WatchÂ Dujeous videos and read more about the group named inÂ XXL’s “Top 5 Live Hip Hop Bands Not Including the Roots”, after the jump.
Live Hip Hop Band Dujeous has been putting in work since the 90’s. After a few mixtape releases, they dropped their first official Album City Limits, in 2004. The rest as they say, is history. Touring France, Poland, The US, backing other artists (i.e. Lauryn Hill, Skyzoo, Immortal Technique, E.O.W), producing songs for Dipset, Saigon, Keith Murray and others, producing songs for movies and television, and dropping several singles, albums and videos, Dujeous always rocks the house whether in their hometown NYC, or out on tour.
Longtime Dujeous fans (such as myself) remember packed NYC nightclubs with a heavily female, drunk, rowdy crowd singing along to Choruses of “Good Green”, “Spilt Milk”, “Cinematic”, “Sometimes”, and one of my personal favorites, “All MC’s”, from their Double LP, “City Limits” and Game 7 mixtape. But you may have been nodding your head to some Dujeous sounds recently, without even knowing it. If you watch Crank Yankers, you may not have known that the theme song is Dujeous backing Rhymefest. Watchers of theÂ HBO series Entourage were treated to a Nas song “War Remix”,Â featuringÂ Saigon, which was co-produced by Taylormade. And if you didn’t know, Dipset groupÂ Purple City’s “Gun Go” feat.Â Jim Jones &Â Juelz Santana, was produced by Taylormade & Dujeous, as well as songs by Keith Murray, Immortal Technique and several other hip hop artists.
