Deuce Ellis – Throwing Knives [Video]
Deuce Ellis, one of indie hip hop’s hottest young artists, has been criss-crossing the nation on tour for the greater part of the last 2 years. Despite the rigorous performance schedule, Deuce continues to find time to write and record for an upcoming project; of which he is remaining mostly silent on any details. The first leak – and corresponding video from this ninja-like stealth project is appropriately entitled “Throwing Knives”. The song features a classic hip hop vibe, sultry blues guitar riffs, and a pounding drum beat, courtesy of Minneapolis producer, Karl Folk, whom Deuce met on tour earlier this year.

“Throwing Knives was actually crafted while I was on the road, it saw about 12 different states. I really just wanted to do a track displaying my skills as an MC & song structuring.”, says Ellis, who heads back out on the Def On Arrival Tour in September, playing tour dates in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.
