Although Jacksonville rapper Dukwon is completely independent, he is ready to promote his work like a “major without a major deal.” With a slew of regional mixtapes hosted by the likes of Nas, Swizz Beatz, and N.O.R.E., the Duval County representative is bringing his city into the limelight with his official debut single, Aww Yeah. Contrary to what most hip-hop websites would have you believe, Aww Yeah does NOT feature T-Pain (vocoders can be misleading), but even without an A-list feature, Dukwon seems to be sitting pretty. With the powerful message that he is serious about the rap game, backed by an equally strong beat (courtesy of MGeezy), Dukwon should have plenty of buzz around his name when he releases his debut, Mr. Southern Pine, this November.
