Up next, we have D Dukes, an hip hop artist from Chicago with a story to tell. The young artist keeps it real in his music and that’s what makes fans and new listeners gravitate to him. We recently caught up with D Dukes to talk about his latest projects and upcoming plans.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
Well I am 27 year old from Chicago IL, just trying to progress daily and perfect my music. I try to paint a visual with my music and use different scenes in my life to tell a story.
How would you describe your sound?
Hunger. You can hear the hunger in me, I try to keep it positive and don’t rap about what I don’t do.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
A great experience you get that mind frame where you know your music will conquer all. I try to make the best music I have in me so my supporters can relate and live through it.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
Right now I’m working on a EP called “DUKESOLOGY” and once I finish up the project I do plan to book more shows and making more music.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
I did my first live tv performance, it was a wonderful feeling, it was like that moment I been working towards and I feel it has opened more doors that I need to take advantage of.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s).
I definitely want to work with J Cole, Big Krit, Kendrick, Cassidy, Chance the rapper and many more.
Name something random that people do not know about you.
I am a computer nerd haha, I actually work on computers and read about them and study it.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
You have to stay consistent, there’s a new artist born everyday with a different sound not saying it’s a competition but you have to stay alert and be on top of your A game at all times.
What can we expect from you in the future?
New music, more visuals, bigger opportunities and more spotlight. I plan to do more features also with more artist.
Anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Just want to thank everybody who took the time to read and listen to my music. Artist if you want to get some work in contact firstname.lastname@example.org again thank you.
