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.
