Just fell in love with this the first minute and a half… Skratch Bastid & The Gaff killed this!  It’s all blends of mid-60’s & 70’s female funk, soul and R&b breaks with cuts, scratches & edits all by Canada‘s in demand DJs, Skratch Bastid & The Gaff.  Recorded between July 2010 & June 2012 this is something you can play anywhere, anytime and with anyone. If you want to know what your parents listened to or for some of you your grandparents this is IT but with a plop of cool whip on top. With known to some unknown to others such talented female singers like Wendy Rene, Ruby Andrews, Camille Yarborough & Nina Simone.

Verse 1:
Hop up out the Jag with a bag full of walnuts
Cash flow steady so I’m ready when they roll up
She scoop me in a Bentley or Empala,
Flat screen droppin call it Autumn when it fall brah
Decapitate a snake when they crawl up
No wonder he be nervous when he call up
He know I’m bout my money never drama
He stiff, I’m bored, cut it short, saw dust.
My shawty thicker than the bible
She is not my girlfriend, she is my disciple
Disrespect me and she will turn into a psycho
Leave your body in a bag, labeled for recycle.
FUCK BOY, we will reuse you,
Leave you dogged out, Blues Clues
I’m layed back but I’m ratchet if I choose too
And being broke, that ain’t something that I’m used to

Late night, Early Morn
Take flight, Airborne
No sleep, non stop
Too deep, off top

Verse 2:
I’m the type of chick to make the money flip,
Fuck a rubber band, I keep a money clip
Keep it classy man these fakes be on some funny shit
On the sidelines talking while im runnin shit.
This is game day full court press,
More money more problems, less money more stress so…
So I’ma beat the odds, that’s why I speak to God
She know the streets are callin, so Ima eat regardless,
Shout out to New Orleans, Mississippi know I got it,
I blow they mind in Harlem, I be on my peak performance,
LA be on it too, ask them what they want to do,
Fly me out, put me up, black card, run it through

Late night, Early Morn
Take flight, Airborne
No sleep, non stop
Too deep, off top

I’m coming up , bank account blowing up,
Economy Is fuckin up,
Cold winter blowing up,
I guess its summer in my building,
I swear I’m gonna kill it till I’m winning makin’ millions
Don’t talk about it, Be about it, everybody dream
I fuck the crowd until they cum and every cream
Everybody seem like everybody keep a beam
In realitiy bout everybody pussy as they seem
Like General Petreaus, be careful who you votin’ for
These bitches will betray us,
They don’t give a fuck about you or anybody,
So we Democrat the End of that, republican party (plat, Plat)
But me I’m going green, grab a triple beam,
Blow up on the scene and make a liberal supreme
They say I live a dream, but I don’t even sleep
I take a nap in the studio, wake up to this beat.

Late night, Early Morn
Take flight, Airborne
No sleep, non stop
Too deep, off top

#NewRelease – @RapsodyMusic’s “She Got Game” hosted by DJ DRAMA

Press Play. Ok. Let Go. Sit Back. Listen. Do not attempt to press forward, feel free to press rewind, might be mandatory in order to completely feel these lyrics. This is real hiphop my friends. Rapsody‘s newest project presented by Gangsta Grillz is a mixtape titled “She Got Game” featuring the likes of 9th Wonder, Common, Jay ELectronica, Chance The Rapper, Mac Miller, DJ Premier, and many more. As she claims “Jamla for Life” I can’t help but feel completely happy for this artist to have found a home that allows her to be great. Music these days seems to be somewhat forced or rushed even half-assed but we have yet to find something from 9th Wonder’s name on it that is any of the aforementioned. We love Rapsody as may have read before here on FemaleFlow but if we didn’t convince you the first time shame on you. Fortunately you have another chance…. so SHOOT!

#WORLDPREMIER of @IamTiaLondon “Live it Up” VIDEO produced by @Traxster

“I just want to stay high for all the times we been low. I just wanna live my life, I just wanna live it right. Live it up! So put your hands up high, we gonna live it up tonight. Live it Up, Live it Up” ~ Tia London


Tia London is dope. We really could end it there but that just wouldn’t do you or her justice. Female Flow is here to tell you about the amazing, talented women who are currently following their dreams and passion for music. Tia London was introduced to us by our fellow friend, the Legendary Traxster and we instantly fell in love with her.
We introduced you to Tia London last year when she dropped “The Overdose” in November, a collaboration with the undeniably talented super producer Traxstar. The project made a couple people sit up in their chairs and had no choice but to respect the musicality and realness of it from Track 1 to the high energy “Drunk”.  You can literally play it from front to back which is very rare today. She relates to us ladies, she doesn’t try to over-stunt, she sings, she raps and she is just real about it. With this new video “Live it Up” is an upbeat and somewhat of a motivational anthem for those going through something. Definitely something to turn up and bang in the speakers. #FEMALEFLOWAPPROVED
