Young Deuces is set to release Son of a Soldier: The Story of Dr. Jekyll’s Legacy, his second solo album of the year. The album was inspired by his father’s rap book that he found and focuses on seven songs that were written the year Young Deuces was born. Born in Milwaukee, WI, Young Deuces grew up traveling the world before they moved back to the crime-riddled city of Milwaukee. The shift of lifestyle, environment, issues, and life was a huge part of the psyche of Young Deuces. Each song on the project is inspired and named after a rhyme from his father’s notebook.
He and his partner StreetzEMP, also a hip-hop artist, started the Streetz-n-Young Deuces (SNYD) foundation; the duo are ready to build the next empire! Young Deuces released his first solo effort, My Unapologetic Black Thoughts, which was highly received. It was said to be an accurate depiction of how life is for a black man in today’s world. Young Deuces Is now ready to drop a new project called “Son of A Soldier”, dedicated to his pops, and the rap book he found in his parent’s basement. The very first song in that book was the very first rap that Young Deuces ever learned and would also be what gave him the desire to pursue music.
Listen to the project below.
