Fly Gypsy Remixes Birdman’s “I Want It All” for new remix project

First of all, thank you for supporting Fly Gypsy in 2009! It is because of your support that, in six month, we’ve been able to go from a little-known new group to opening for Wale, topping college charts, and getting a video in rotation on VH1 Soul and mtvU. We are excited about what’s in store for 2010 and look forward to working with you as we continue to create good music for our fans.

Today, we are excited to give you a sneak preview of our upcoming remix project titled FG*XL:remixtape, which will be released on March 16, 2010 to coincide with our showcase at SXSW.

On the first leak from its upcoming remix project FG*XL:remixtape, Fly Gypsy serves up an infectious mix of clever, party-friendly lyrics and hard-hitting club beat from Birdman’s Pricele$$, fortified by additional production from Alexei. “I get stupid, I mean outrageous/ I can make the flu sick, remix contagious,” rhymes Kom effortlessly, showcasing his lyrical dexterity. Lest the remix project be thought of as just another mixtape, Alexei improves on the already-great track by building up the drums and spicing it up with occasional cuts to the Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock’s classic “It Takes Two.”
Background:

Washington, D.C.-based hip-hop duo Fly Gypsy are quickly becoming the hottest new name in hip-hop. Since its launch in July 2009, the duo have 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” reached No. 1 position on college radio hip-hop charts and their freestyle on DJBooth is currently No. 1 of 135 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. Okayplayer called the duo’s latest release “a timeless example of the beauty in music” and Rap Reviews called the duo “a group that could change what music is and what it should be.” Fly Gypsy is currently opening for Wale in several markets and preparing for a United Kingdom tour and a SXSW showcase in spring 2010. The group’s latest release, Change for a Dollar, is available now in all digital outlets and on Amazon, and the Vodka & Rum Mixtape is available now for free download on the group’s website, flygypsy.com. The group’s remix project FG*XL:remixtape will be released on March 16.
