Today marks the release of “Super Soaker”, the debut single from Nowhere, the new collaborative EP between one of the most dynamic producers in the game, The Kickdrums, and the up-and-coming torchbearer for artistic-minded hip hop, Duckwrth. The vitriolic anthem for anti-police violence premiered on HillyDilly.com today and has been accompanied by a social media flash mob of dedicated fans and supporters in honor of the release. Duckwrth’s venomous lyrics are delivered in perfect sync with the masterfully crafted beat provided by The Kickdrums, one of the most consistently impressive producers around today.
Duckwrth and The Kickdrums were a natural pairing for a collaborative EP as both are independent-minded artists with a history of successful DIY releases. Duckwrth will be the latest emcee to cement Alex Fitts’ (The Kickdrums) reputation as a barometer for up-and-coming hip hop artists as he has previously worked with the likes of Kid Cudi, Casey Veggies, Freddie Gibbs and Outasight among others just prior to the artist achieving more widespread recognition.
Duckwrth has already garnered a cult following for his lyrical prowess and left-of-center delivery that calls to mind The Pharcyde, Tribe Called Quest and Mos Def. His participation in the TeamBackPack freestyles was the foundation for Duckwrth’s already international fanbase, and features on Noisey, Afropunk, Pigeons & Planes and Okayplayer regarding his latest mixtape, TaxFree V1, have since brought the artist to a new level of popularity.
