An Atlanta MC who hit before he released his first mixtape, Dae Dae knew he had a hit the moment he wrote “Wat U Mean (Aye, Aye, Aye).” The rapper had spent time in the studio, but never allowed his music to be heard by the public until 2015. He was working construction when he decided “Wat U Mean (Aye, Aye, Aye)” would be his debut track, and when it dropped in late 2015, it became a regional hit. In 2016, after Young Dro jumped on the remix, it became a national summer hit. Dae Dae signed with 300 Entertainment that same year and released his 4 Reasons mixtape. ~ David Jeffries
