Every once in a while, in the midst of an era in hip-hop where you literally don’t even have to rap to have a chart-topping single in the genre, an artist shines a little brighter. Right now, it’s Duckwrth, an LA rapper who doesn’t sound like he’s following any kind of trend with his production and lyrical execution. There are moments that feel like Outkast and N.E.R.D., and then moments that feel completely unique. There are rappers who are trying to be rappers, and then there are artists who happen to have chosen hip-hop as a medium. Duckwrth is the latter. The 30-year-old rapper hits Paper Tiger on Halloween. If you’re trying to figure out where hip-hop is going, hit this show up.
