Video: Rey Resurreccion – “Duck Down”

San Jose Rapper Drops A Hazy, Lo-Fi Filtered Video For the Third Single From Forthcoming Album, Premiered By stupidDOPE



The Video:

Curating a distinct sound he dubs as “Old Rust New Bang,” the layering of heavy beats and nostalgic samples with laid-back vocals, Rey Resurreccion is making noise along the West Coast music scene. Having opened up for legendary artists including Souls of Mischief, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and Hieroglyphics, the multi-talented producer/emcee is no stranger to the game. Rey Resurreccion paid tribute to his hometown of San Jose with a couple of colorfully smooth videos for bangers like “Heart Of The City” and “Let It Bang,” featured on forthcoming debut album Heart Of The City. Today, Rey Resurreccion releases a retro hip-hop, lo-fi filtered video for the album’s third single, “Duck Down,” premiering via stupidDOPE.

Duck Down” is produced by DJ Goldenchyld of the Bangerz and plays like the proper motivational song to anyone making his or her way on the come up. Through hard-hitting drums, crisp snares, and carefully woven samples, Rey Resurreccion’s chic lyrical delivery guides listeners through the music game struggles he’s encountered. “The struggle I mention in the song is all about paying dues; the same dues everyone has to pay in the game in order to get to the next level, sharpening my craft, recording, producing, performing, studying the game, and growing a fan base.”

Kicking off next month, Rey will be headlining the Nice Dreams Tour alongside J. Lately. The multi-city tour will begin in California, pass through Washington and Oregon, then finish up in San Francisco. With his debut album, Heart Of The City, nearing, Reyhas given fans a lot to look forward to. “It’s been a long time coming and I still feel like I’m learning and growing, but at this point I feel like I have enough experience to start making my way on the up and up.”
