Duke Deuce dropped a new music video for his song “Back 2 Back” on March 19, from his recently released album, DUKE NUKEM. Co-directed by Duke, the video has already gotten more than 458K views and 18K likes on YouTube. As the video continues to grow in popularity, so does Duke’s star power. He isn’t just an artist on the rise, but also a musical force to be reckoned with.
“Back 2 Back” tells of the many accomplishments he’s made while being in the hip-hop industry.
He talks about his numerous hits, being on the cover of XXL and making it out of the hood. He also speaks on his “mob mentality” and how he won’t allow anyone to get over on or threaten him.
The “Back 2 Back” music video, which is centered around Duke, is almost a fusion of elements from the mob and the Black Panther Party, but with some modern additions. Duke is standing at the head of a table, wearing all black and speaking to his team, while they are sitting, listening and also wearing all black. The visuals feature many close-up shots and angles of Duke Deuce and of other video members, which makes the video look much more dynamic.
Duke Deuce has a strong social media following, with over 619K followers on Instagram, and a huge backing from hip-hop industry heavy hitters like Lil Yachty, Mulatto and Juicy J. He doesn’t have very far to go in his journey to the top of the hip-hop and rap charts and “Back 2 Back” just might be the song to help him in that journey. Overall, the song is a great listen and its video elevates the hypeness of the song.
