Underground Artist of the Month for March 2023


Among the most promising artists of this generation, Duckwrth is a dynamic and up-and-coming artist on the west coast. Duckwrth’s creative style is clearly influenced by seminal acts such as The Pharcyde and Tribe Called Quest as well as Gnarls Barkley and Outkast. As a major player in the advancement of Hip Hop as a cerebral art form, he retains a distinctive element that makes him stand out. His hip-hop is reminiscent of what true heads have loved and have gladly seen triumph into mainstream stardom.

Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Duckwrth has been living in San Francisco for a number of years. Featured in ads for Levis’s and Facebook, he models himself as an all-around artist. A true lover of creativity without limits, he expresses himself through his storytelling lyrics, video directing, photography, and graphic design as part of an art collective called ThemHellas and his own graphic design company BluuDragon.
