$NOT — “Mean” ft. Flo Milli
Flo demands her attention as soon as she hops on the beat at 1:18… by 18 seconds, we're left wanting more from the mere two-minute single titled “Mean” from Brooklyn-born, Florida-raised rapper $NOT.
The song that earned the Alabama native notoriety was released in early 2019, and let’s just say, three months later, the rest was history.
"In the Party "
Released October 28, 2019, “In the Party” became another TikTok banger for the female rapper. Its accompanying music video allowed fellow TikTokers to showcase their dance moves.
Flo taps producer Kenny Beats for this track which samples Zero Mostel’s performance of “If I Were a Rich Man” from Fiddler on the Roof as she raps about wealth or power.
