like Fox News at just 10 years old. Flash forward to present day, the rapper boasts over 1
million views on World Star Hip Hop for his visuals to his most recent track “Ric Flair”. He also recently released the Hypno Carlito (Lil Durk – OTF) assisted “Big Business” that’s gaining traction online. Stunna Dre’s defines his sound as “ahead of its time” often reflecting on his own story. “People should listen because it’s real,” says the rapper. “I’m not here to portray an image. I’m here to be myself and rap about situations I’ve been through”.
Stunna Dre balances running his own label, Street Made Brothers, and releasing new music. He
