Los Angeles native DUCKWRTH released his new song “MICHUUL.” at the end of the summer, the first signed to Republic Records. Produced by Alexander Spit, the infectious funk infused hip-hop track is the first single off his new mixtape “AN XTRA UUGLY MIXTAPE”, set to drop on November 3rd .
“When I was a young Duck, one of my favourite super heroes was Michael Jackson, This is an ode to disco nights, art school chicks, and the moon walker himself.” shared DUCKWRTH about the song (via The Fader).
With his uniquely distinctive style, DUCKWRTH offers artfully crafted bars over fast beats with the eccentricity and originality of a young Andre 3000.
Once again, the artist stays true to form by delivering another visual standout with the video for “MICHUUL.”. Directed by Lino Asana, the video is a tribute to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson and features DUCKWRTH moonwalking along with the lyrics, “I just wanna shine like Mike, I might moonwalk on sight. I just wanna (I just), I just wanna ride my bike. And if you don’t mind we can ride all night”.
DUCKWRTH recently performed the track on BET’s new series THE RUNDOWN. Check it out here
His new project, “AN XTRA UUGLY MIXTAPE”, is the follow-up to DUCKWRTH’s breakout debut, “I’M UUGLY”, which dropped last year and featured mega hit “I’m Dead”. The busy multi-faceted artist is also set to embark on a US tour with Indonesian rapper Rich Chigga this week.
