Dru Down (born Darnel Robinson) is a rapper from Oakland, California. His song "Ice Cream Man" from the album Explicit Game was a minor underground hit but he earned airplay with "Pimp of the Year" (sometimes played with more radio-friendly lyrics under the name "Mack of the Year") from the same album. He also had a minor mainstream hit with the title track of his next album, Can You Feel Me, and he performed with Spice 1, E-40, Richie Rich, Shock G, Yukmouth, The Luniz, and other Bay Area rappers. He also collaborated with his Bay Area friend 2Pac on "All About You". Dru Down also plays a part in the 1996 movie Original Gangstas (aka Hot City) and in 2001 he released a movie of his own named Hip Hop & Porn Stars. Currently Dru is signed to rapper Yukmouth's Smoke-A-Lot Records and owns his own record label entitled Pimp-On Records. Towards the summer of 2008 he will release his 6th solo effort, Chronicles of a Pimp on Pimp-On/Smoke-A-Lot Records.
