on various music projects for Cool & Dre. Be on the look out for Yung Ladd!
|Cool & Dre’s recent signee and protégée, 20-year old Brian Pickens known as Yung Ladd is quickly making a name for himself as a producer. Having produced “It’s Good”, |
one of the most talked about tracks off of Lil Wayne’s Platinum album Tha Carter IV, he
is on his way to a bright future as a music creator.
What makes this story even more special is that Yung Ladd was introduced to Cool & Dre through his mother, Lisa Truss 4 years ago when she sent a humanitarian request via MySpace to Cool & Dre. Yung Ladd was 16 years old when he became gravely ill and his mom thought an encouraging word from his idols would help lift his spirits. To
Lisa’s surprise Cool responded to her request and the super producers met with Yung
Ladd in Florida with the assistance of the Make A Wish Foundation. Thankfully, Ladd received the life changing care he needed and his health continues to improve.
Over the years Cool & Dre saw how incredibly talented Yung Ladd was as a producer and signed him to a production deal through their imprint Epidemic Music. Ladd then made the move from his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Orlando, Florida to continue his mentorship with Cool & Dre. Ladd’s next track will be Fat Joe’s “Another Round” featuring Chris Brown. Ladd is also producing tracks for Don Trip, Bird Man, The Game, Chris Brown, Usher and more. Expect to hear much more music from this incredible young talent.
