DuQuaye is an Atlanta based artist originally from Bridgeport, Ct. Beginning his career as a marketing intern at Patchwerk Recording Studios Quaye knew he was going to rock the Mic one day soon. After 5 years at Patchwerk DuQuaye accepted a job as an A&R for Mizay Entertainment, owned by the one and only Debra Antney.
Antney has managed the careers of artists and producers such as Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, Waka Flocka, Lex Luger, and OJ Da Juice Man to name a few. After previously working with DuQuaye developing artists, Antney was aware of the work ethic and dedication that DuQuaye possessed. When the need arose for an A&R to aid with the growing roster of talent housed at Mizay Entertainment, Antney was so confident in DuQuaye’s abilities she put him in charge of music for all of her artists and producers.
DuQuaye has managed the career of Super-Producer, Mike Will who has produced char-topping songs for Superstars such as Jay Z, Rhianna, Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Future, 2 Chains, Kelly Rowland, Miley Cirus, and many others. After working behind the scenes for several years DuQuaye decided it was time to take center stage and step into the spotlight.
With the help of famed producer Big Fraze (Lil Kim, Cee Lo Green, Tiffany Foxx, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, and many others) to help him perfect his new and unique sound, DuQuaye was able to release songs such as, Where You At (feat. Keke Wyatt), Rihanna, I’m Fly, Look Momma, and FlexN.
With the single “Rihanna” taking the Social Media world by storm , you know I had to bring you all the RA Mag Exclusive. I called DuQuaye personally just to make sure we could get the exclusive and he said “you know RA gets the latest.”
