So, after a few weeks of wondering who animated hip-hop newcomer Captain Murphy is, two nights ago all was revealed at Los Angeles’ Low End Theory night at the Airliner.
Captain Murphy isn’t Tyler The Creator, Madvillain or Earl Sweatshirt – it’s none other than Flying Lotus. And post-gig-unveiling, Fly-Lo seemed quite amused with himself – check out the tweet below:
His Elijah Wood-featuring music video for Tiny Tortures (under his own moniker) dropped a few days ago (along with Captain Murphy‘s video mixtape, Duality) and now the mystery is over.
I’ll be honest I thought he was behind the production, but I didn’t know he was the rapper. I thought it was Tyler the Creator all the way.
Anyway, on top of this revelation Flying Lotus has released the Duality mixtape as a download which you can get for free here.
It’s awesome – that Fly-Lo’s an impressive f*cker.
