Dragon Fli Empire

DJ Cosm and emcee Teekay form Dragon Fli Empire, a leading force in Calgary’s hip hop scene since 2002. They have shared the stage with names like De La Soul, The Roots, Public Enemy and Mos Def and performed at festivals like the Calgary Folk Fest, Sled Island, Warped Tour, Shambhala and Rock the Bells. They were nominated for Best Hip Hop Album at the 2009 Western Canadian Music Awards and have toured through Canada, the United States, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway and Switzerland. The DFE have released music independently as well as through labels in Canada, Japan and Finland. The crew is always staying busy, with numerous group & solo projects, so be sure to look for more new music in late 2017 and beyond.
