Duck Down Artists Collaborate For the Alzheimer’s Research Foundation

October 20, 2011

I absolutely love it when hip hop uses its powers for good!!  Dru Ha from the infamous (and legendary) Duck Down Music (home to the likes of Black Moon, Sean Price and T-dot’s own, Promise) took a heart-wrenching situation and turned it into something positive that will hopefully influence thousands of others in an inspiring way…. take a read below:

 

Earlier this year Dru Ha (co-owner of Duck Down Music) lost his Father to a 10 year battle with Alzheimer’s. In his Father’s honor, Dru Ha announced that he will be running the ING New York City Marathon on November 6th in an effort to raise donations & awareness about the horrific disease that affects over 5 million people in the United States alone. To date, Dru Ha has raised over $10,000 in donations.

Duck Down artists, Buckshot, Smif N Wessun, Promise & Double-O, of Kidz In The Hall, dedicated their time to creating an original song, “Run To Remember,” in recognition of Dru Ha running the NYC Marathon. Double-O produced the track. The song was recorded at Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY.

Today, the song is available exclusively at iTunes for only 99 cents. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Research foundation.

Duck Down Music has also created a custom Run to Remember Dri-Fit Shirt available for purchase today. The proceeds of the sales will also be donated to the Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. “Run To Remember” dri-fit made of 100% polyester moisture management, anti-microbial performance fabric is perfect for running or working out at the gym. The shirt features the original Duck Down running man logo with purple print, which represents the official colors of the Alzheimer’s organization. Dri-fit shirt comes folded & polybagged.
