Awesome Dre is an American rapper from Detroit, Michigan. He is best known for helping to popularise political hip hop in the late 1980s, and was the first hip hop artist from Detroit to have an album released on a major label when You Can't Hold Me Back was repressed by Priority Records. Dre released two albums with his group The Hardcore Committee before fading into obscurity in the 1990s.
