About the artist
Your Old Droog is a Ukrainian-American rapper from Brooklyn, New York. Sacha Jenkins, the former creative director of Mass Appeal discovered him on YouTube. He first gained public attention in June 2014 when online rumors were thought up by some that his self-published debut EP was actually recorded by veteran New York rapper Nas under an alter ego, before revealing himself in August of that year as a 25-year-old Ukrainian American. His self-titled debut album was released digitally on November 25, 2014. The name "Droog" comes from a Ukrainian word meaning "friend".
