Mr Lyons, born Frederick Lyons, also known as Duke Fountaine. Born April 24, at the Historical Grady Hospital, that' in Atlanta Ga for y'all OUT of Towners. I grew up in Vine City as Duke, a nickname giving to me because his Father was crazy about Westerns, specifically John Wayne aka The Duke. When my father passed he moved to Fourth Ward where I spent the rest of his childhood.
When I was about 12ish my mother bought me a radio for my birthday, it was small and only had one speaker and a tape deck. I played it everywhere I went. One Friday afternoon this show came on, The Fresh Party, the 1st song that caught my attention was "King of Rock" by Run DMC. That was the day I fell in Love with HIP-Hop.
