“I just came in the game, and I’m doing damage.” The self-proclaimed “Princess of Rap,” Flo Milli puts on her best falsetto tone with a new sound, heavy on energetic beats and fun wordplay. She first caught the eyes of social media in 2018, releasing her first single, “Beef Flo Mix,” which is a remake of Playboi Carti’s and Ethereal’s 2015 song “Beef.” Last year, she followed with her debut project Ho, Why Is You Here? Fan favorites like, “In The Party”, “Send the Addy” and SWV sampled “Weak” had listeners walking around “Like That Bitch”. The Alabama native doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
Flo Milli jump started the new year by releasing her new single, “Roaring 20s,” just a few days after celebrating her 21st birthday. Produced by Kenny Beats, who takes Topol’s 1964 song, “If I Were A Rich Man” from the musical Fiddler on the Roof, creating a modern-day version to fit Flo Milli’s rich bitch energy.
You know it’s a hit once you hear “Flo Milli Shit.” She opens up the track literally “dropping her nuts on a hater” as she raps about stereotypical men doing whatever they want by sleeping with multiple women, showing off their bankroll while dressed in the same clothes four days ago, blowing money on watches, chains, and kush, then “hitting up the country clubs with my bros.” Flo Milli’s interlude between the first and second verse is the icing on the cake. As “If I Were A Rich Man” echoes in the background, we have to be thankful that Flo Milli isn’t a rich man because we wouldn’t have gotten this anthem for independent women to last us a lifetime. Her effortless flow gives you the confidence to tell a “broke boy, keep your distance,” knowing that he could never hit this.
Recently, Spotify announced Flo Milli as their newest U.S. RADAR artist. She will be featured on Spotify RADAR playlist and will create Spotify Singles recording and a mini documentary to release later this year. Flo Milli spoke about her new single “Roaring 20s” and her growth during 2020.
“The Roaring 20’s was a period in the history of dramatic social and political change,” Flo Milli said. “Last year, I was able to break through during a very difficult time for not only our country but the world. Born in 2000 and having my breakout year in 2020, I feel like I’m living in the new age of the Roaring 20s.”
She describes the Roaring 20s as the birth of new independent women, who were known as flappers. Flo Milli also states that her lyrics, style, and lifestyle all reflect freedom, and she is in the Roaring 20s. This has fans hungry for a full-length project from Flo Milli and Kenny Beats, but we can only imagine what the Alabama rapper has in store this year.
