Legally known as Antonio Simmons, Yung Dre Dre is a multi-talented artist. With experience dangling in various categories of art such as songwriting and producing, this rising hip-hop star encompasses talent. From Beaufort, South Carolina, at the age of fourteen, Yung Dre Dre began his musical career. It all started with his ability to capture a multitude of stories within spoken lyrics, thus he began to produce his own music. This gave him the opportunity to present his unique sound to thousands over the Internet, where he then gained his very first group of fan following. Overtime, Yung Dre Dre became so popular that he caught the attention of Slim Bell at Time 2 Shine. In the blink of an eye, Dre Dre was signed to Time 2 Shine Entertainment and it’s been a bountiful relationship for both parties thus far. It can be said that Yung Dre Dre has managed to use similar elements as rapper Soulja Boy, who uses social networks to produce stardom; this intelligence landed Yung Dre Dre a successful fan base, and it is with the rising popularity of “Ringtone” that we see this artist’s career as being something truly magnificent in the works.
Yung Dre Dre’s creative process can be seen in “Ringtone” in which the song invites music listeners to engage in a lyrical storytelling that eliminates all negative thoughts.
