Duck Down Entaprizez Signs With Koch, Readies New Bootcamp LP


DownEntaprizez has inked a distribution

deal with Koch. After 2 1/2 years of not having an outlet for their music, the

artists are already in the studio recording material for a new Bootcamp Clik

album, which is slated for an October 8th release. The label is home to such

artists as Smif-N-Wessun, Buckshot, Blackmoon & others. Duck Down is planning

to drop a Bootcamp Clik album, " Chosen Few," October 8th & will

also serve as a distribution outlet for new artists. "This deal gives Duck

Down the opportunity to give our fans more music than we have ever before,"

Dru Ha, CEO of Duck Down told

Earlier in the

year, Smif-N-Wessun signed a deal with Rawkus, prior to label's problems with

MCA. While the rest of the Duck Down artists will be distributed by Koch, Dru

Ha said "Smif-N-Wessun will remain under the Duck Down / Rawkus / MCA umbrella.

Rawkus has moved their album to 2003 release." Smif-N-Wessun will release

a new single, "Spit Again," later this month.

"We are coming

out of the box swinging," Dru continued. "The deal also provides us

with the chance to grow as a label as we will offer artists outside the Boot

Camp (who are seeking distribution and specialty deals) alternatives to the

limited distribution choices that are available now within the industry."
