an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape (case sensitive) is the follow-up to Duckwrth’s breakout debut album, I’M UUGLY. Upon the release of I’M UUGLY in September 2016, Duckwrth proved himself as an artist who “defies categorization.” (San Francisco Chronicle) The project’s standout, “I’m Dead” featuring Sabrina Claudio, racked up over 1.3M streams on Spotify and the music video was praised for “bringing a fresh set of eyes and ears to the world of hip hop.” (Milk) Duckwrth followed up the album with the release of the loosie, “BOY,” which was highlighted by the Los Angeles Times in their “California Sounds” features, and capped off summer with The Fader premiere of the audio for “MICHUUL.”
A multi-faceted creative, Duckwrth’s artistic outlets extend outside of music and into design, fashion and video. Along with creating unique artwork for every track from I’M UUGLY, Duckwrth’s gender-fluid clothing designs have been featured everywhere from LA Weekly to Nylon. His music videos have earned placements from the likes of The Fader, NOWNESS, and Hypebeast, to name a few. Bringing a unique identity of masculinity and femininity to his music, Duckwrth’s vivacious and free-spirited approach has earned him comparisons to a millennial Prince or Jimi Hendrix. This embrace of individuality and passion to push his art into unknown territory has led Duckwrth to create his most ambitious body of work yet, an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape.
