Call your best friend and tell them the news! 5 years ago Volume 1 of Female Flow dropped and changed the level of attention that folks were giving indie female artists. From Nikki Grier to Tina B (now Tina World Order) there is some fire on this one that still bumps – FIVE YEARS LATER. Since then many have tried to follow suit but no one did it like us. Despite the pause we haven’t left, we haven’t stopped supporting the ladies on the mic, on the stages or behind the boards – just check our Instagram!
You can download or stream this mixtape right now at DOWNLOAD and don’t forget to follow on Twitter @FemaleFlowMusic
New from Chicago’s Tina B is “B!tchez Trap 2!” and for those that didn’t know she just won FIVE $TACKZ at the Jack’n for Beatz in her hometown <pictured with Dj Envy>. Currently working on her own album but be on the look out for “Wicked Love” which is a rocking hit. Little birdie also said a video is coming for this new single… Trap with us! (wink) #StackorStarve
Have your cake and eat it too. The highly anticipated mixtape from the red headed, fiery songstress/emcee Justina Valentine offers listeners a mouth watering selection of eclectic music for all tastes. Red Velvet boasts production from Grammy award winning producers Infamous, Shy Boogs, Ricky Blaze, The Heatmakerz, & The Colleagues, along with a feature from platinum selling recording artist, Maino. It’s a one of a kind project from a wildly unique & talented artist whose skill set is something quite impressive and unseen by any artist out.
WE LOVE THIS PIECE OF #REDVELVET from one of our favorites @JUSTINAMUSIC
Inspiration can come at any moment. Maryann decided she wanted to rework this Goldlink song on Friday (3/28/14). She came up with an idea for the concept, and N8 got to work on the beat. In this remake of Goldlink’s “When I Die”, Maryann reworks the song from a different perspective. Instead of focusing on her own demise, she points out how thinking about someones death can bring up such emotional reactions, negative or positive. This track is a sharp contrast to her playful last release #CookingForBae. Her Sophomore album “Futuristic Always” is set to release April 28th, it features Stones Throw artist Guilty Simpson, Devin The Dude and more.
Low Leaf. Love the name. Love the spirit. Love the music and I think you will too! She is Filipino-American with satin vocals that put you on a cloud. Some have called her weird but what is weird when it comes to art, right? I think a better word would maybe be enchanting. I had seen her video “June Gloom” directed by Henry Kaplan that was amazing visuals but what stood out was how original and naturally different she is. Below is her latest release and she has made it a #FreeDownload for you to enjoy. Be on the look out for more as she is set to drop something April 29th via Fresh Selects. In the meantime also check her BANDCAMP for more!
I mean, need we say more…? Don’t say there aren’t female artists out here, “All my bitches on deck, standing on the frontline coming for your neck, grenades ready to explode, pest control for you cockroaches, I suggest you respect us before you approach us, any other method is hopeless…” states Da Brat on her verse. This is an exclusive “She-Mix” with Babs, Vita, Da Brat and our girl Justina so make sure you download, play it and share it!
Kaye Fox will drop her debut EP, Hear I Am in April 2014. The project is said to be raw emotion over raw production, fusing her unique blend of R&B/Soul and Hip Hop. Not only is Hear I Am written almost entirely by Kaye, but she also co-produced all of the songs on the EP along with her team, Emmaculate & Shebazz Curtis. This single, “Used To Love You” features rising Chicago Hip Hop artist YP of Universal Republic… and stay tuned, video dropping soon!
Straight out of Dallas, Texas is Ms. Tri-Eighty who just dropped her newest mixtape… We have dubbed her the “Keisha Cole of Rap” because she has something some just don’t or if they do they don’t share it the way she does and that is a STORY that many can identify with. Growing up in the streets with a father in and out of jail Tri-Eighty like myself hung out with friends while her single mom worked to keep a roof over her head. From trouble-maker to redemption: Tri Eighty eventually found God and you can feel the God and the Gangsta all through out this mixtape. There are moments when you feel that spiritual/reality struggle that 2Pac had in his rhymes. Not glorifying it just telling her story and not trying to be hard or someone she isn’t… just keeping it 100!!
