Dragon Fli Empire – The Daily News Pt. 2 ft. Sadat X [Audio]
Calgary, AB – Dragon Fli Empire (DFE) just released a teaser track, “The Daily News Pt. 2,” from their upcoming album Mission Statement. The track features a collaboration with veteran Bronx rapper Sadat X of the group Brand Nubian. And just as the track’s name suggests, it makes a satirical commentary on the state of media and pop culture in the “daily news.” The song laces AJV’s jazzy melodies over top of DJ Cosm’s catchy beats, and includes some slighting lyrics like “Lindsay Lohan can’t pay her rent,” and “Sandy’s victims need that FEMA.” In addition to being the first single off of DFE’s upcoming album, “The Daily News Pt. 2” is also the follow-up track to “The Daily News” from Sadat X’s 2005 album, Experience & Education. Give it a listen via SoundCloud below.
