Dee Duchess, an emerging rap artist from Evansville, Indiana, moves back and forth between the troubles that come with being an authentic, uncensored soul and the general chaos of life in her new single “Whole Lotta.” Her straight-no-chaser rhymes coast over the track’s booming drums and rumbling bass notes while maintaining Dee‘s cool bravado. The rap starlet’s relaxed monotone flow allows her to maintain her cool and remain unaffected by the whirlwind of negativity that tries to derail her dreams.While repeating the “whole lotta” refrain like a mantra, Duchess calls attention to the many things that are weighing on her shoulders. But she also shows us that she doesn’t plan on letting any of those things break her down. And this isn’t just idle talk from someone who’s never had their spirit tested. Dee recorded “Whole Lotta” over the phone while she serves out a 26 year prison sentence for attempted murder of a Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Deputy. Undeterred by her circumstances, Duchess keeps her head up and her eyes focused on the future – an EP that is tentatively titled GTL.
With “Whole Lotta”, Duchess reflects on the reality of her life in particular and the lives of many people in general. Her unfazed flow and unfiltered lyrics sell her message in a way that doesn’t feel forced. And the raw, DIY vibe of the production helps make this song feel like a genuine, unfiltered moment. Hit play and let this driven and determined rapper show you that she’s still got a whole lot to give. Even though a whole lotta f**ks, she don’t give.
