Burgeoning Alabama rapper, Flo Milli has unveiled the official video for her latest single “Roaring 20s” directed by CHILD. Watch HERE.
The single is produced by Kenny Beats and includes a sample of “If I Were A Rich Man” from the Original Broadway Cast Recording of “Fiddler on the Roof”. The track inspires the next wave of Flo Milli as she paves her own way, redefining this centuries’ 20’s and continues with messages of female empowerment as heard in the song’s lyrics and seen in the video.
On the release and this next phase, Flo Milli shares: ‘The Roaring 20s was a period in history of dramatic social and political change. 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’.
One of the most familiar symbols of the ‘Roaring 20s’ was the birth of the new independent woman, known in those years as a flapper. A flapper is a young woman; unbothered by conventional standards of behavior. In addition to being more sexually free than previous generations, the women of the Roaring 20s had the bobbed hair, the short skirts, the drankin’, the smokin’, looks and participated in activities that were deemed ‘unladylike’. My lyrics, my style and my lifestyle all resonate with that freedom and I AM the Roaring 20s.”
“Roaring 20s” is the first piece of new music following a remarkable and breakthrough 2020 for Flo Milli with her debut mixtape, Ho, why is you here? which was featured prominently in many Best of lists including The New York Times, Notion, The Guardian, Crack, Vice, High Snobiety, Complex, Pitchfork, FADER, Los Angeles Times, Wonderland, Complex and many more.
