DJ Spanish Fly, the mega post.

by Juice Mannen Hugo on October 29, 2009

I’m certain there is nothing that flows better in the background than a DJ Spanish Fly tape. Simple as fuck, the beat, the snare and the drum pattern creates the melody. There’s plenty Triggerman samples, some N.W.A. samples here and there, slow tales about money, hoes, slanging thangs and spitting raps over dope beats.

It somewhat troubles me I can’t really describe more precisely what an impact DJ Spanish Fly had to the scene of 80′s and 90′s Memphis and Tennessee DJ’ing and rap music. I simply wasn’t around to experince the scene myself. But I do know he has been described as a pioneer and major influence to well known Memphis artists as DJ Paul, Al Kapone, 8Ball & MJG and Jazze Pha. As he desribes in a short interview at Fader from some time back, some of the biggest acts in the Memhpis scene today would learn about music from him while visiting the night club Club No Name, where he performed and DJ’d frequently during the latter part of the 80′s and early 90′s. For more information on the man and his place in rap music I suggest you visit his myspace, where there’s a rather thorough biography.

The albums following are the what I’ve been able to gather from ze internet during the last couple of years since first discovering DJ Spanish Fly and finding I’m Da Nigga somewhere, probaly on Cocaineblunts old-old forums. Finding information about these releases haven’t been easy, actually I haven’t found any information besides somewhat accurate tracklists and years of release. I’m pretty sure this records never where sold properly thru a record company, but rather are cassete tapes sold directly from the man himself during the 80′s and 90′s. There is no information on his myspace about how to purchase any of his music. That’s why I feel that it is okay for me to share so much of his music like this.

I suppose alot of you are new to DJ Spanish Fly’s music and probaly will not download all these records. But if you do enjoy these youtube videos above and wan’t to give one or two of his records a chance, I would suggest you check out either I’m Da Nigga (previously posted) or Going To Mr Z’s, does two are definatley my favorite records from him. If you’re in a little bit more substance, there’s plenty of political/Chuck D-ish songs on Black Radio. Hope any of you will enjoy his music as much as I have, and for those of you who are already fans, I hope you will find something here you hadn’t heard before.

As for artwork, at best it’s a picture of the original cassette tape, and some of the other pictures are just random photos of Mr. Fly.
