Duck City Music is a hip-hop movement which originated in Rand, West Virginia. (The hometown of NFL great Randy Moss. Rand University ) Witty and gritty best describes the crew’s sound. Often compared to many of the 1990s dopest Hip-Hop crews, such as Mobb Deep, DCM is a breath of fresh air from the saturated cookie cutter rap acts of today. Dope lyrics and rhymes are what Duck City Music hangs their hat on and is what separates them from the majority of mainstream artist/music out today.
While constantly recording new music, Duck City released Henny Blunts Condoms, The HBC You mixtape in January. Hosted by DJ Walt White (Valley Stream, NY), HBC You is a collection of recent freestyles and 4 original tracks from Duck City Music. Now available in the streets and online on mixtape sites Mixconnect.com, AudioMack.com, Spinrilla.com, and MixFactory.com. Also u can hit up #DuckCityMusic on any social media’s for your copy (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube). Duck city is also currently finishing up tracks for an upcoming mixtape project entitled “WV-N-ALC”. The mixtape will primarily consist of MCs CHJ (CookieHead Jenkins) and Ndakut with features from fellow Duck City MCS Santana Blue and DiagNosis over strictly Alchemist produced instrumentals.
Childhood friends, CHJ and Ndakut, began making music years ago as Ndakut was DJing and CHJ was a young, hungry, aggressive MC. Both being Golden Era Hip Hop music lovers, they decided to join forces and started creating their own music. Since then, Ndakut began to rhyme more and DJ/produce less, while CHJ continued to refine and develop his craft. The duo has opened for artists Ying Yang Twins, DJ Unk, and Freeway. DiagNosis, the nephew of Ndakut, has been absorbed in the Hip-Hop scene since a preteen. He recorded his first verse at age 11 and has continued to refine and develop his craft to become an incredibly well rounded lyricist.
“Fuck milkin the cow, I’m drainin all the cattle/ Niggaz up the river, I won’t give em a paddle!”- is a line from skilled MC CHJ on the track “Fuck Around” from the forthcoming mixtape WV-N-ALC. CHJ has released 3 prior mixtapes and has been on countless colorations with various WV artists including a track with New York hip-hop artist Grafh. Duck City plans to release 2-4 additional mixtapes soon after dropping the ALC project. “ Smuts I vary em, legendary I’m nasty/ I done cut more sluts than cesareans, Nigga that’s me!”- is a bar from Ndakut on the track “Barz” from the upcoming ALC project. Although having never released his own solo project, Ndakut has also done various features with other WV artists all while assisting with each CHJ project. DiagNosis released an EP entitled The Kid Assassin in the early 2000s and has been featured on a variety of songs with countless artists since then.
Duck City’s main objective is to continue to create their style of heavy bar/ punchline filled hip-hop in hopes of gaining new fans and listeners and reaching the masses of fans who are hungry for very witty, entertaining lyrics and rhymes. They are primed and ready to make an imprint on the hip-hop game and look forward to the challenge of doing so.
