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 and, since the launch, has released a successful and critically acclaimed mixtape, shot a video in Jamaica with famed director Ras Kassa (acclaimed for his work with Sean Paul, Beenie Man, and Damian Marley), and was featured on over 200 websites and blogs, including the influential HipHopDX, Okayplayer, 2dopeboyz, and DJBooth. Their single “2 Step” has been steadily climbing college radio charts and their freestyle on DJBooth is currently number 1 of 112 others. Music critics 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 release, Change for a Dollar, is available now in all digital outlets and on Amazon, and the Vodka and Rum Mixtape is available now for free download on the group’s website, flygypsy.com.
