Buckshot Presents: "The Common Knowledgy Of The Entertainment Industry"

Available November 23rd

Buckshot is the co-founder of Duck Down Music & the lead MC for Black Moon & Boot Camp Clik. In 2005, Buckshot reinvented himself with his group project with 9th Wonder, entitled, Chemistry. The duo released a second title, The Formula, in 2008 and are currently in the mixing process of their third album, The Solution, in stores in 2011. In 2009, Buckshot teamed with KRS-ONE for their group album, Survival Skills.
2010 marks the 15 Year Anniversary of Duck Down Music. Buckshot has taken his 15 year experience and has crafted a pamphlet entitled The Common Knowledgy Of The Entertainment Industry. The pamphlet is comprised of three stages. Buckshot first educates readers on the 'Basics' of the entertainment industry providing his definitions for terms associated within the business. Buckshot then transitions to the 'Framework,' or inner-workings of a music label and answers commonly posed questions that he receives from fans & interviewers. In the final stage, Buckshot unveils 'How It All Works,' and illustrates the process of putting the knowledge to use & executing proposed goals.

Accompanying the pamphlet is a 13-track album provided as a download card, which can also serve as a page place-holder. The album features original Buckshot music based on the concepts from within the pamphlet.

Buckshot, along with co-owner of Duck Down Music, Dru Ha, has been the Executive-Producer of each title released by the long-standing and resilient Independent label. He's been part of over 3 million records sold, toured the globe performing his hits & worked with greats such as: Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, Tupac Shakur, Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, Funkmaster Flex & more. Buckshot has created original music for ESPN, The History Channel, Pizza Hut, Belvedere, HBO, Smirnoff, 2K Sports & others. He's been a part of campaigns through Duck Down's marketing arm, Vision, for companies such as: Coca-Cola, Mark Ecko Brand, Sketchers, 2K Sports, Scion, Olde English, Rockstar Games & more. Within the pamphlet, Buckshot provides insight on the many caps he wears, ranging from recording & performing artist, label owner and marketing executive.
