For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, yU wanted to share a song that relates his vision of belief. 

"Today's a special day in remembrance of a man that resembled the spirit of a leader at a time where many just followed suit & went with the tide. Another example of how powerful the spoken word can be, changing the lives of many by something as simple as a thought; amplified by the tone of his voice. When iIm onstage, sometimes I think of Martin & Malcolm. I think of how they fueled their supporters with inspiration to push forward. I wrote "I Believe" at a time when I myself was going thru a lot, and was trying to fine tune my focus. Somehow after talking to my creator, & Charlie Ross (who lived in Okinawa, Japan at the time), I was given the music & this is what came from it." - yU

Mista Flix hooked up with producer and De Facto Entertainment label boss Stealf back in July 2011 when they released the well received their five track EP 'Conceptualized Deceit'. Since then Mista Flix has been hard on his grind sketching and penning a whole barrage of new songs for future projects while Stealf has been reshaping the direction of his label De Facto as well as releasing and producing the superb EP 'Beats & Rhymes Vol.1' from US rapper Jackitdown Brown which featured Kool G Rap.

Fast forward to November 2011 and the news came to light that the London based emcee had in fact signed to De Facto Entertainment. Now Mista Flix has a string of future projects planned all of which perfectly compliments the De Facto sound and outlook for hip hop. A full length Stealf produced album entitled 'The Gospel For The Rap School' is already in the works and will be available digitally in May along with a limited edition run of 100 physical copies which will contain two CD's, the album and instrumental version, along with a DVD showing the recording process of the project.

To keep us going until the album drops, Mista Flix and Stealf have teamed up once again to unleash another free download EP that really hits the spot. Already getting superb reviews on-line as well as some support from various internet radio stations in the UK and overseas, Mista Flix is setting the pace and continuing to build a steadily growing loyal fan-base of true Hip-Hop heads. With the deep intelligent lyrical rhyme patterns along with a quality Boom Bap 'real Hip-Hop' sound from producers Stealf, Karnage and Kobi Wood, Mista Flix proves he and De Facto are taking the commercial to Mordor and are indeed Lords Of The Real. Make sure you grab this now!
