With this week's release of Playaz Circle's Flight 360: The Takeoff, Tity Boi and Dolla Boy linked with SOHH to speak on their sophomore album's overall appeal and why it's time to get "fly."
Tity said this album represents their post-Lil Wayne "Duffle Bag Boy" success.
"Basically, this album right here is post 'Duffle Bag Boy' success, like I talk about, it's like the celebration of what happened after 'Duffle Bag Boy,' it was a lot of traveling, a lot of shows, a lot of stacking paper," Tity Boi explained. "We invested into a studio and we did this whole Flight 360 in like our own backyard...It's a conceptual album, 360 is an analogy for circle and we go by Playaz Circle...it's just a title in itself that has dual meanings. The sampler that we put out was in passport form, we just tried to tie this whole album together from the photo shoot to the name to the titles of the songs to the arrangement of the songs to the skits. It's an album that carries a lot of weight...it's like the soundtrack to getting fly...The features are where they need to be, nobody's on there that's not supposed to be on there..." (SOHH)
The project will guest feature a few mainstream emcees.

They also plan to release a string of music videos to go with the album.
"We've been shooting a lot of videos, trying to get the imagery out," Tity Boi said in a recent interview. "We are trying to paint a lot of pictures with the album with the lyrics and everything. We just teamed up with DTP and they was feeling the album so much that they wanted to get behind it 110 percent. We putting all the visuals out there and concepts of what we came out with."

Flight 360: The Takeoff will be the follow-up to their 2007 debut, Supply and Demand.
Patiently waiting for their already finished album to be released, Playaz Circle made noise with their Top Five Hip-Hop/R&B single "Duffle Bag Boy," featuring Lil Wayne on the hook, in summer 2007. The song's growing popularity helped break down major-label red tape for the two, making it the lead single for DTP's third LP, Strength in Numbers (2008), as well as their debut album, Supply and Demand (2007).

The new album arrives in stores Tuesday, September 29th via Def Jam/DTP Records.
