Flippa, FKA Skippa Da Flippa, is a ferocious presence behind the mic, standing out in the ATL scene with his gruff voice and impressive lyricism. After taking a break of over a year following high-profile collaborations with the likes of Migos, Lil Yachty, and Rich The Kid, Flippa announces Up To Something, his upcoming project, arriving soon. The follow-up to 2017’s Flippa McFadden 2, his mixtape series, Up To Something is a neat summary of what makes Flippa so special: aggressive and witty bars stampeding through innovative, atmospheric trap beats. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Today, he shares the first look from the upcoming project with the song, “Don’t Play Me.” Over spacey, plinky piano chords, Flippa sounds both melancholic and triumphant on the first song he’s released in a long time. Recalling old friends and celebrating his new Benz, Flippa displays his patience and frustrations on the song, which was produced by ILuvMuny
Born and raised in Palm Beach, Florida, Skippa Da Flippa moved to Atlanta when he was 13 years old. Shortly after arriving in ATL, Skippa made the acquaintance of Quavo and Takeoff, two future members of Migos. Skippa, Quavo, Takeoff, and later Offset, spent their youths rapping in abandoned houses, developing a reputation as the best rappers in their neighborhood. Inspired by the success of Migos, Skippa began to think of his rapping more as a career than a hobby, dropping I’m Havin, his first project for Quality Control Records, in 2014. Featuring guest appearances from all three members of Migos and production from the likes of Murda Beatz and Cassius Jay, I’m Havin’ was an overnight success, leading to heavy regional buzz and a successful tour. In 2015, Migos and Skippa recorded a track about a dance move that Skippa pioneered a couple years earlier: the Dab. Performed by everyone from Cam Newton to Hillary Clinton, the Dab grew into a massive worldwide dance craze. Since then, Skippa’s profile continued to rise, appearing on Lil Yachty’s massive “Minnesota” in 2016 and growing his Spotify fanbase to over 200,000 monthly listeners in the past few months.
