The Song:

D.C.’s dynamic hip-hop duo Fly Gypsy invites singer/rapper Lauryn Hill to join them once again on the latest track off their Vodka Rum Mixtape. Producer Alexei Jendayi creates an upbeat backdrop with grooving bass punches and a clap snare that weaves in and out of a repeated sample, courtesy of funk/R&B singer Curtis Mayfield. The sunny production and forward-looking, flowing lyrics combine to effectively epitomize “feel-good music.” Emcee Kowboy Kom states, “I love doing songs that mean something and this song has a lot of heart in it. I think a lot of our fans from all walks of life will draw from it in different ways. This is also a personal song to me because music affects people and as a lyricist I try to affect people in a beneficial way.”

The Background:

The much talked-about hip-hop duo Fly Gypsy made its first splash in late 2008 with an election-themed single that introduced the duo’s energetic, guitar-driven sound to music fans around the world. The group formally launched in July 2009, with the release of the summertime single “You.” The video for the single was shot in Jamaica by Ras Kassa (acclaimed for his work with Sean Paul, Beenie Man, and Damian Marley). Founded by the Russian-born producer and songwriter, Alexei Jendayi, and the Jamaican-born emcee, Kowboy Kom, Fly Gypsy has become an instant favorite among fans, developing a growing following thanks to its infectious beats, catchy hooks, and polished image. Music critics, meanwhile, have praised the Washington, D.C.-based duo for their ability to attract commercial appeal without compromising their musicianship or message, comparing the duo to the Fugees, Jay-Z, and Kanye West. The group’s latest work, The Vodka and Rum Mixtape is available now, everywhere.
