Brooklyn-based rapper, Dyme-A-Duzin, shares the official video for his track “That Chicken (Remix)” featuring Fabolous. The remix is featured on his 2 Piece Tape which is out now.
Dyme-A-Duzin is a Brooklyn bred, musical prodigy who was singing in church choirs as early as 9 years old, and comes from a vibrant family lineage of natural performers. Dyme-A-Duzin’s grandmother was a backup singer for the Isley Brothers and his mother is a singer for Gospel group, Rizn. That soulfulness and nearly tangible spirituality can be heard in his music. Another major influence in his career was his mentor, Q The Prophet, a gospel MC who actually taught him song structure and gave him his MC name: “Rappers come a dime a dozen.”
Now, 24 years old, Dyme-A-Duzin has logged more studio time than a lot of artist twice his age and he’s released numerous songs with some of Hip Hop’s biggest and brightest. Named one of the “10 New NY Rappers To Watch Out For” by Complex Magazine, Dyme-A-Duzin is surely becoming the voice of his generation. As a solo artist, he’s opened for musical royalty, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, and the Roots. His single, “New Brooklyn” premiered on Jay Z’s Life+Times website and got immediate airplay on Hot 97 with Peter Rosenberg.
The accolades, plays, views and recognition doesn’t stop there, however, and will only continue multiply. Be sure to keep an ear out for the new album, “Crown Fried,” slated for release soon. The “Crown Fried” tour is also coming to a city near you!
