Music Monday 4.15.13 District Dre

Good morning UxU fans. Here we are again with another riveting DMV artist, District Dre.

His current project, The Sixth Man , is a showcase of his skills. Lyricism and flow is what District Dre consistently provides for his fans. These skills are beyond the expertise of a normal rapper. You can tell that his craft has everything… he has that “it” factor. This mixtape is no joke and it shows a distinct skill level that many rappers have a hard time to grasp. 

The Sixth Man refers to metaphorically getting off the bench and coming into the game with a complete hunger for success. 

District Dre also has a body of work that shows his dedication to his music. He has three mixtapes: The StrategyThe Strategy Vol. 2, and The Strategy Vol. 3 . His work ethic is relentless as he continues to grind on his craft and become one of the best in the DMV to make it in this hip hop game.

District Dre was greatly influenced by his relative and fellow rapper Young Fresh. His lyrical influence was based on rappers he grew up on such as Jay Z and Eminem. Currently, Drake and Big Sean can be heard booming through his headphones. This DMV rapper takes his craftsmanship very serious. His flow is his own. You can tell that he has taken his time to mold his own sound and maintain originality.

"At the end of the day you need to sound like you’re not like everyone else. That's how you stay relevant," he said. District Dre defines his style as versatile. From his “turnt up” flow over hype beats to his soul hitting messages on smooth beats. He can do it all. The song “Life” from his project The Strategy Vol. 3 displays those important messages on a seamless beat. He hopes that his current project  The Sixth Man will finally increase his buzz. He wants to be able to continue blessing the streets with that much-needed music.

His next mixtape is due to drop this summer. This on-edge anticipation is definitely what the people need this summer. The UxU team can't wait for it to drop.
