Real Kings’ is DRE-SKI’s latest track – a showcase of his consistent, deliberate flow on top of a steady hip hop beat with brooding lyrics to provide a juxtaposition against the grain of current styles. – Out Now!

‘Real Kings’: You’ll Find Your Way

Taking inspiration from Nipsey Hussle, along with Jay-Z‘s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ – wanting to portray a feeling of nostalgia through his lyrics, DRE-SKI has written something that pertains to young kings who are finding their way in life. ‘Real Kings‘ conveys a heartfelt belief in overcoming daily struggles and everyday hustles – and also staying true to yourself and focusing on your grind. Inspiration for the song also comes from the classic Spike Lee movie – ‘He Got Game’ – in which Denzel Washington airs the thought that the downfalls many successful men face due to the women in their life.

You do not have to be someone that you’re not. A lot of newer rappers feel as if they have to be a ‘gangster’ to be considered ‘real’. Real kings are businessmen, fathers, entrepreneurs, brothers, cousins, people of change.” – DRE SKI.


An artist who continues to patiently study the game and fellow artists to find hidden gems in their lyrics – DRE SKI is no stranger to the rap game. Rarely do you come across an artist whose passion for music and flows surpasses their desire for fame. The drive and determination he possesses to become one of the greatest allow for all kinds of criticism, with his electrifying personality creating an immediate first impression of serious dedication.

Being a Virginia Beach native, he has looked up to the greats such as Jay-ZFabolousPusha-T & more iconic stars. Over the past few years, DRE SKI has managed to garner attention with his mixtapes and EP’s, debuting on DatPiff and the major streaming platforms to positive responses from listeners.

DRE SKI’s discography includes ‘Twisted’, a single from earlier this year, alongside his four-track EP entitled ‘4 Real Ones Only’ amongst other incredible releases – which have led him to him being featured on Sirius Satellite Radio & XM radio.
