At the age of 12, Derix "Dadeuce" Dugan II put the pen to the pad in
the form of poetry and started captivating audiences instantly.
"I sound like me" stated DaDeuce. "I don't want to ever be compared to
somebody or be the next so and so". "I strive to be different" He
says. "If I was like someone else what would make you want to listen to
me"? (Good Question).

Born and raised in Clarksdale, a small town in Mississippi, and now
residing in Baton Rouge, LA, Deuce was faced with trials and tribulations
but stated "It just fueled me to succeed and not use those things as an
excuse for failure".

Through spoken word Deuce owned the city talent shows winning time and
time again, but oddly he couldn't rap a lick. Years passed, and as 2005
approached something sparked the transition to relaying his messages over
beats now. He had just been baptized again and was on the campus of
Southern Mississippi where he attended school. Some of his homeboys that
he attended bible study with where freestyling, but Deuce thought it was
so wacky but entertaining. He was looking for a way to strengthen his walk
with Yahshua but he didn't want to give up rap music. So he just put 2
and 2 together, and that's how it all started. Deuce stated "I never
thought I'd be rapping today or that I would be good at it." Being
that he started on a computer mic in a dorm room and now he's taking
flights from city to city to perform for the youth. "It's crazy man"
He replied.

Deuce has done collabs with countless MC's such as God's Elect, The
Apostle, & Rob Campbell, to name a few. As well as Collabs with our own
One Dose, and Jaelife whom he released a 2008 mixtape with titled "Rap
Moses and Aaron the Leader", which delivered heart wrenching and spirit
filled lyrics from Deuce and Jae. In 2008 DaDeuce was also a part of the
Changed Men Mixtape which was mixed by Twinz productions, hosted by Von
Vargas and produced by Christ Musiq.

Now in 2010, this marks the year of Dadeuce's first solo mixtape "The
Substance" which is being re-mastered & rereleased under Yahweh Nation
Juuno Entertainment with new tracks added. This is a strong and powerful
mixtape with songs like "Bow Down", "Running a Race", and "Let Me
Know". This mixtape displays a talented portray of words while
encouraging and uplifting you to stay focused on your goals and dreams of
this life and the one to come by keeping Yahweh first in all that you do.
We see no reason why Deuce won't soon be the talk of a city near you.

So without further a due, we present to you the newest member of the
