Andre DeSean Wicker (born 18 April 1971), better known by his stage name Dresta, is an American rapper from Compton, California. Dresta was affiliated with the Nutty Blocc Compton Crips, and was sentenced to five years imprisonment in 1988 after assaulting another gang member. While in jail, he began writing lyrics and rapping. Upon his release, he made his rapping debut in 1993 on Eazy-E's single "Real Muthaphuckkin G's" alongside his younger brother B.G. Knocc Out

In 1995, Dresta and B.G. Knocc Out released the album Real Brothas, which remains Dresta's only album release to date. At the end of the same year, the two made three guest appearances on Eazy-E's posthumous album Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton

Dresta's output since the end of the 1990s has been limited. He continues to make guest appearances on albums and mixtapes, but is yet to release another full-length project.
