The Atlanta music scene has been divided into two sections. First, there is the "street" music faction, categorized by bass heavy beats intended to rock parties moreso than stimulate your mind, where lyrical content is trumped by the catchiness of the chorus. Secondly you have the "internet" section, which is more laid back, and is more suitable for listening at a starbucks wifi-lounge than a "crunk" club in Atlanta. Hailing from the southside of the city, College Park to be exact, up and coming emcee P. Dukes plans on merging the musical divide in Atlanta through his honest and clever brand of music. As a graduate of Banneker High School, the same institution that produced artists such as Ludacris and Yung Joc, Dukes has a strong affiinity for traditional hood past times such as pretty girls, fast cars, and easy money That affinity is indentifiable in his music. Conversely, as a graduate of Auburn University, Dukes expresses his appreciation for empowerment through education while preaching to his listeners the importance of being yourself even when its not perceived to be the "cool" thing to do at the time. His lyrical prowess over hard 808's, synths, and strings, allows him to be taken seriously even by the harshest of critics, while at the same time it endears him to those from the same lower-middle class single parent home demographic he comes from as a hero of sorts. The guy from College Park who can run the streets without being involved in them, an interesting notion that you will only be able to understand by listening to his music.
