2022 HipHopDX Rising Star Duke Deuce returned on Thursday (May 5) with an energized new video for his latest single “CRUNKSTARZ.”

The visual finds the Tennessee titan hyping up a crowd with his new track during a show in an abandoned warehouse as he rotates between bouts of melody and straight bars.

“Duke Deuce homie how it feel/N-gga can’t complain it’s a good year/Living like a crunkstar it feel so real/Rolling loud crowd really give a n-gga chills,” the 2022 Rising Star croons.

The latest single from the Quality Control signee comes after he linked up with Juicy J for his NBA Playoffs Anthem “Step Back” earlier in May. In the track’s video, the Memphis native donned a Ja Morant Grizzlies jersey and gave the 2022 NBA Most Improved Player Award victor his flowers during his verse.

“Hoe you hear that chat I’m big balling like Ja Morant/In Hollywood too hollyhood I’m where the freaky models at,” Deuce raps.

Duke Deuce, Chuck Inglish & More Defend Isaiah Rashad Following Sex Tape Outing

Aside from pushing out new tunes, Duke Deuce also came to the defense of his friend Isaiah Rashad, who was outed by a leaked sex tape in February. The 30-year-old plugged the name of his new track to demonstrate that anyone who cared about the TDE rapper’s personal life did not meet the definition of a “Crunkstar.”

“Another man’s preference ain’t got shit to do with me nor anyone else,” Deuce tweeted out. “Isaiah Rashad you a great mf artist keep your head up brother. CRUNKSTARZ dgaf what others think of them.”

“CRUNKSTARZ” will appear on Duke Deuce’s upcoming Crunkstar project. The last time fans got a full offering from the “Crunk Ain’t Dead” rapper was in 2021 with his Duke Nukem project, which featured appearances from A$AP Ferg, Offset, the late Young Dolph, Latto and more.
