When People ask what is the Hip Hop Scene like in Nashville, TN, many would tell you Ducko McFli is arguably one of the reason why Nashville has a hip hop scene at all. A Natural Music enthusiast, Ducko began his career as a producer, developing his skills working with local talent.
Ducko later emerged onto the spotlight having partnered with another aspiring rapper, Chancellor Warhol, forming a duo known as THE N.O.B.O.T.S. (No Other Band Offers This Sound) blending real hip hop rhymes, with pop & dubstep beats. A sound never heard before, and produced solely by Ducko, garnering mass appeal for the pair as they began to pack night clubs and performance halls all over town.
After the success of that project, Ducko became well known for his production, and began working with emerging artist and companies through out the city offering up instrumentation for albums, sports videos, and advertisements. Still searching for his own sound he began releasing his “The Return of the Soul” instrumental mix tape series, which would later gain him state wide exposure after winning The Nashville Scene’s Best Hiphop instrumental album of the year. This would also lead in to his dive into beat battles as a way to become more aware of what his competition was up to. Teaming up with fellow Nashville producer and long time friend SykSense the two entered the SoundTrack Beat battle as THE FANS. The two would work together tirelessly, establishing an explosive chemistry and a mind blowing sound, winning them notoriety and trophies as beat battle champions! This ultimately lead to them meeting Toronto based producer Boi-1da, who was experiencing a successful run of hits himself, tearing up the charts with records for mainstream artist DRAKE. The Fans soon signed a production deal with Boi-1da, giving ducko the mainstream access he needed to become a true hit maker.
