In this exclusive video interview, his first for two years, north west London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan reveals all about his artistic change of direction, his new album and his close relationship with the late Sean Price.

While discussing the themes and recording process of his recently released “S.C.U.M.” LP, he explains the transition from the artist formerly known as Iron Braydz to his current persona, a move in part inspired by actor Ray Winstone and the former Boot Camp Clik frontman who he describes as “one of the biggest influences on my life”.

Documenting the reason for his “Sean Price” tribute track, DFH proceeds to give an extensive in depth account of how their relationship grew through the years. He recounts their first meeting backstage in London and subsequent recording session evolving into a personal bond which would ultimately see the Brooklyn legend credit the young MC for his conversion to Islam.

In a series of very poignant recollections, their shared humour, respect and friendship is discernible culminating in rare video footage of the great man performing to his “little brother” on the Jazz Cafe stage. Following a further personal tribute to Bernadette Price, Harlesden’s finest outlines his release plans for 2018.

In this new exclusive interview, Stanley Florence from west coast online Raw Hip Hop Headz spoke with Long Beach crew Horseshoe Gang in the lead up to the release of their fourth studio album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th 2016

The group who are all blood brothers begin by talking about how their’s was a musical household as their mother and aunt were singers signed to a label in the 70’s. Subsequently, they explain how their initial steps towards becoming rappers were taken under the tutelage of their elder brother KXNG Crooked when from as early an age as 5 years old they were given rhymes to learn.

Influenced by artists including NWA, Tupac, Rakim and Jay-Z they speak about the advantage of having a special chemistry given their background and their aim to put more substance back into hip hop lyricism.

While acknowledging the role Kendrick Lamar and J Cole have played in re-establishing the craft, and indeed some who have helped bring the west back into focus, they explain more needs to be done, movements created, established and underground artists working together in unity to finally tip the scales.

The interview is then wrapped up as they discuss their tour with KXNG Crooked and Rittz last year, their well documented rap battle with Hopsin’s Funk Volume and of course, the album “Anti-Trap Music”.

The album is available to pre-order in two formats, CD’s direct from Seven 13 Music & Ent HERE and on iTunes HERE

ATM-MicrophoneMastersDubCNN

Microphone Masters Radio is broadcast in stream / podcast format every Wednesday through the DubCnn network.

Last week, the show’s host J-Luv sat down with Julius, Demetrius, Kenny & Dice from Horseshoe Gang to discuss their new album “Anti-Trap Music” which releases on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

During the interview, the group clarified their take on the trap music genre and the discussion progressed onto the issue of retaining lyrical integrity, and how remaining true to these ideals can be maintained using commercial productions.

They then moved on to the frustrations faced by many artists in the modern age, the prevelant expectation of multiple back to back releases. The oversaturation of the internet where quantity has replaced quality has become an issue in recent times, and has created an apparent obligation on artists to consistently produce new material and make available for free.

The interview wraps up with the group addressing the net grind / financial gain factor, the life sacrifices that have to be made to pursue a musical career and their call to radio stations to sit emerging and established artists side by side on the basis of quality and not budgets.

Interesting insight to which many will relate. The full feature was published on DubCnn where you can hear the full stream of the show which also includes tracks by E-40, Brotha Lynch Hung, J-Live, Grand Puba, Big Boi and more HERE
