New video “Alligator Skin” by north west London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan, the latest from his album “S.C.U.M.” released on October 27th through US label 22 Entertainment which includes guest featured artists Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin.

UK producer Agor has again laced this one with a stunning beat. A vocal and piano sampled slow burn feeds the switch up to a raucous guitar driven neck breaker, DFH typically taking the opportunity to let loose with both barrels in a lyrical onslaught.

Equally impressive are the new visuals shot by London director Ringz ov Saturn. Watch it now on Youtube

The album itself has just been reviewed by Phil Tang for London’s Guestlist Network Magazine.

North west London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan has today released his new album “S.C.U.M.” through Miami label 22 Entertainment.

Long considered as one of the most creative and gifted lyricists at the forefront of the UK’s burgeoning rap scene, he also spent time in NYC where early comparisons dubbed him “the new Slick Rick” while working with the late Sean Price, Sav Killz, Prince Po and Dead Prez.

Featuring Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin, “S.C.U.M.” is produced entirely by one of England’s hottest new emerging names Agor, his sophisticated and lavish soundscapes providing the perfect backdrop for charismatic portrayals of an irrepressible underclass. Stylish and compelling, a series of bold, satirical and uncomprimising rhymes intelligently depict contemporary aspirations, and reaffirms his international reputation as a serious force in rap’s new wave.

The album is available on CD and digital formats from multiple onlines stores worldwide including Amazon, iTunes and Spotify
