Brooklyn rap stalwart and M.O.P. affiliate Teflon shares the new video for his neck-snapping banger, “No Fake Love,” featuring DJ Eclipse on the cuts and Jazimoto on production. Right out of the gate, the video hits just as hard as the track itself thanks to that driving, drums-heavy instrumental from Jazimoto along with the mix courtesy of the legendary DJ Premier. And it sets the stage perfectly for Teflon’s attention-commanding voice, which he uses to proudly proclaim his success and shoot down any and all naysayers. Director Watsyn Filmz captures it all with high-energy visuals that center on the veteran emcee in his element with his Firing Squad crew—LIl Fame and Preemo—with his trusted canine right by his side.
The whole affair feels like a battle cry of sorts for Tef, who made waves on numerous tracks over the years, including M.O.P.’s high octane remix for “Ante Up” (featuring Busta Rhymes and Remy Ma) and “4 Alarm Blaze” (featuring Jay-Z). And it’s worth noting that Teflon and producer Jazimoto actually have more work in the can together, so here’s hoping we get to hear more of that soon.
Linwood Starling, better known by his stage name Teflon, is an American rapper from Brooklyn, New York. He began his career as an affiliate of M.O.P. in the mid-1990s. Starling released his debut album, My Will, on Relativity in 1997. He signed to Def Jam Recordings in 2001 with the assistance of DJ Premier but the situation soured when Def Jam president Kevin Liles, who handled Starling's project, left the label in 2004. Starling announced that he was working on a collaborative album with DJ Premier titled Contraband in 2005 that was to be released independently. He released the single "Showtime" on DJ Premier's label Works of Mart Entertainment in 2006 but the album was never released.
