Ductape Productions

BandHip HopPop

The name and concept of Ductape Productions comes from piecing different styles of sound and holding it down with eye-opening lyrics and interesting drum patterns. The goal is to push the envelope of music in an artistic and fun perspective.

Biography

Ductape Productions started back in 2002 when Ivan moved from Denver to Bellingham and Esther was getting her degree at a local college. Both met at the Home Depot and shared a joy for different genres of music. At the time Ivan was involved in a rock band, but he found that the chemistry and ideas that flowed for Ductape Productions was magic. Esther was really happy to find a friend and fellow musician who was also open-minded and skilled in structuring different sounds together. The name Ductape Productions comes from piecing different styles of sound and holding it down with eye-opening lyrics and interesting drum patterns.

For Ivan, growing up he was inspired by Tretch from Naughty by Nature, Smashing Pumpkins, Duran Duran, Notorious B.I.G, and L.L. Cool J. Artists he truley admires now include The White Stripes and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Esther grew up humming to the tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonius Monk, and the captivating Billy Holiday. Later she got into Club DJs and admired unique artists such as Outkast and Devo.

Lyrics

Back in Time

Written By: Ivan Buchanan

This is how it started out
have to take you way back
back when Damon Waynes said Homie don't play that
I was just a young buck
My pops called me young punk
I had to stratch my head like why the hell did he say that?

What's with this Hip Hop? Turn up the radio
Played it so much my tape deck started playin' slow
The next week yo I got my first walkman
Turned it up load so I couldn't hear em talk man

I got LL battling Kool Mo D
Naughty by Nature yeah you know me
Figures with attitude, I got gratitude
For Easy E and the D.O.C.
KRS ONE put out edutainment
and Public Enemy was sorta on the same tip
Cypres Hill Yo I can just Kill a Man
They say Hamma was bamma but I'm still a fan
They just jealous of all the records he sells
MC Lyte was holding down the females
Then Tribe was coming at you abstract
Every single song was different from the last track

Busta Rymes Yo I thought he was too cool
He started out with The Leaders of the New School
and when we rolled out we always bumped Too $hort
sittin' in the back seat puffin on a Newport

(Chorus)
Why can't we go back in time
It was all about the rhyme
and our differences would shine (yeah yeah)
Now everybody sounds the same
We're chasing after fame
and it's getting kinda lame (yeah yeah)

I ain't a deala or killa or a substance abusiva
I don't beat down chicks and if you do you're a losa
I choose to do everything positive, that's how I gotta live

I remember when we all did the running man
and now the same cats are sittin' with a gun in hand
It's funny man I seen a grown man cryin'
Either get busy livin' or get busy dyin'

I ain't tryin' to preach I'm just reminiscin'
All my adolescence I ain't really got a message
but I question what's our direction?
Since we all sound the same I guess we learn the same lesson (Oh)

(Chorus)

I remember when I first started rhymin'
I was spittin' written hits and claim that I was free stylin'
Meanwhile my Brother started making beats to complete the style (Uh)
It was cool but things didn't work out
I loved my city but I was gettin' burnt out
No success but I knew I could rap
Moved up to Washington and I never looked back

I met this girl she was dope on the keys man
Anything you can play she can play with ease man
Ductape and you don't quit
One, two, and it sounds so sick (Uh)

(Chorus x2)

So Fly

Written By: Esther Rmah

(Intro)
You know you wanna get with this
Ductape Productions so ridiculus
You know you wanna gather round
as we piece it together and hold it down
Broken down but it's still in tack
Just just ride to the beat cuz it's where it's at
Gettin' fly or your gettin' by
The sight connection will getcha high
So so many different styles we bring
One Two Three: Sing......

I never knew that I would meet someone
that gets me so excited make my panties fall off
Boy you make me naughty cuz you're such a hottie
It's the things you whisper in my ear
and the way you stand beside me and pinch my rear
Your touch electrifies me
Babe, you Hypnotize me

(Chorus)
You're so Fly, you're dancin' in my mind
So High, I can touch the sky Baby
You put a spell on me you make me so crazy (x2)

I play it smart and I play it cool
I know she's real sharp and she aint no fool
(his charm has got me in a trance, gotta take that chance)
Sweet works to rope her in, give a half smile as I touch my chin
Dazed and confused by Ductape's sound
as we piece it together and hold it down

Never knew it would be this way
It's getting hot, now you wanna stay
ring the alarm as I work my charm
Tempature's risin', you're body's warm
Sweat, Wet, off goes the clothes
pants pulled down all around my toes
I see London I see France,
I wanna see you out your underpants

(Chorus)

Denial

I've been stayin' home waitin by the phone
Gotta ask myself when you're coming home
Got your favorite meal ready on the dinner table
But you're leavin' me all alone

It hurts to know you'd rather be somewhere else
You'd rather leave me all lonely and all by myself
Sometimes I wonder if I'm kidding me
It's getting bad, it's so sad but I am in...

(Chorus)

Denial, Denial about you and me
Denial, Denial cuz we're not meant to be
I'm in Denial, Denial, I thought that you loved me
So I fight it and deny it
Can't take this Destiny

Got me stuck in this grind
I do what I does
It ain't about me, It's all about us
Might take a little time
A whole lotta trust
See, babygirl you're fine
I ain't even gonna front

Face is a dime with a real nice tush
Shape just right with a whole lotta push
When we communite without words said
It sounds even better when we say it in bed
Your eyes turn red when you feel neglected
I come home late and you feel rejected
But you gotta understand that I need to make moves
so you can have what you want, and anything you choose
Put away that card, you ain't gotta foot the bill
I'm gonna get that car and the house on the hill
I know right now that it sounds like a dream
But hang in there and you're gonna get a ring

(Bridge)
I know that you're bad for me but I'm still gonna run right back to you
I know that you're back for me but I'm still gonna run right back (2x)

Chorus

Don't Stand A Chance

Written By: Ivan Buchanan

(Chorus)
You claim you runnin' with who
Forget what you thought you knew
You think you so damn cool
but you really just look like a fuckin' fool
Ductape playin' all in ya face
Now Bounce and don't leave a trace
Just Bouce and pick up the pace
Them haters they don't stand a chance

You claim you can see me how
Big time money flowing freely now
Stay on the cut as I'm on the scene
Love my soul glo like Ultra Sheen

Party people gather round
as we piece it together and hold it down
D-U-C-T-A-P-E productions baby you know the sound

Chicken heads report to the floor
Sloppy bitches exit the door
You know I'm a pimp like that
Turn the curious bitch into a fuckin' whore
And that's just how I role
She likes it nice and slow
Ahhh, push it, and next week she'll be back for more

True players stay on the grind
Not part time but around the clock
If I'm on the mic or at the table
Royal flush can you connect the dots?
That's that now pass them chips
That's that now pass that bitch
Bitch, yeah I'm talking to you
Some of these niggas are bitches too
I say *Bitch, yeah, I'm talking to you
Some of these niggas are bitches too (x2)

(Chorus)

Get with this I think not
Dude only talk about the things he's got
Fuck your chain, Fuck your ice
can it get any clearer, Fuck your life

Stop with this played out style
Can't help but diss on you
You think you're so damn hot
If you were on fire I woulda piss on you

I got you muggin' now
You're girlfriend loves the sound
Dipshit she blew me a kiss when you was at the bar you fuckin' clown
You claim to keep it real
This kid aint' got no hope
No goals and you're all smoked out
You're whole existence is a fuckin' joke

We're spinnin' round and round
Not just the underground
We get play every which way
Not just the hood but all over town
We're just two cyber freaks from S-E-A-T-T-LE
Admit you like the beat, it's D-U-C-T-A-P-E

Spelled it out so you know the name
Straight to the top so you know the aim
back to the front, front to the back
Tell these mothafuckers who control the game (Ductape)

(Chorus x2)

Is You Is (Ductape Productions Remix)

Written By: Ivan Buchanan

(Rap)

You got a problem, there's the door
All you do is trip, I don't care no more
Kept you on your feet, Got you off the streets
And the Thanks I get, you wanna settle the score?
You knew me before I was platinum plus
A bachella in an Acura
Act like a lady, Quit acting tough
Get in the kitchen with a spatula
All you wanna do is cuss and fuss
Quiet please, you gonna wake the neighbors
One time I called you Sunshine
Now you dark as death like the Oakland Raiders
Used to have money, now my palms are empty
You turned all your friends and my moms against me
All these kids, all in my biz
Why don't all these kids please do me a favor
Go to Hell and Just bump yourself
I don't need your help or your opinion
Did that work, throw you a curve
Well that's what I think of your opinion
Set it straight here's what I'm Lended
Apologies to all offended
Take a break go jump yourself
And you and that chick could have a happy ending
