New video “Velvet Cake” by northwest London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan, taken from his “F.Y.L.P.M.” EP released earlier this year.

Produced by NCL TM, the beat blasts out a cacophony of brass and soul samples over which DFH gets creative delivering trademark dexterous wordplay and high calibre rhyme schemes. On the track title he simply states “When you’ve had the best red velvet cake from Lords Bakery in Flatbush, Brooklyn, you’ll understand why I named this jawn – definitions of deliciousness“.

Directed by The Ol’ Cyruss in London, the theme of the video is an ode to Ghostface Killah’s “Supreme Clientele” album cover, employing imagery as a pastiche of retro cinema and film noir. Watch it now on Youtube

Da Flyy Hooligan’s new album “S.C.U.M.” featuring Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin releases worldwide on CD and digital formats through Miami label 22 Entertainment on October 27th.

London’s Secret TV are an online magazine mixing filmed interviews, reviews, performances and views covering a broad spectrum of subjects from Film, Art, Music and more with a healthy focus on new talent

They are the latest to review Melanin 9’s new album Magna Carta which is on general release from the 3rd December, although pre – orders of CD versions can be placed via http://m9ether.bandcamp.com and will be delivered by 25th November

The review is another in appreciation of his lyrical content, wordplay and diversity of production.

Pointing to Nas’ “Illmatic” as a reference point for the overall concept, the review concludes:

Melanin 9’s honesty and lyrical prowess shines through, proving that with a fresh beat, deep lyrics and talented delivery, you can be as ‘conscious’ as you want. The message doesn’t detract from the music, and the music doesn’t detract from the message.

It’s ideology and medium in perfect harmony.
