and keeps a busy calendar of upcoming dates. Check back for further performance information and new releases from DRex. New single “Where You From” is now a big up-and-comer on the rap scene. Don’t miss it!

The rapper born Torrence Hatch was released from the Louisiana’s Angola State Penitentiary Wednesday night (March 5) at 7:10 p.m., Warden Burl Cain told WAFB.
The Baton Rouge native was then transferred to a sheriff’s department facility in St. Francisville, where he was welcomed home by family members.
Boosie has been incarcerated since June 2010, when he was brought up on first-degree murder charges stemming from the October 2009 shooting death of rap artist Terry Boyd. Boosie was accused of paying then 19-year old Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding to kill the 35-year old man, but was found not guilty in May of 2011 after a week of testimony and jury deliberation.
In November of 2011, months after being found not guilty in the murder trial, Boosie pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to smuggle drugs, which resulted in his eight-year sentence.
The Bad Azz spitter’s release comes before the Louisiana Department of Corrections officially scheduled date of May 20, 2014.
Boosie’s record label, Atlantic Records, has organized a press conference for the “Independent” MC Monday, March 10 at 1 p.m. at the W Hotel in New Orleans.
“He will absolutely be there,” an Atlantic Records representative said. “He’ll be speaking to the press for the first time, after his release.”
The invitation, which was sent to multiple news outlets, reads: “Trill Entertainment and Atlantic Records invites you to hear #BoosieSpeak.”
“I’ve coped by knowing in my heart that I’m someone special who many people love. If you lose hope in yourself, you’ll make your time hard. I always felt that my mission wasn’t complete. I feel I haven’t reached the star power that was destined for me,” Boosie wrote in a letter to Spin last year. “That makes me keep writing and thinking of ways to better myself as a man and artist. When it feels like the world is on my shoulders, I look at my pictures from when I was free and it gives hope and determination to pushing.”
Lil Boosie, who earned his GED while in prison, will remain on parole until 2018.
We wish Lil Boosie and his family nothing but the best. Change is a step ladder to greatness.
