Spotify releases an intimate documentary piece on their latest RADAR artist, Alabama-bred rapper Flo Milli.
In the 5-min clip, the self-proclaimed Princess of Hip Hop talks about her ambitions, her bold confidence, the first show she booked when she was sixteen (before her family even knew she was rapping), growing up in Mobile, AL, writing music at her movie theater job in high school, up through her massive breakout in 2019. The video takes viewers to both Atlanta and Alabama as Flo gets her hair braided, reminisces with her family, reflects on her upbringing, and talks about the future.
Her mom makes an appearance, talking about Flo’s “spontaneous” and “bubbly” personality growing up, with old home-video footage interspersed throughout. Her grandma jumps in to praise Flo’s natural abilities at school, which she graduated from with honors and an advanced degree — making her a stellar role model — noting Flo comes from a legacy of “women that are determined to be our own people and excel at whatever we do.”
Back in January, Spotify’s global emerging artist program, RADAR, announced Flo Milli as the latest artist to receive the honor. To coincide with the release she dropped her first track and visual of 2021 with “Roaring 20s” which was met with critical praise upon release and sees Flo bringing the 1920’s flapper era back to life with a dance-filled visual.
To date the track has over 250 Million streams on the Spotify platform and placements on over 100 Spotify playlists like RapCaviar, Feelin’ Myself, and New Music Friday.
