Cool & Dre are a team of American record producers from North Miami, a suburb of Miami, Florida, consisting of Marcello "Cool" Valenzano and Andre "Dre" Christopher Lyon.

Epidemic Records[edit]

The duo started their own record label, Epidemic Records.[1] They signed a contract with Jive Records in 2003 concerning the distribution of their first artist, Dirtbag.[citation needed]

In August 2010, the duo officially partnered with Cash Money Records.[2] In April 2011, the duo signed a deal with Interscope Records through Cash Money (the first time Cash Money is under another Universal label), also to distribute their label Epidemic Records.
