  5. I saw mr dred earlier in da year..pretty good show only that it left me confused:~{ I meen I saw him all hoppin around on stage singin into the mic all but a few times when hed hava break in lyrics, the lyrics would keep going like it was prerecorded. Furst time I seen him on stage years ago it seemed like he was backup singin into the mic.. He tears it up lyrically n all but I wanna know if itz all him on vocals or not cuz from my standpoint.. it was like he was millivanilli’n it up..keep shreaadin Dred!

  6. Kome on D.R.E.D. You gotta tell tha whole truth….. You was droppin’ poetry in like first grade….. But on some fiyah type shit, keep up the work of mastering your Kraft and with your work ethik and faith in God nothing kan stop you or hold you bakk. You’re gonna have lil muffukkas kome along and have shit to say but they ain’t walked a blokk in our shoes so shiiiiid my kall is to say fukk ’em. Keep doin’ what in the fukk it is dat you do….. Get dat paper and piss….. Nahhhh shit on them haters (some of them sikk muffukkas might get off to a real nigga pissing on they ass)

  7. Houston needs new talent that does not just make music about nothing but sex and money or even for the money. I think D.R.E.D comes back to the roots of where rap and hip hop originated in the fact that he just makes music that people want to hear and can relate to. Looking forward to more music from him.

  8. Lovin “Cookin In tha Kitchen” . Can’t wait to hear tha whole album! I saw him on stage at the Jet Lounge last manth and he killed it point blank!! Keep doin what ya do Mistah D.R.E.D.

  9. Congrats Mistah!!! Glad to see u finally getting the shine you deserve! Keep pushing so everybody can know how talented you are. So far as what ms.com Flynn said, I can’t agree. I seen him perform plenty of times and he even warms up acapella and kills it everytime! Idk what u saw but as a fan, I know better than that. Just sayin. Keep it up bro!!

  10. As soon as I saw “Cookin in tha kitchen”, I thought here we go, another trap song (boo). I gotta say tho that I was presently suprised with what I heard . I love it. And tha wordplay was sick too!! Never thought Houston had it like that so far as rap. Imma have to check that scene out more! MISTAH D.R.E.D., u got a fan here br keep killin it!

  11. The main thing I respect about this artist is that he understands what real rap is all about. He isn’t an entertainer…he’s a true lyricist and artist and is definitely needed in the mainstream hiphop world.

  12. If ole boy is from Houston, they finally got tha point. Screw is cool and all, but u need that substance. From what I hear, MISTAH D.R.E.D. is on it!!!

  13. All imma say is FIRE!!! Line after line, bar after bar is nothin but heat. It’s rare that u see what you hear in a song these days. From the beat to the lyrics, Mistah D.R.E.D. is a pro at it!! Keep it goin bro!! You’re going far!!

  15. Mistah D.R.E.D your music is truly inspirational and universal. I would strongly recommend your music to anyone because it is truly relatable. You talk about a wide range of topics, which prooves you to be an artist that will have longevity in the game. Your wordplay is crafty and hooks are crazy! the edgy beats adds the icing on the cake.I wish you nothing but the best as a strong leader in the DarkSyde Nation! Im so proud of you bro!

  19. He is a lyricist. His word play is phenominal ! We need more artist like him. He is dedicated to bringing the original meaning of hip hop back into the community.

  20. I love lyrics ao I had to listen again. This man just referred “game” to serving food! Hell Yeah!!! True Lyricist!! Mistah D.R.E.D. is going far
