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.

SoulonFire-PopCulturez

UK based online magazine PopCulturez covers a wide range of interests including music genres rock, pop, country, r&b,hip hop and subjects such as sport, politics, tv, concerts….in other words news on the popular culture of the day.

They are the latest to cast an eye over the new album by rapper ethemadassassin, one half of the LA based duo Veteran Assassins most associated with North Carolina though has also worked out of New Jersey and Ohio at various times of his career.

“Soul on Fire” is his 3rd solo studio album, following on from the 2008 release “Tomorrow Never Comes” which included the video for Walk My Shoes as seen on UK stations MTV Base, Flava TV and others coast to coast across America. The current album is more auto biographical depicting his early days and the fashions, sounds and sights of the Nineties, while bringing things up to date of where he is today. Soul laced tracks like “80’s & 90’s” & “Can’t Get Enough” will be recognizable to older heads whereas fuel injected bangers like “Elements”, “Sparta”, “Tiger Blade” and even the latest bonus joint “H.T.G.” brings out the grittier side to this Emcee.

The PopCulturez review reflects on it, opening “he has something that many strictly battle-focused rappers lack; he can craft real songs too.” and in closing “Sure to please fans of 90s-style hardcore hip-hop from the likes of D.I.T.C., E offers his own take on the streets while demonstrating that, as an MC, he is not to be taken lightly.

With stellar production from Marco Polo, Bronze Nazareth, Stu Bangas, Curtiss King, Jaguar Skills & Kount Fif, Megahertz founder member Copywrite is on top form throughout.

This has seen MC’s the calibre of Akala & Sonny Seeza, S.A.S. & Sean Price, Genesis Elijah & Royce da 5 9, Iron Braydz & Crooked I, Bigz Flygerian & Inspectah Deck, Melanin 9 & Killah Priest and many more stand shoulder to shoulder on various tracks with further contributions from the likes of Evidence, Mystro, Roc Marciano and Torae.

The final official video taken from the album is the Jason Rose produced “Ghost in the Machine” which features London’s Context, currently riding high on the back of winning MTV’s “Brand New Unsigned” artist competition and playlisting on BBC Radio 1

Shot in Columbus Ohio and Hammersmith London, its a fitting finale to celebrate the launch of an exceptional album.

Its been an epic journey, but the day has finally arrived

After the initial concept of the album was born during the first couple of months of 2011, and after a very long & winding road in the months which followed, Copywrite’s new album “God Save The King (Proper English Version)” releases today on Man Bites Dog Records

A Stateside version called simply “God Save The King” was released with an entirely different tracklisting in the States in February 2012, however this version took the longest to complete given the massive array of international talent from the UK, United States and Canada who also feature.

Needless to say, the UK media have taken a huge interest in the release over the past few months, with nearly 30 separate magazines either reviewing or publishing interviews (with more to come), djs & online platforms from both sides of the Atlantic jumping all over the various single releases and videos, with further UK satellite tv station support.

Latest to give props to the album is The Hip Hop Village, the people behind which also run 16 Bars Magazine

Also look out for a new video “Ghost in the Machine” featuring London’s Context coming very soon

Copywrite himself is also busy putting together the new Megahertz album, and plans are underway for a European tour taking place early 2013

The album is available on iTunes internationally, and people can check in at www.copywritesworld.com or www.manbitesdogrecords.com for more information
