Rap up-and-comer Duke Deuce has let the world know without a doubt that “Crunk Ain’t Dead”. Born and raised in Memphis, the budding 27-year old rapper has made an assertive introduction to the hip hop world in a time where Atlanta rap has reigned supreme, which offers a significant testament to how special Duke’s talent is. He has the Memphis sound in his veins, growing up sharing a bedroom with his rapper/producer father, Duke Nitty, who was a local fan favorite that showed him the trade. After releasing his 2017 track “Whole Lotta”, word of his untapped potential found its way to Offset of the Migos and subsequently to the team at Quality Control Music, who quickly sent Deuce an Instagram DM and was quickly signed. Soon after, Deuce released his 2018 project Memphis Massacre, and contributed on two tracks from QC’s Control The Streets, Vol. II, further putting his stamp on the game. In 2019, he followed up with the hit single “Crunk Ain’t Dead”, which eventually made its way onto his most recent 2020 follow-up project Memphis Massacre 2, where he teamed up with Memphis legends Project Pat and Juicy J, as well as Lil Jon on the “Crunk Ain’t Dead” remix. Duke Deuce brings an entirely new and refreshing sound to the QC roster, consistently bringing the best of the Memphis-rap cadence and style. More to come soon.
