Alabama’s very own princess of rap Flo Milli surprised fans to an early release of her debut album You Still Here, Ho ?, available everywhere now via RCA Records. Speaking about the album, Flo Milli shares: “My album creative is based on early 2000’s nostalgia. As queen of Gen-Z, this is the new age of the Roaring 20s. As a woman and creative, I feel so empowered, full of energy and full of life. I’ve decided to use social media, technology and my resources to uplift and inspire those who look up to me to use what they have, start where they are, and more importantly start today.” To coincide with the album, Flo Milli has also released the music video for her latest single ‘No Face’.
Latto is channeling her “Big Energy” and taking aim at gender roles and sexism with her powerful new single, ‘Pussy.’ The defiant track, accompanied by a subversive image of a woman with her legs spread in front of a building resembling the White House, directly calls out the various types of men — politicians, abusive boyfriends, raging misogynists, incels — who attempt to control female sexuality and womanhood. It’s an aptly timed release for the rising rapper, as women across America are losing the ability to make choices about their own reproductive health following the repeal of Roe v. Wade. “Who is you to bash pussy?” Latto demands in the song’s opening verse, backed by a pitch-shifted sample of Betty Wright’s 1968 single ‘Girls Can’t Do What The Guys Do.’ “Buy the man my respect, watch he paint me as crazy/Y’all sexualize lesbians but y’all entertain me/They engaging, ain’t got supply from they mama basement/If you don’t get a pussy up, then he’ll take it.” [via Rolling Stone]

One of the tracks on that compilation is Glorilla’s new song ‘Tomorrow.’ Over the weekend, Glorilla dropped the ‘Tomorrow’ video, which shows her and her friends partying inside and outside a private jet, doing the kinds of things that you or I might do if private jets suddenly became a part of our lives.
