Fantasia and Young Dro...I Didn't Know

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 5/05/2008 7 comments
I'm a hip-hop aficionado. I stay abreast with what's going on in the music and culture. I usually know the hot new music on mixtapes. I read Vibe and XXL each month. I check the Billboard charts each week. And I get a lot of my daily news from One of my favorite segments on the website is the weekly "Mixtape Monday" column. But today's column caught me off guard.

As I was reading the interview with Young Dro, I came across this line: "In the DVD's trailer, we see Dro talk to Tip via computer video hookup, touch the town with wife Fantasia and lay vocals in the lab." Now those of you who aren't up on hip-hop slang, "wife" means she's his girlfriend (I know what you're thinking: why didn't they just say girlfriend then). Usually the term that's used is "wifey" (makes more sense now, right?).

But this is the first I've heard of a relationship between Fantasia, the High Point native who lives in Charlotte, and Young Dro, who's Atlanta to the core. I did a quick Google search and it revealed several stories and rumors about the two that started surfacing on gossip sites in November. The first photos of them together that I could find were posted online in March. So it looks like it's official. They obviously aren't front-page news like a relationship between Jay-Z and Beyonce, but I think they are equally a good couple.

Fantasia is one of the best voices in R&B, who was discovered by American Idol, of course. Young Dro, one of the best B-list rappers out who could become an A-lister if his upcoming sophomore album lives up to its potential, was put on by T.I. Dro's breakout hit in 2006 was "Shoulder Lean" (again, more info for those of you who may not be as hip-hop savvy).

And you know, the best thing about this couple is that they look like a good match (read between the lines on that one). Now we should probably come up with a cool couple's name for them, like Jayonce, Bennifer, and TomKat. Got any suggestions?


  1. I didn't know about them either. How about we call the couple FanDro?!

  2. I like DroFan, pictures started surfacing of them together since July 2007

  3. I guess those two can work. I dont see Dro putting out anymore hits, at least not without a star feature (T.I.,Jeezy,Rick Ross). Well as long as he has T.I as a friend and keeps laying it to Fantasia, he should keep a couple of dollars in his pocket.

  4. er so cute togever..aare ther still an item tho..?

  5. dat bitch is holding up the devil horns!!!!!!!! DEVIL WORSHIPER!!!!!!!!!

    DO Your research
