With so many critically acclaimed singles under his belt, and a repertoire that has something in it for not just every single hip hop fan out there in the world but R&B and even pop fans as well, it’s a mystery how Drevo Coolidge still manages to exceed almost every expectation and gain unprecedented mass appeal with every new song, album or mixtape. Now growing at an alarming rate, his music catalog has everything from slow-burning hip hop ballads to club bangers, and everything in-between. He has wasted no time getting back into the studio following the launch of his new web series, “Day In The Life Of Drevvy”. He released a new single titled “Re-Up” on the 7th of July and announced the completion of two more new records - “Pedro Prez”, which is scheduled for release this month, and “London”, which features emerging Jackson, Mississippi rapper 2Verse. The new single, “ReUp” features fellow Jackson, Mississippi rappers Mookey Montana, and OG Snap who he has been working with quite a lot lately. Distributed by DistroKid, "Re-Up" is available to stream and download on Youtube, Spotify, Apple Music and all popular digital music platforms. There is also talk of a music video for the track in the works.
