Artist of the Month - MAINSTREAM 210


He has been call the World Star Hip Hop Squasher! Clifton Dukes better known as Mainstream is one of the last lyrical rappers left unsigned. Starting to rap at the young age of 12, he soon realized that this was something that came naturally. "Performing in front of others is a part of who I am. I started off wanting to be a background dancer. I went to all the school dances to show off my moves. Other kids in school played sports and got good grades but the school dance was my time to shine." Mainstream got his first taste of performing in front of an audience doing talent shows ranging from 2nd grade all the way through middle school showing off his dance moves in front of his peers. Once relocated in San Antonio, it wasn't long before Mainstream was close friends with a few young local rappers in San Antonio who would throw parties and host shows at local clubs with his group. They would perform songs on stage and also print up and distribute "Mixtape" CD's in the neighborhood as well as throughout the city at different Mom and Pop establishments that did not mind helping young local talent promote and sell their music. " I never really thought about being a rapper. I just did it for fun and it was easy. When I moved to San Antonio and saw what they were able to do with their music and make money off of selling their own CDs, I thought I could do the same thing not necessarily better but like a professional. That’s where I got the name “Mainstream.” I was going to do what they did but I was going to do it like a Mainstream rapper. That would set me apart from the rest." Once he began rapping on a constant basis with the other local rappers in the area it didn’t take long to realize Mainstream had something special. “A willingness to rap consistently and a hunger for a dynamic and charismatic rapper is needed in the industry today. I could possibly be one of the next premium rapper s of my generation.”
