Biography

Andre DeSean Wicker (born April 18, 1971), better known by his stage name Dresta, is an American rapper known for collaborating with Eazy-E on the 1993 single "Real Muthaphuckkin G's". He is also the older brother of rapper B.G. Knocc Out, who also collaborated in the song.

While Wicker was serving his five-year sentence, he started writing lyrics and rapping, gaining some notoriety. Within months of Wicker's release, he and Hinton collaborated with Eazy-E to record Real Muthaphukkin G's. Dresta (Wicker) and B.G. Knocc Out (Hinton) signed to Ruthless Records with Eazy-E. They both appeared on the Eazy's 1993 multi-platinum EP It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa on the single "Real Muthaphuckkin G's" (which was censored to "Real Compton City G's" in order to garner MTV and radio airplay). The song itself was a response to Dr. Dre's and Snoop Dogg's various 'diss' records towards Eazy-E on The Chronic.

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

After B.G. Knocc Out's incarceration in 1998, Dresta worked with Death Row Records. Dresta appeared on two tracks from Death Row's Too Gangsta for Radio compilation, but never actually signed to the label.
