Capitan Murphy is FlyLo’s madcap rap alter-ego, the identify of which the producer originally kept a secret. In an XXL interview in 2012, FlyLo admitted he was behind the project, telling the magazine, “I never wanted it to be this whole thing about my identity. I never wanted it that to be the case. The only think that I wanted out of it, I just didn’t want people to like try and hype it up.”
‘You’re Dead!’, the LA producer’s last album released in 2014, featured two tracks with appearances from Captain Murphy — ‘Dead Man’s Tetris’ and ‘The Boys Who Died In Their Sleep’.
