MC Duke

MC Duke

Real Name:
Anthony Mark Hilaire
Profile:
MC Duke got his big break when the emcee who had won the DMC MC Battle got on stage at the DMC World Championships after party and announced that he would battle anybody in the house, MC Duke got up and beat him. Derek B saw what happened and as he had just signed to Music Of Life asked Duke to meet him at the label the next day. While waiting for Derek B, Duke met the owner Simon Harris, and rapped live as he didn't have a demo, needless to say the rest is history.

Later he joined the Shut Up And Dance label and released two 12 inches with DJ Leader 1 under the name I.C.3..
He then went on to produce for Boogie Times/Suburban Base label and set up the Hard Disk and Bluntly Speaking Vinyl labels.
