Grand Hustle's Young Dro recently spoke on his forthcoming P.O.L.O. album and aim to step up his Hollywood acting game.
Aside from taking the cue from T.I.'s recent acting success, Dro announced the launch of his new site, DroSpeaks.com.
"Young Dro, you already know man," Dro said in a video. "In the studio man, putting finishing touches on sh*t. Stay in tune, dealing with all my fans to let 'em know P.O.L.O. on the way and don't even get it twisted. Players Only Live Once. Check in with your partner man, it's gon' be real big, you know what I'm saying? Got hot tracks on there, we coming to LA to shoot videos and all that man, holla at my peoples over there, Travis Barker. Sh*t like that going on, trying to go to MGM and do sh*t like that, do movies. I mean, so tune in every week, it's your boy Young Dro, P.O.L.O. the album, you gotta know to get that man. You gotta know your boy gonna be on fire like a motherf*cker shorty. And tell all them haters out there, keep on hatin' man. You either gonna die from it or live to it." (Dro Speaks)
Despite being nearly three years since his Best Thang Smokin' debut, the rapper said his sophomore project is in the books.
"Yeah, we finished with the album, the finishing touches are there," he said in an interview last month. "'Take Off' was the single, it was like a little buzz to get everything back in motion. We got these next two songs we finna work. We finna work two more songs. One is called, 'On Fire,' that T.I. co-produced and Jim Jonsin. The next single is called 'In the Club,' that Jim Jonsin also produced, which only has me on it. We gonna work on both of these. They both hot, like they out of this world records. So, it?s how I feel it. We back in the ballgame." (Vibe)
Both Tip and Dro reportedly came up together and left the streets for rap careers.
Atlanta rapper and T.I. protege Young Dro decided to pursue a career in rap music in order to break the cycle of tribulations from hustling and inner-city life. Although he had known T.I. since the early '90s, they grew apart for some time. By early 2006, Young Dro was signed to T.I.'s imprint, Grand Hustle Entertainment. (Billboard)
The upcoming album will follow-up his 2006 debut.
Backed by the self-proclaimed "King of the South" T.I. and major label Atlantic Records, Young Dro hit the ground running with the popular single "Shoulder Lean" in summer 2006. It had heavy rotation on BET and MTV2, and its cellular phone ringtone sold over 500,000 units. The hit single is featured on his major-label debut, Best Thang Smokin', released in late August 2006.
