About Black Duck

Black Duck
:
BIO



Black Duck, the "Grown Man" aka "Black Ozzy," Alabama bred, west coast living; distinguishing himself as a rap & metal
artist melds the two genres into an amazing & complex tale of real life in his captivating lyrics while he sings and raps.



Noticing he had a gift for music as a child around the age of 12, Black Duck realized he could put words together to
rhyme in a syncopated pattern like a drum cadence. His strong deep-rooted love for music came from the many musical
influences that surrounded him. "The people who influenced me were mainly my older brothers and sisters. I.m the
youngest of 8 kids, so by them playing records all the time, the love of music was instilled in me early on. Later I found
my own favorites in other genres of music and I remember my brothers would raise their brow when they would hear me
listening to groups like Scorpion or Cinderella. I am the „Black Duck' of the family - different and very open minded."
Already performing in dance contests and talent shows, his older brothers ended up forming a rap group, "Soul Rhythm
Soldiers" and used Duck as their secret weapon who was already a freestyle assassin coming into ciphers and killing it.
Thereafter, Black Duck joined and toured the nation as front man with the band, "5 fingers of funk." Always broadening
his musical horizons, it would be no time before crossing over into the rock-n-roll aspect of the game, forming and
fronting the hard rock band, "Tragic Circus" (now Iron Circus) and
ending up fronting and becoming a part of the metal rock band "Vital
Ash."

When asked what makes him unique and set apart from the rest, he
explains; "I have never heard music done like this, I am a street rapper,
with all kinds of life to talk about, but I structure my songs from a white
rocker kid point of view or a metal slayer trapped and upset in the way
he feels his favorite music was taken and changed." Black Duck has
opened and performed with artist such as Joe Clair, Anthony Andersen,
Ice Cube, Rocket Dial, Mac 10, Run DMC, Tallboy Shotgun, Too Short,
ScarFace, Bone Thugs, Hugh Jaz Orchestry, Crazy Bone, Brotha Lynch,
Lite Foot and Drowning Pool.



Black Duck's goal in the music industry is to play his part as a true
member of the Hip-Hop community. He sees Rap/HipHop music in a
state of a resistance and that the originators have an important role to
play in setting examples for children and all music listeners alike. Black
Duck feels it is his duty to save the music from the big corporate labels,
some of which who water down the music and only push faulty top 40
songs along. While they continue shoving the hollowness of the music
down the throats of listeners, rap is in the slaughterhouse being
butchered, so Black Duck wants to step forward to show otherwise.



Personally, he is probably the only black man you will find that likes to
hike, fish, camp, climb cliffs, burn 15 foot bonfires, shoot rifles, water
ski and snow ski. Black Duck's motto, "This ain.t no bullshit! Get it
how you live or just „Blow Yo Brains Out.". Duck feels, "We all have a
purpose in life and looking for its. bliss but until we find it we have to
keep doing what our souls lead us to do, mine leads me to make this
music."



Black Duck is inarguably at the top of his game preparing to deliver

his highly anticipated senior project, "Grown & Flashy: They Call Me

Black Ozzy" where he will give substance and supreme originality;

feeding your ear and leaving an impact as the year of the „grown

rapper....his legacy will continue.
