Brookfield Duece, Hip Hop artist from Oakland, California. Duece started his dive into music as a helping hand to other artists in the Oakland area. Soon after, Duece formed Major Ent. in 2004 with friends C-Major and Ducktape in Berkeley, California.
Duece connected with DJs “Project” and “The Profit” of Dominant Genetikz/Green Chair Music in San Francisco, California. Their sample based production style opened the mind of Duece helping him become a conceptual auteur with social, economic, and political subject matter. Duece completed a handful of mixtapes between 2012 and 2015 (“Cutting Room Floor Vol. 3”, “Training Camp”, “10 Speed”, “January”, “Stack$”, “Boondocks Saints 1 & 2”, “September”, and “Hoop Dreams”) with the latter containing Duece’s biggest song to date, “Screw Up”. That work was the fuel for traveling back and forth from Oakland to Portland promoting to the cities influencers DJ’s Klyph, StarChile, Cool Nutz, and OG One who now plays Duece’s music during most the Trail Blazers’ games.
Duece has spent a large part of 2017 creating America’s Orphans and a large part of 2018 shopping for distribution for the album with multiple labels until meeting J57 (with FiveSe7en Collective) through a mutual DJ connection, in November of 2018. Duece was offered distribution by Soulspazm Distribution in December 2018 through the endorsement given by J57.
