VIDEO ▲: UFO Fev - "Chi's Day" Feat. Red Inf + Behind The Scenes Q&A
Video courtesy of PorterVision Media*
UFO Fev releases what may be the last visual for his most recent project, Take Me To Your Leader. Shot in brooklyn, and featuring his Mile High brethren Red Inf, the two go in over a 2Pac classic. As usual we talk to the East Harlem spokesman about the video, Q&A style below.
Troy Paraiso: "Got My Mind Made Up" is a song by 2Pac, and considered to be one of the best collaborative songs ever in Hip-Hop. What inspired you & Red Inf to record to it?
UFO Fev: I always enjoyed "Got My Mind Made Up." I thought everyone got off on the original track, and Inspectah Deck at the end doing the quick whatever it was, he did was always sick to me. With that, I decided to throw the beat on in the studio and lay some bars to it.
Troy Paraiso: The scenes shot in the video are dope, and appears to be a loft type studio. Where was the shoot location/s?
UFO Fev: The location was shot at my engineers studio in Brooklyn, and it's pretty popular, so if you know, you know, if not, then we're on the low. Lol.
Troy Paraiso: Titled "Chi's Day" for your cousin, explain why you decided to name it after him?
UFO Fev: Chi is my blood cousin, he's always been through whatever I've been through, since a cub we've seen the same stuff together. That night was his birthday, and we were hanging at the studio.
Troy Paraiso: You rapped "Pen game's a reverse windmill!" ...haha, what the f**k does that mean?
UFO Fev: Reverse Windmill, I remember when I first seen Vince Carter do it back in 2000, it was AMAZING, like some shit you've never thought of. So that's the punchline, "My pen game's a reverse windmill." Lol.
Troy Paraiso: You and the boy Red Inf both have new projects releasing soon. Can you speak on what those are?
UFO Fev: I'm gearing up for this new EP with all original music, entitled Return Flight due out November. Red is in the process of recording and writing his first project, so we'll be taking that out the oven soon as the time goes off. And for those interested, Propaganda is coming...
