Playlist: Flo Rida
Mon, 23 Feb 2009 07:18:26
Rapper Flo Rida is on top of the world. Having beat his own damn record for most digital single sales in a week with last year's bumpin' anthem "Low" from Mail on Sunday with "Right Round" from his forthcoming platter R.O.O.T.S., Flo has positioned himself as a major player in the hip-hop sphere.
His two singles even sold more individually than the super anticipated comeback track from Eminem, making Flo the record holder, something which he is proud of but not cocky about. (When asked about how he felt about the achievement, he uttered, "I was like, 'Wow!'") Despite the fact that everyone and their mother is cranking Flo jams, we decided to check in with Flo himself, who sports tattooed likenesses of Jimi Hendrix, James Brown and Tina Turner on his person, to find out what's on top of his personal playlist.
Check out Flo Rida's playlist below, and don't forget to check out his latest album R.O.O.T.S. when it hits shelves this spring.
Flo Rida's Playlist:
1. 2Pac — Me Against the World
2. Young Jeezy — The Recession
3. Flo Rida — R.O.O.T.S.
About his own forthcoming album, R.O.O.T.S., he comments, "People haven't got it yet, obviously, but I am listening to mine, so I can remember the lyrics when I am performing!"
4. Outkast — Aquemeni
5. NOTORIOUS B.I.G. — Ready to Die
Flo saw the movie, Notorious, which was about the slain rapper’s life, and enjoyed it, saying, "I know some people had problems with the movie, since they were close to the situation, but I liked it a lot."
