The title track of his 1996 album Can You Feel Me was a minor but commercial hit. Dru Down is probably best known for his worldwide viral music video "Pimp of the Year", aka "Mack of the Year", written and directed by Marty Thomas, who also directed two controversial remixes. He's performed with Spice 1, Mac Dre, E-40, Richie Rich, Shock G, Yukmouth, The Luniz, and other Bay Area rappers, and introduces the 2Pac song "All About You". Dru Down also plays a part in the 1996 movie Original Gangstas. He had a short tenure with Ruthless Records in 2001-2002, although the album was ultimately released via C-Note Records, a fact alluded to in the beginning of his album, Gangsta Pimpin'. In 2001, he released a movie of his own, Hip Hop & Porn Stars. Currently, Dru is signed to rapper Yukmouth's Smoke-A-Lot Records and owns his own record label, Pimp On Records. Dru Down released his 2010 album Chronicles of a Pimp on November 16 a collaboration with Stay Tooned Entertainment.
