Offset discovered, Memphis rap star Duke Deuce drops the grim and sinister “Spin,” off his forthcoming album DUKE NUKEM, due February 26v ia Quality Control Music / Motown Records / Made Men Movement.
The track features all the hallmarks of Duke’s gritty style, from his booming ad-libs to his aggressive delivery, as well as a winning appearance from the rising, Gucci Mane-approved rapper Foogiano.
Rapping over downcast keys and quaking drums, Duke and Foogiano trade bars about facing down opposition with extreme prejudice and fatalistic fervor.
If necessary, they will “spin again and again.” Foogiano’s laidback delivery serves as the perfect complement to Duke’s forceful bars: “Me and Foogiano rep the same thang, we Folks / Playing with my bread ngga fck around and get toast.”
“Spin” follows Duke’s militaristic single “Soldiers Steppin,” but this recent run continues a long hot streak for Duke.
Since his burst into the rap game, the 28-year-old Quality Control Music star has flipped the script for Memphis rap, reclaiming crunk for his city with rugged and wild bangers.
His personality and the high-octane anthems on his Memphis Massacre projects – like the “Crunk Ain’t Dead” remix featuring crunk legends Lil Jon, Juicy J, and Project Pat – have garnered praise from Pitchfork, SPIN, Complex, XXL, FADER, and The Ringer, among others.
Since then Duke has spent countless hours preparing his next move.
Full of crushing and menacing Memphis style showcased on “Spin,” DUKE NUKEM will ring in the next phase of Duke’s global take over.
Duke’s sound is unique defying rap boundaries bringing Memphis crunk culture back to the forefront.
Discovered by rap heavyweight Offset, Duke has already collaborated with the likes of Mulatto, Lil Yachty, Juicy J, Project Pat, and more.
Recent releases from Duke include his punchline filled “Duke Nukem Freestyle” and his southern stripclub themed “KIRK (ft. Mulatto).”
Duke grew up around the Memphis sound and recalls the likes of Three 6 Mafia and 8Ball & 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 is just getting started this year with one “what the f***” adlib at a time.
