Boot Camp Clik, Heltah Skeltah, Black Moon, OGC, Smif N Wessun, they’re the classic rap groups of the mid to late 90’s that helped bring about New York’s resurgence in Hip-Hop. The company that brought us these groups was Duck Down Enterprises and their CEO, Dru Ha, has a message for everyone, they’re back. In part one of this interview Dru Ha speaks at length about the founding of Duck Down, the massive collaboration that almost was with 2Pac, and how Eminem nearly ended up on the Duck Down roster. In part two Dru spreads some knowledge on why certain artists hit while other don’t, how he gets around some of the issues that come about from being an independent label, and what he would like to see more artists do with their demos. Check out part1 and part2 of the interview.
