Dyme-A-Duzin Spotlights His Brooklyn Neighborhood In New ‘Crown Fried’ Documentary [Premiere]
Dyme-A-Duzin has a new documentary called Crown Fried, which spotlights his neighborhood as well as serves as a precursor to his new album.
Donnovan Malik Blocker, better known around the way as Dyme-A-Duzin, has endeared himself to his hometown of Brooklyn, New York, plus fellow musicians the world over. The former Phony Ppl member has grown into a talented rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer with performing credits alongside Erykah Badu, The Roots, and Talib Kweli.
Dyme hasn’t been resting on his laurels despite being amongst top tier artistry. In fact, the man has been hard at work on deconstructing the meaning of circumstances and movements with his “Crown Fried” movement. Okayplayer is ecstatic to premiere his “Crown Fried” documentary, which serves as a precursor to his album of the same name.
Below, you can read his motivations behind putting such an idea together and share it with the world:
The #CrownFried movement is about overcoming the system. Breaking the cycles. Wearing your crown. Not letting your circumstances define you.

A versatile edutainer, Dyme-A-Duzin proves that he has his mind set on more than just Billboard chart placements. In fact, Dyme’s purpose behind “Crown Fried” is to spotlight his Crown Heights neighborhood and debunk the theory that the system defines where you or people who look like you end up because of the circumstances it creates. Directed by Luis Vazquez, viewers are taken on a journey with Dyme as he sheds light on his experiences growing up in Crown Heights, interviews with people close to him, skits, and music visuals to further describe just what to expect when Crown Fried the audio edition drops later this year.
It has been a long time coming, but Dyme is ready and up for the challenge, so without any further ado, please press play on the “Crown Fried” documentary below, and get an in-depth look at one of Brooklyn’s finest.
