21 October 2014: Fly Mar aka Slim Stickem's - Return Of The Fly

The oldest Bay Area rap fans should remember one of Hunter's Point, San Francisco rap pioneers by the name of Fly Mar.

It appears that there will be a new solo from this SFC vet titled "Return Of The Fly" which is dropping on November 1st. The cd will be delivered by Ovaseaz Records - a small, independent record label that is the brainchild of Australian hip-hop aficionados Big Ben and Big Willie Will. As it's said on their official website they "revive the 90s West Coast Rap movement with a contemporary flair, recognizing that what is presently known as hip hop has changed from what OG's in the industry are accustomed to". The "Return Of The Fly" project will be made of 15 tracks produced by TC, Calisounds, L7 and Ron, featuring Rappin' 4-Tay, Mistah F.A.B., Taydatay, Hennessy, Maine-O, Big Quint, Regal, Squirrel, Menace Man, RJ Boon Goon and more.
