    Dre Murray's story is a rap world tale that hits all the familiar touch points. He was raised by a single mother in the inner city, seduced by hip hop culture at a young age, and witnessed the incarceration of a close family member.

    While many in his position pursue rescue through wealth and fame achieved by athletics or a recording career (two avenues he did indeed attempt), Murray ultimately found salvation elsewhere. Such optimism is a running theme in his music, which otherwise deals with the gritty details of life through first-person and fictional narratives punctuated with witty wordplay. Although Dre Murray is no stranger to the mic (his first solo album, Manumit, was released in 2008), the Houston-born MC exponentially grew his audience a year later when he teamed with producer Wit for the Hell's Paradise series. The success of those critically-acclaimed albums led to other high profile features for Dre on KJ-52′s Dangerous album and Lecrae's Don Cannon-hosted Church Clothes mixtape.

    He continues to improve his craft through participation in the nationally publicized South by Southwest (SXSW) music and industry conference festival and through frequent engagements at universities and colleges in his area. Dre is part of the collective WLAK (We Live As Kings) with the self titled album WLAK (We Live As Kings) releasing March 5th, 2013 & debuting at #1 on the iTunes Hip Hop / Rap chart, #3 overall album iTunes Chart, #1 Billboard Gospel Chart, #6 Billboard Christian Album Chart,  #7 Billboard Rap Album Chart, & #81 Billboard top 200 chart.

    Christian rap | Posted August 14, 2013
    Dre Murray a new artist to me, and not my typical genre of music, but I am glad that there are Christian musicians making rap music to appeal to this fanbase. I couldn't tell from the video or lyrics of "Pharaoh" that this was a Christian music video. I wouldn't let my kids watch this one because I don't think they would understand the context of the alcohol/tobacco use and other secular themes in this video.

    Stunning view on materialism on the Pharaoh clip, not completely my style of music, but the vid grabbed me. Isn't there a pharoah in all of us?
