Flight: Eighty-Nine (listen/download)

Previous Review: “Just Dance”

As previously mentioned, the talented Blizz McFly (SAFS Crew) dropped a fresh mixtape at the beginning of this month called, Flight: Eighty-Nine. Since the project’s first single “Just Dance” got such a positive response, decided to go ahead and dig into the rest of the tape as well. Here is the story that inspired the tape: Flight: Eighty-Nine stems from me wanting to buy a pair of Retro Jordan 4′s one day and they were sold out. So I caught the Flight 89’s instead because they have the same bottoms and look similar. However, upon purchasing these sneakers I ended up going through many obstacles while walking in my Flights, everyday I wanted to elevate out of these situations I was forced into so I started to gain more knowledge to counteract adversity; and that’s my meaning of being FLY. So in order to attain Flight you must be FLY: THE NEW COOL.” – Blizz McFly / Find out what hits the site uncovered after the jump.
