Who they have worked with: Trey Songz, J. Holiday, Ciara, Tank, Day 26, Paul Wall, John Legend
How did you decide to combine?
Yiego: We’ve actually been together for a while, kind of grew up together. We started as a trio.
Duece: But, at first, we were suuuuuper whack. Terrible, just terrible!
Yiego: But after a lot of rehearsals, trying out different members [and] a couple people quitting on us, we decided that we blend and worked better as a duo. It made more sense.
How did you get your big break?
Duece: We created it. We surrounded ourselves with people that believed in us as much as we did. We did and are doing for ourselves what a major label would do anyway. It’s the same process. We just have to work harder when the budget is smaller. But I say why not invest my money into my dream.
How do you describe your musical style?
Yiego: We call our music Raw’n B music, which is basically diary music. People are the most raw and real when they’re writing in their diaries or journals. We just say it out loud. Our debut album is called Puppets. We’ve gotten the comment that if you mix the Thriller album and the Purple Rain album, you get our Puppets album, which is the scariest thing we’ve ever heard in our life. Those are some impossible shoes to fill.
How can our readers keep up with you?
