We catch up with 20-year-old Alabama rapper Flo Milli after the release of her latest anthem 'Like That Bitch'.
Flo Milli first broke onto the scene in 2019 with her track “Beef FloMix” which landed on the Spotify US Viral 50, peaking at #2. After an incredible introduction, it looks like Flo Milli is here to stay for good with her infectious flow and self-love anthems.
With being a TikTok sensation already under her belt, Flo is planning her next move as she climbs to greater heights with the release of her debut EP, Ho, Why Is You Here? due next month in July.
On the release of the EP, Flo explains: “This project is introducing a revamped newer me. A newer version of myself that I’m still discovering. This phase of me comes with an ego and an attitude. This is setting the tone for what I have to come in the future, I want everyone to feel the energy I’m coming with.”
Constantly working on her craft – Flo Milli is a complete package as her flows, bars and musical capabilities just keep getting stronger for this 20-year-old. With each track having a powerful self-love message woven into the DNA of the tracks, you can’t help but feel yourself to Flo.
