Last December, HBO officially made The Wire a cultural pastime when it aired during a heavily nostalgic marathon.
Jermaine Crawford was 14-years-old when he took on the role of tragic hero Duquan “Dukie” Weems and he got a reality check as he recalls “actual drug busts” taking place while they were filming.
Since then, Crawford, 22, has traveled taken by his cousin Tristan “Mack” Wilds and contributed to the ever evolving R&B game. When asked about the current state of R&B, especially as it constantly bumps heads with Hip-Hop for viability, Crawford thinks the genre will even more past its traditional definition in the next 10 years. But he still feels the bass will always be present.
Speaking of bass, you can find plenty of that in his succinct but sweet EP 4Play T3ois, which you can hear below. Don’t hesitate to buy it on iTunes as well.
