What the duck is going on?







   
Yesterday I was present at the Watch The Duck x The King Of The South, T.I's video shoot for "Girlfriend" from WTD's 'Anatidaephobia'(meaning: the fear a duck is watching you) project.  The concoction of Watch The Duck's sound which is a fusion of dubstep, soul, r&b, hip hop and trapstep along with the south's most beloved practitioner of the microphone art, The Rubberban Man's lyrics came as a delightful and creative surprise.  The set up was at one of Atl's most eclectic, subterranean discoteque, MJQ frequented by lovers of good music and the underground. Rite Media as usual showed out transforming the venue into an artful wonderland, a mesh up of vibrant colors, dancing lights, fog, and eccentric beautiful characters parading around infecting each other with creative, dynamic, and positive energy.  Fellow artists and creatives such as Trae The Truth, Tabius Tate, and Attitude to name a few showed up to show their support.   Throughout the day and night I arrived at the realization that those of us present were witnessing a step forward in Atlanta's music scene while watching the dreams of Watch the Duck become realities. You should no longer fear the duck watching you.. Instead be very afraid if you aren't yet watching or listening to the duck. For now you can peep the images we captured and stay tuned for the "SamOffThaRecord Experience" webisode from this night dropping next week.
