‘Represent poverty’ – that’s the message D Flowers portrays through his music, and his new track and video “She Fleek” are no exception. The song and video come through Texas indie label Stomp Down, where D Flowers is one of the first recording artists on record. On the surface, the video showcases the nu-typical rapper-rich lifestyle, buzzing with cars, women, and luxurious real estate. However, D Flowers’ bellowing vocals tell a different story of prosperity after overcoming a life of severe poverty and legal troubles in Houston, where the rapper calls home.
“Remember when I was in jail / Stuck in that cell they ain’t wish me well / I had to change like a wishing well.”
D Flowers tells his story of poverty-to-prosperity using a quick, lyrical wit that few others possess. It’s as if he’s giving away bits and pieces of himself one at a time, allowing the audience a chance to see into his identity-rich personality. In this way, D Flowers puts himself atop Houston’s rap pedestal with friend and frequent collaborator Maxo Kream. The two are continuing the Texas city’s legacy of producing genre-changing artists, much like Bun B, Slim Thug, and DJ Screw before them. Watch the video for “She Fleek” below.
