Dragon Fli Empire take control on "Fli Beat Patrol" –

Canadian rap duo Dragon Fli Empire pays homage to the legendary Flava Unit and Juice Crew in their video for “Fli Beat Patrol,” a funk-laced, Djar One-produced banger lifted from their new Record Store single. Lead emcee Teekay takes on the role the historian on this funky joint as he runs through the names the various architects hip-hop while his musical partner turntablist/producer DJ Cosm, solidifies the notion with some excellent scratches on the chorus. Their sentiment goes beyond the aforementioned legendary rap crews as well, because the track actually takes the listener through the culture’s roots in funk and soul.

The DJ Cosm directed video shows love to those same roots and splices numerous images their predecessors using retro visual effects reminiscent the 90s rap videos. The visual is an entirely  DIY effort with DJ Cosm behind the camera while Teekay handled editing duties.
