Mini Bio (1)

Born in Oakland, California, Dru Down is the illegitimate son of funk legend Bootsy Collins. The music roots passed down as Dru began rapping in the late 1980s and released his first album, "Fools from the Streets", in 1993. Relativity, a Sony Music imprint, took notice, and released his second album in 1994, "Explicit Game".

The lead single from the record, "Pimp of the Year" became a radio hit, peaking at #65 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song to this day gets heavy radio rotation in the Bay Area.

As an actor, Dru debuted as the ruthless "Kayo" in the cult classic "Original Gangstas" in 1996 co-starring Jim Brown, Pam Grier, and Fred Williamson. That same year he released his third album, "Can You Feel Me" which spawned a radio hit of the same title which made the Billboard Hot 100.

At present Dru continues to perform in concert and record. His upcoming solo album "Explicit Game 2" will be released in 2015.
