Jay Buck is hoping to capitalize on the absence in the marketplace of Florida based artist Kodak Black, with the release of his Swiper Season EP to be released on The Crown Recordings/Atlantic Records. The E.P. is produced by Grammy nominated producer DJ Hardwerk (Cardi B, Major Lazer, Camila Cabello).
Kingg Bucc’s single “Big Shot,” is the first single off the Swiper Season E.P. which drops in about a week (December 6th) just in time to make it in your Christmas stocking. The Crown will host a series of Kingg Bucc meet and greets and release parties in cities across the U.S.
“There’s the black market and then there’s the street market! Anyone from the hood knows that if you want something, there are ways to get it,” says Bucc. “I was interested in producing and swiped some computer equipment, a keyboard, and a MPC. At the time I had no idea how to use them, but I knew the producers who I looked up to – Kanye and Timbaland – created their early tracks on an MPC. I never thought I’d become a rapper!”
Born in Haiti, Kingg Bucc spent a few years in The Bahamas where he actually used to eating pigeons when he was hungry he stated in a “Off the Porch” interview, and grew up in Miami’s Little Haiti and Victory Park. Bucc has some catchy melodies, memorable punchlines, but he is a character which should all help in winning over some of Kodak Black’s fans who was sentenced to prison for four years this year.
