We had the good fortune of connecting with Norris Duckett III and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Norris, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
Some key elements that have helped with my success are time management, logging inspirational ideas, and the need to achieve set goals for whatever it is I’m doing. Some tools that have helped in my success are learning about the business end and the in and outs of it. The artistic portion has already been in me and over time I learned how to improve with practice and proper critique.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The art I create is performative, photographic and film based. One of the things that sets my work apart is I’ve put the time in to be both inside and outside of Krump. People ask if I dance too once they hear me speak about the Krump movement. I figured early on that it be best practice to participate and gain experience not only as an observer of the culture. The challenges I’ve faced have taught I was really learning what works for me.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
A couple cool spots to check out would be Hats over in Glendora and another would be to check out the hard rock cafe in hollywood this way right after they could see the stars and be entertained on the blvd by visiting other places along the way like the wax museum.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to Shout Out My Family and Krump! The communities that have been built through this dance has had a positive affect on my life; in particular Thanks to the Lunatiks, Tha J-Squad, Krump society, and Momma Smoove!!!
