Label: JWP Records
"Rappin' Duke" was kind of a jokey song, where rapper Shawn Brown spit the rhymes as if he was John Wayne (The Duke). This song became widly popular in 1985-s if conceptual rap was a new thing-and was forever immortalized by The Notorious B.I.G. in "Juicy," when he spit the line, "Remember Rappin' Duke, dah-ha, dah-ha." Indeed, we do.
