Rooted in punk-rock, LA rapper Duckwrth has done nothing but experiment and surprise fans with his sounds up until this point. His style flies anywhere from screaming over the vocal-tearing notes of "Start a Riot" off the Spider-verse soundtrack to the funky R&B grooves of "I'M DEAD". THE FALLING MAN is Duckwrth's first true attempt at creating an immersive, cohesive project; that is filled to the brim with emotion.
The project opens with a punch—"BOW" offers lush, lustful vocals before delivering the punch that this album will be just as unpredictable as past works. The tape's lush instrumentation blends R&B, hip-hop, and punk elements while Duckwrth traverses through topics. Over the course of the 8-song EP, the multi-talented artist explores love, power, and death with the fervor of an artist who understands the importance of this tape. THE FALLING MAN's evocative lyrics are reflected by all those involved—including Kiana Ledé, Terrace Martin, Medasin, Rico Nasty, Mr. Carmack, Allan Kingdom, and NoMBe.
THE FALLING MAN sounds like Duckwrth hasn't just dipped his toes in the fountain of love, but instead dived in heart first. In doing so, Duckwrth has got a few drops on us and shown us the passionate thoughts that now run through his mind.
