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.

Last Friday, M.I. and DJ Cutt from Constant Deviants dropped into Brooklyn’s Bodega Cold Kutz studio, the show streaming live every Friday from 5pm – 8pm EST.

DJ Joe Bodega spins the real deal when it comes to hip hop, assisted this week by DJ Toshi, and the show breaks for interview segments.

In this 30 minute interview with Constant Deviants (it begins 45 minutes into the show), hosts Jay Drilla and J2ThaMar cover a lot of interesting territory with the duo. First off they discuss the group’s earliest days, how they came together to form the group and how between 2000 – 2006 the group was on an effective hiatus.

MI2

This was due to M.I. signing a solo deal with Arista at the time, arranged by J Cole’s current manager Mark Pitts, while DJ Cutt engineered several albums for Roc-A-Fella. In this particular interview M.I. and Cutt go into far more detail than perhaps has been previously the case about the realities of life at these labels and the consequences it had for them.

In a similar vein, more specific information is provided regarding the circumstances around a 2006 remix of the Rick Ross track “Yup” which featured N.O.R.E. and M.I., but which was sent around djs incorrectly naming M1 from Dead Prez as the featured artist…just so this is cleared up once and for all !

CD1

Baltimore’s M.I. is then asked for his perspective on the riots in the city which took place in 2015 and he gives an interesting and informative perspective on the realities of what led up to these events and the extent to which it actually affected the city as a whole.

They also discuss a range of other subjects including the new album “Omerta”, the move into film making, the use of sampling and differentials in hip hop production, underground and mainstream hip hop and much more. Definitely worth a watch, check it out on Vimeo

Omerta” is being distributed by Fatbeats worldwide on CD and vinyl formats from July 15th, and the digital version can be bought now direct from Six2Six Records’ BANDCAMP
