Album: Small Victories
Released: July 3, 2014

Fly Union drops their newest project “Small Victories” as a follow up to their Loose Releases EP. The thirteen track project will also include features from B.J. The Chicago Kid and Casey Veggies. Following their BET Music Matters tour with TDE’s Kendrick Lamar to end the year, in 2013, Fly Union found themselves in studio finishing “Small Victories”. It was created while traveling between Atlanta, Columbus and L.A. Not only making music, but also making strides with their licensing and marketing deals through Samsung, ESPN and NBA 2K14. “Small Victories” is produced entirely by Iyeball and JaySwifa of Fly Union whose sound is timeless. Fly Union has been a Columbus hip-hop mainstay longer than one might think. No group has represented the city’s shift from underground/record-store culture to fashion culture better and they did it first. The best way to describe Fly Union from there mixtapes & albums is like a vintage bottle of premiere wine, “It just keeps getting better with time.” Each project is a constant progression from the last one with continual growth amazing production and witty wordplay.

“Every beat on this project sounds like it’s from a different producer, and it wasn’t really on purpose,” Jay Swifa said.

“I think our journey is really in the album,” Jerreau said. “It’s different from the first project, and hopefully people will take it as an independent body of work because it’s not The Greater Than Club.”

“It’s all small victories, pun intended,” Jerreau said. “There are certain things you’ve got to step back from and say, ‘Wow, I did that,’ and acknowledge that it’s an achievement.”
