Best Hip-Hop: Duece Bug
It's been a prolific year for Norwalk's hardcore-vocalist-turned-MC. Duece Bug just released his second full-length, Love, Duece Bug, and it features appearances by heavy hitters like Mr. Lif and Blacastan. The video for his first single, "Stress Love," features the rapper freaking out when he discovers that he's his girl's "other guy." Catch him live with Jus Allah of Jedi Mind Tricks and Blacastan at Acoustic Cafe in Bridgeport on Aug. 27, or opening for Royce da 5'9" at Toad's Place on Sept. 10.
