Young Dope T releases debut hip hop single ‘Htown Made’

The rapper and performer of hip hop known as Young Dope T has released his debut official single, “Htown Made.” The track has been proudly published on the Still Young Records independent music label based in Atlanta, GA. Aggressively creative, masterfully performed and full of lyrical surprises, “Htown Made” is a new hip hop for a new millennium.

Young Dope T cites as chief artistic influences Tupac Shakur, Pimp C, Master P, Fat Pat, Big Moe, and HQ. However, the artist mainly credits the scene in which he grew up as the most important factor in his musical development.

“By around age eight,” notes Young Dope T, “I was already heavily influenced by family members and Houston’s hip hop scene.”

It should come as no surprise, then, that Young Dope T should dedicate his first official release to Houston, Texas, or “H Town.”

Dope’s signature style is distinguished by snappy turnarounds and broad variations in tempo. A rapper with a naturally unique vocal tone, T delivers his clever, well written phrases with inimitable character and audible, infectious fun.

A true urban poet and writer at heart, Young Dope T makes songs with something to say. Remarking on the overall themes of his debut “Htown Made” single, he writes, “Be what you want to be, despite all life’s challenges.”

Young Dope T was born Devron Troy Allen June 13, 1997 in Houston. While “Htown Made” is his public debut on the Still Young Records label, he has many unofficial releases publicly available for sampling and listening online.

“Htown Made” by Young Dope T is available at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip hop fans.
