DRIP DROPS of HIP-HOP from CHATTANOOGA
We sat down with Floami Fly this week to discuss "7 Deadly Sins" and her plans for 2018. Floami Fly is one of Chattanooga's most unique and talented artists. She is a true lyricist and can weave words around a beat like no other. Which is no surprise why she's a part of the "7 Deadly Sins" emcee crew.
The city is buzzing about the new video that features emcee's from Chattanooga (Floami Fly, D-M@K, & Milz), Nashville (HuppSound), Los Angeles (iamDES), and South Carolina (Basqui & Profound). She shared some upcoming plans around the project. "7 Deadly Sins" will be released as a full EP later this year with an accompanying marketing push which will include a release party and possibly a show with Velvet Poetry (We HOPE this happens).
"7 Deadly Sins" is just the start though. 2018 will be a busy year for Floami Fly. Fresh off last year's "Asylum" project, she will continue that theme through her Voodoo Nation brand. With the tagline, "Awaken the Wixked," the brand will explore the ideas of self-discovery, self-isolation, self-persecution, as well as battling addiction. The brand expansion will launch around April with a new visual (working with Megan Hollenbeck), merchandise (in conjunction with Cole Sweeton), a new website, and a 7-track EP entitled "The Interlude."
Floami said she's learned a lot since the "Asylum" project, "My primary focus now, after garnering support from the city, and then also learning about my key fanbase here locally - how to extrapolate on that on a national level - just being professional as possible, [putting out] high quality music, and incorporating the do's and don'ts of social media." Pairing these life lessons with her MBA, Floami Fly seems focused on her hip-hop career for 2018 and beyond.
