L.A.’s Duckwrth has come through with another incredibly wavy banger. His new track “Tamagotchi” is an unexpected nod to the pocket-sized digital pet craze you might remember from the turn of the millennium. With wailing guitar, Tamagotchi bleeps, a sick beat, and a healthy dose of sarcasm, Duckwrth’s latest song is one of the most infectious rap songs we’ve heard in a while, as addictive as taking care of a Tamagotchi itself. Listen our exclusive premiere of “Tamagotchi” below.

Whether he’s designing clothes, directing visuals, touring with Anderson Paak or appearing on festival lineups including Lollapalooza, Afropunk and Rolling Loud, Duckwrth continues to demonstrate his abilities as a truly multifaceted creative. “Tamagotchi” is from the rapper’s upcoming an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape set to drop November 3, a follow-up to his buzzed about I’M UUGLY project from 2016.

As Duckwrth explains himself, “On XTRA UUGLY, I wanted to go bigger, go uuglier. I wanted to challenge myself, and challenge you that listen. I want to smash genres into pieces, and leave you wondering what the funk just happened. My name is Duckwrth, and I want you to get UUGLY(er). Rage on.”

Stay tuned for his fresh batch of bangers, including the previously-released “MICHUUL” which you can revisit below.
