Upon hearing the words Double Deuce Duo Duplicate Deluxe, one might immediately picture a stacked burger, shining in all of its glory (or grease), ready for the taking. However, when comes to the Austin based trio, 5-D, those words come as the foundation to their name, and a story of their past. Made up of RuDi, HBZ and Cron the group initially was divided into other groups known as Rhymestack and SubKulture Patriots (SKP). However upon realizing the potential found within the three members, they ultimately decided to create a Duplicate Deluxe product, and thus 5-D was born.
Upon listening to their latest track “Burger Cheese” their talent becomes apparent as the crispy beat rings through the speakers and engaging lyrics begin to entangle you in their metaphors. Their sound brings you back to 90’s New York hip-hop while keeping it new and refreshing.
So…”What’s a burger without the cheese? Plain as fuck..that’s what.” In other words..what’s a weekend without 5-D…i’ll let you figure out the rest.
Keep an eye out for their self-titled EP to drop in 2020.

Stream it now. Gromo on the making “Nuke”:
“ It was important for me with “Nuke” to take the listener somewhere. My favorite albums by artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Mobb Deep, and Dr. Dre all take the listener on a journey into their world. The music reflects their realities. With “Nuke”, I want to take you into the world of mind and imagination of Gromo. When I first created the song, the idea was to cross-pollinate the energy of EDM with the rawness and gritty Hip-Hop.”
