FLO’s Journey as a Versatile Artist in the Music Industry

At times, people tend to let their problems weigh them down to the extent that their dreams seem unreachable. But, the desire, dedication, and resilience to make it in life against all odds will undoubtedly help you achieve your dreams. FLO, a Chicago native, is an ordinary person who wasn’t fortunate enough to come from a well-off family. However, his small beginnings didn’t deter him from working hard to see his dreams come true. A fast-rising songwriter, FLO inspires people through his music, letting them know that they don’t have to come from money to succeed in life. You only need to be yourself and be consistent with your efforts, and you will thrive.

A multi-talented artist, FLO stands out because of his ability to create inspirational and energetic sounds. With a profound passion for the industry, FLO has jumped headfirst into the game and pushed himself to new limits. He has produced hit after hit and recently released an album called Versatile, which showcases his versatility as an artist. FLO is an all-around musician who creates tracks that incorporate various genres of music, from rap, country, blues, hip-hop, and even some pop-style vibes.

Being an expert in this industry has seen him rub shoulders with some great artists. His major highlight was working with Twista, his idol while growing up. Also, FLO has worked with and collaborated on songs with Crucial Conflict, Lil Flip, Lil Wyte, Do or Die, Kobe Honeycutt, and many more.

Your circumstances and the people around you can sometimes be obstacles in your path to success. Having a supportive family and friends goes a long way to helping you achieve your dreams, but in some instances, when you are supposed to offer them support, you can often lose track of your life. This was the case for FLO, who had to battle with several family members’ and friends’ addiction challenges. It was hard for FLO to stay focused and work on himself when he had a lot of distractions weighing on him.

Additionally, his journey in the music industry was initially bumpy as he wanted to make a name for himself so badly. In the quest to achieve his dreams, he tried to give it his all to the extent of becoming burnt out. FLO had to overcome this challenge because he became too hard on himself, and his life and music were suffering. He, however, managed to overcome it, and over the years, FLO has been having fun and enjoying the process of making music.

FLO aspires to become a renowned artist who makes a difference in people’s lives. His vision is to be an artist who can attack any beat or track uniquely. He is working on compiling complex rhymes with simple hook concepts yet having the ability to rap fast. Furthermore, FLO wants to inspire others who think they are having a hard time and wants them to know that they are not alone in this world. Through his music, he cherishes every moment of life so that people can find a reason to hold on when they go through the same. “Hopefully, it will inspire them to keep fighting for something bigger or to just be able to let loose and have fun,” says FLO.


Nailah Blackman Is Ready To Drop “Teknique” This Friday! | @nailahblackman

The album “Teknique” is a mashup and is one of a kind. There are elements of Soca, Dancehall, Afrobeats, Amapiano, Hip Hop, Baile Funk, and Pop in the album’s music. Nailah’s professional travels, the people she encounters, and the many cultures she experiences all serve as sources of inspiration for her music.

Nailah collaborated with a bevy of talented musicians on the 18 songs that make up her latest album, Teknique. Her life and relationships are portrayed in a series of frequently conflicting tales that she sings about across her whole catalogue.

Nailah demonstrates in “Teknique” that it requires finesse to find common ground between one’s passions and the mainstream. Completing the task when the stakes are high requires skill. She demonstrates that it is a gift to transform sorrow into competence and to break free of societal constraints. As the saying goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and “genius” may be found wherever reason is abandoned.

Nailah set out to create a solid record in which she could experiment with her musical abilities.

She hoped that by releasing an album, people would finally get a full glimpse of her abilities. As a result, she is overjoyed to introduce a little bit of herself to the audience. Her shuffled music sounds a lot like teknique. Our best wishes are with you.
