Duke Deuce was hospitalized this week after being hit by a truck.
The Memphis rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday (May 24) to share a photo of himself laying in a hospital bed while detailing the incident that put him there.
According to Duke Deuce, someone attempted to run him over in a vehicle, but luckily he was able to avoid any major injuries.
“Hating azz n-gga really tried to run me over with his truck yesterday but only hit my arm,” he wrote. “No broken bones or nothing tho thank God. Im a hard body n-gga fr.”
Duke Deuce released his latest album Memphis Massacre III in October via Quality Control Music.
The rapper was one of HipHopDX‘s Rising Stars for 2022. During an interview with DX last year, Deuce spoke about reviving crunk music.
“Growing up, I always was a little upset that Memphis wasn’t on,” he said. “It was like the early 2000s and shit like that, and shout out to Lil Jon and all them folks, I love them, I was inspired by them as well.
“But all we seen on the TV was Atlanta, bruh. And I’m like, ‘Damn,’ ’cause all the OGs like, ‘That’s our sound right there but Memphis don’t stick together,’ people used to say that a lot. Another city ran off with the sound.
“So I was like, ‘Shit, why ain’t nobody, of the artists that are on, why ain’t nobody just representing that crunk shit then?’ The artists that from the city. It was still a few artists from the city, but when I went back and looked, Three 6 [Mafia] was saying they was the King of crunk too. They was saying they the real kings of crunk.”
He added: “So I was just like, ‘Bruh, I gotta do this shit,’ And my music was already crunk. Like ‘Stamp Out’ was crunk as fuck without me saying that it was crunk. So it was like I been doing this, making crunk music, so I was like, ‘I might as well stamp it.’”
