James Dukes, also known as IMAKEMADBEATS, is an artist/producer/engineer and founder of Unapologetic, a creative company. His professional career started at Quad Studios in Manhattan, working with music industry stars like Ludacris, Solange Knowles, & Busta Rhymes and eventually placing music with TV shows, commercials, and movies. After moving back to Memphis, IMAKEMADBEATS created Unapologetic, a company built on the idea of building boldly and unapologetically yourself in ways that inspired others to do the same.

In 2019, Unapologetic launched the Unapologetic Youth Scholarship Program as a way to help youth learn and exercise their passions in music.
