Watch Dud Music Spit Some Knowledge

The Rapfest continues to be the curator of fresh, original hip-hop content. This year we have presented some of the hottest ciphers with features from The LOXMurda MookChris Rivers, and more. Along with ciphers, we have presented installments of our Mean 16 series which allows buzzing artists to showcase their lyrical ability. Locksmith and Joyner Lucas recently delivered hard-hitting bars as part of the series.

The RapFest held their inaugural breaking artist showcase at Santos Party House. 15 acts hit the stage to perform in front of judges MTV’s Rob Markman, Coke Boys /Swanky Music Group Artist VelousRocko Rathon of The Rapfest/The Source Magazine, and Reazy of We Tha Best Music. Dud Music was one of the stand-out acts of the night. As we did with our Breaking Artist Showcase winner Grizz, The Rapfest invited Dud to be apart of our Mean 16 series. The Brentwood, NY native brings new heat to the Hazel-produced beat that was featured in The Rapfest Cipher Series 7 featuring Vinny Cha$eManolo Rose, and D. Di’Yari.
