Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils head back out on the road this Friday with their new slate of F. Scott Fitzgerald inspired tunes -The Open Affairs.
Last time, they headed out with Rhymesayers artist Blueprint and needed merchandise to earn their keep and make new friends. They had nothing, so we whipped up the Monsters EP and got it moving in time for their month long run across the US and Canada. Monsters is an incredible video and a solid five tunes, but it didn't have a damn thing to do with The Roaring Twenties.
Suddenly, history repeated itself and another month long run appeared, this time on their way down to the SXSW Festival in Austin. This time they decided to go into the Kilzone on a cold frigid Toronto night, armed with a duty free bottle of tequila and a good idea of what they wanted to do. The love child of this night bore The Open Affairs EP. The record drops March 26, but you can pre-order the CD on Amazon and the digital at MadDukez.com today.
In Mad Dukez words, "I don't know what it is, but I'm down to roll. This is wild as hell, I'm 'bout to go". All this debauchery goes down in the month of March, so check the tour dates and have an Open Affair.

Born Donté Beasley from East Cleveland, Ohio, Portiya began to develop the skill for rap at age 17 and soon began recording and collaborating with a partner, The duo named after the city's area code forming the group "216" captured the attention of musical veteran Derek Jackson which would lead to a deal with Universal Records but due to creative differences, Beez Portiya decided a solo career was in his best interest.
In the current state of music, where record sells are determined by the click of button, the Cleveland MC is solo and having dropped hot singles “White Girl” and current radio favorite, “Antedope”, is ready to take the game by storm.
