Some artists are just so determined to make it on their own terms and in their own time, and that can be said for the focussed London artist Filfy. Since arriving on the Hip-Hop scene last year, he has dropped numerous videos, done numerous collaborations, stage shows, radio shows and even launched his own clothing company which isn’t just tee’s, it’s the whole lot, college jackets, hoodies, the whole nine, and now finally his album is out for us to purchase!
Narratives about the pitfalls of life, race relations, politics, history, and religion, are all subjects that some acts avoid but not here, Filfy allows the normal pop route of trying gain a wider audience and opts for the option of spreading a real message while at the same time displaying a more lyrically mature rapper than most UK cats on You Tube.
He might not be the most polished or politically correct emcee, but to any politically conscious Hip-Hop fan this is like a gateway to greater knowledge. Powered by two singles/videos this is just the beginning for this talented act. Filfy has arrived, and with his next project currently being made it’s only a matter of time before he will be at the forefront of the UK rap scene. Filfy has skills and has this whole rapping thing on lock! This is a big album from an MC to watch.

“Breakfast” was the most popular track released in the month of June on DJbooth.net beating Lil Wayne, TI, Common, Busta Rhymes and more…
Well let’s be honest, we are pretty sure this is the first ever Hip-Hop video where a girl gets ‘milked’!!! When Rich Quick, Archie Bang, J57 and DJ J Hart linked up to do this track they really wanted to capture the fun and the care free vibe of the song. Rich brought his crew from New Jersey and Philly up to Archie Bang’s Flatbush neighbourhood in Brooklyn for what has to be one of the most off the wall video shoots Flatbush has ever seen! Archie is stealing cheese burgers, girls are getting “milked” and Tray Digga, a member of Rich’s CORFU Hip Hop collective, is enjoying a delicious #Breakfast. This is something fresh and is already getting championed from heads in the US and all over Europe…

About Rich Quick:
In April 2012 Rich Quick released “I’m With The DJ” Hosted by DJ NoPhrillz and Benja Styles. The first 500 physical copies of the mixtape included 1 of 5 limited edition hand drawn Hip Hop themed Art Cards. Rich included the Art Cards as a testament to Hip Hop’s influence on art and pop culture. During Rich’s tour promoting “I’m With The DJ” Rich performed with notable New Jersey producer Mr. Green. After the show he was approached by Jeff Davis aka Stress the White Boy. Stress and Chuck Treece, a powerhouse production duo referred to as STREECE™, began working with Rich on an EP titled “Sad Songz” from Ben Frank Recordings.
The work on “Sad Songz” captured the attention of multi-Grammy award winning artist, Tim “Timebomb” Armstrong of Rancid and Transplants fame. Armstrong, a longtime friend of Stress, collaborated on a track with STREECE™ and Rich Quick. The track entitled “Stay True” became part of the Tim Timebomb and Friends project and quickly became a fan favorite. Other notable collaborations are Jakk Frost, Reef the Lost Cauze, and Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples)
Rich was then featured in Philadelphia Weekly calling him “Philly hip-hop’s rising star”. After features on HipHopDx.com,RespectMag.com, AllHipHop.com, DJbooth.net and numerous international websites, “Sad Songz” debuted top 40 on the iTunes Hip Hop Album charts the day of it’s release.
