spacer MP3: Fly Gypsy - "Wildflower" Feat. Jose Feliciano 09.14.2009
spacer D.C.-Based MC/Producer Duo Drops New Song Off Recently Released Vodka & Rum Mixtape spacer

The Song:

Fly Gypsy is set to release another track off their newest effort, The Vodka & Rum Mixtape. The song, "Wildflower," featuring samplings of guitar legend Jose Feliciano, fits seamlessly into the formula the Russian and Jamaican producer/MC duo explore throughout the mixtape. Musically, Alexei Jendayi provides a smooth guitar backdrop for Kowboy Kom's precise lyrical delivery, intertwining Jose Feliciano's take on the classic Door's standard, "Light My Fire," into the track in a manner which provides the listener with the feeling, not of samples, but of Alexei, Kom, and Jose in the same room trading verses, vibing, and playing guitars together. Speaking about the inspiration behind the musical elements of the song, Alexei says "I've always loved Jose Feliciano's 'Light My Fire' and wanted to use it in a Fly Gypsy track. The song is so beautiful. I wanted to do more than just sample it. So when I sat down to produce the song, I effectively treated it as a Fly Gypsy and Jose Feliciano duet. And I think it worked."

The chemistry throughout sets the mood for an awe-inspiring track full of deft musicianship and lyrics that spell out the stories of three different women, one young girl and two older women, that have become cold and callused to the world in response to life's hardships. Explaining the main characters of the story, Kom raps, "Wildflower born in a storm / Always ice grilling but her heart's so warm / But you would never know it, 'cause she's scared to show it / And that's about the only thing she's scared of." More than just a story, Kom's personal interactions serve as inspiration to the song's lyrics: "My message in this song is that I understand and respect these women’s incredible struggle. I wanted to let misunderstood wildflowers all over the world know that they are beautiful and are stronger than most women - they've had to be to survive what they went through." Kom continues, "But when you find someone that is trying to love you, as a friend or in a relationship, remember they have struggles of their own. It takes work to overcome the challenges and make relationships work."

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.
