Duck Down Artists
Duck Down Records
Duck Down Music is opening a Canadian branch as a breeding ground for new & exciting artists in the Canadian Territories. Duck Down is providing consulting, marketing & distribution to emerging Canadian talent (both producers & MCs) that the label feels has strong potential and represents the labels tributes for authentic, original music.
Leading the charge under the new Canadian-Divison is Toronto-based rapper, Promise.
Promise is the new definition for gospel Hip-Hop. Although he doesn't quote scriptures from the Bible in his raps, Promise blends conceptual songwriting and potent lyrical content with a focus on religion, life, love & the consciousness of mankind.
Labeled as a hip-hop sensation, Promise has a proven ability to take any person beyond the shallow surface of life. Distinctly layering his positive vibes with intricate wordplay has had Peace Magazine write; “[Promise has a] rhyme style reminiscent of Rakim.” He himself is quoted saying, “I’m impressed; they compare me to Nas, Common, Kanye West.” Promise comes with lyrical proficiency, reality based content, and moving. Inevitably, this man is well on his way to becoming one of the most distinguished artists of his time.
His first project, 'Awakening' is available now, June 28th (CD & digital in Canada; iTunes-only in all other territories). 'Awakening' boasts features from J.Ivy (Def Poetry), Jhene Aiko, and The World Famous Tony Williams (G.O.O.D Music) who lends his vocals on the lead track “Everyone Knows.” Production credits from E.Jones (SoulCouncil/IWW) and The Arcitype, in addition to industry newcomers King P & fellow Canadians, B-20 from Promise’s own team at Positivibes Productions.
