Download:Bucks – Knock Knock
Buck$ is well known for his work and association with Dem Franchise Boyz and their hits “White Tee” & “Lean With It”, as well as the Trap Squad and the track “What’s Happening”. His most recent credits include two songs “Dealers & Killers” and “Roll Ya Arms”, featured on Dem Franchise Boyz 2008 LP, Our World, Our Way. But after years of producing for some of Down-South’s heavyweights including D4L, Fabo, Lil Yola, Meathead, Parlay, and the rest of Dem Franchise Boyz, Buck$ finally strikes out on his own. This super producer turned rapper and self-proclaimed “non-industry person, but an in-the-street-person” takes his previous successes in producing to the next level with his upcoming single, “Knock, Knock.” This is definitely one of the hottest joints coming out of the ATL right now!
Despite having achieved great credentials in the music industry, his climb to success always left him at a constant state of renewal. First losing his mother at the tender age of 2, followed by the passing of his father at age 7, and therefore being raised by his grandmother. However, by age 18 she passed away too, leaving him homeless, the lowest point of his life. With each loss, although devastated, Buck$ continued to persevere and concentrate more on his passion, music. With a “never let ‘em knock you down” optimistic thinking instilled at an early age, Buck$’ desire to succeed only grew stronger with every loss. It’s with this type hard work and determination and not to mention talent for hot beats and hooks, Buck$ intends on delivering new music to the world.
Since teaming up with Frank Liwall, Sandra and James Azor of TRN Entertainment, Buck$’ work on his solo project continues. With influences ranging from Nelly and Dr. Dre to Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige, his new album reflects his broad ideas and scope on life.
“You gotta make music for the people. It can change your mood, so I want to create music for everyone and every mood.”
