Memphis rapper Duke Deuce drops his new tape, Memphis Massacre 2. Coinciding with the tape is a video for the remix of “Crunk Ain’t Dead” featuring Project Pat, Juicy J and Lil Jon. The tape features the remix and follows the release of the original video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead”. Speaking on the tape and his experience working with his idols/mentors Duke shared, “It was legendary working beside guys I listened to as a kid growing up in Memphis in the studio with my dad.

Duke has been on a steady rise catching attention for bringing back an era of crunk music that originated in Memphis but became popular out of Atlanta. Duke grew up around the sound and recalls the likes of Three6Mafia, 8Ball, and MJG as influences as well as his father Duke Nitty who produced the Memphis classic “S.O.U.T.H. Parkway” by Gangsta Blac. Duke Nitty is also credited as a producer for few tracks on Memphis Massacre 2.

The album sees Duke navigate through diverse production and multiple styles like a veteran. An energetic listen over 12 tracks that could only be made by someone that lives and breathes this scene. It’s a true come up for a rising star in rap. Alongside his music, Duke’s unique dance moves are part of what brought him to Quality Control. After Offset saw one of Duke’s videos, he flew him out to the studio to meet and ended up signing him to QC. Gaining co-signs from the whole QC family as well as Cardi B, Duke Deuce is quickly becoming a recognizable name in the space.
