While providing the sound for the greater Los Angeles area—and by extension potential listeners across the globe—Felli Fel has seemingly seen and heard it all. His humble beginnings, which he describes as “screwing off as a kid deejaying” have led him to a role as a personality at one of the area’s leading radio stations in KPWR “Power” 106 along with a handful of releases featuring the likes of Kanye West, Diddy, Lil Jon Jermaine Dupri and Pitbull. Aside from providing both further insights on what keeps the people moving, his A-list rolodex doubles as a fun way to make music with friends he’s been running with for decades. If you need proof, look no further than his latest single, the Pitbull, Cee Lo and Juicy J-assisted, “Have Some Fun,” which premiered on Billboard.com in April. Felli Fels stable of high profile collabos has just been further boosted by Steve Aoki’s remix to the aforementioned “Have Some Fun.”

“I can’t even tell you how lucky I am to have such an amazing record but a summertime record,” Felli Fel gushed while speaking exclusively to HipHopDX on the set of the “Have Some Fun” video. “A lot of it is timing too. This record’s come out at a really good time, and like I said just the combination of the artist and the sound of the music makes it for the summertime type anthem.”

Environment doesn’t hurt either. With an abundance of liquor and scantily clad women around their Woodland Hills, California location, it wasn’t particularly difficult for Felli Fel, Cee Lo and Juicy J to obey the song’s command and “Have Some Fun.” Given his history with Three 6 Mafia and Puff Daddy, maybe it’s a case of art imitating life. But Felli Fel can tell you those stories much better than any song.

Why Felli Fel Says, “Longevity Is Everything.”
