I first caught wind of WatchTheDuck when their super hot video for their single “Poppin’ off” hit my inbox. It was everything and then some. Combining their “soul step” roots with some serious dance moves and a larger than life duck. The Alabama natives sure know how to turn any room into a dance party. If you aren’t familiar with these guys get acquainted, because I have a feeling that they definitely will be “poppin off” in 2013
Hailing from Alabama and currently residing in Atlanta, the group’s members include Eddie Smith III, Jesse Rankins and Jonathan Wells and a duck? Yes the fourth member of the group is a duck, who shines as the groups mascot. The reason why? Their mantra surrounds the concept of a duck, Eddie states “Everybody sees the duck traveling smoothly on top of the water,” but nobody sees it kicking hard as hell under it, struggling to stay afloat. We would always say ‘WatchTheDuck’ whenever we were in certain industry scenarios, when everyone’s your friend and is trying to be of importance. We say it to each other to kind of lighten each other’s mood.”
