Floami Fly (pronounced FLO-AH-ME FLY) is a hip-hop artist, songwriter, and performer from Chattanooga. Her latest mixtape, 4th Quarter, is slated to drop on Friday.
Review for Floami Fly:
Floami began writing and pursuing music professionally in 2010, and has since performed in Chattanooga, Atlanta, Knoxville, and Nashville.
In 2012, Floami Fly was named artist of the week by Power 94. Fly has also appeared in Misadventures Magazine Music Review in 2014 as an artist to watch and was invited to perform at Chattanooga's annual music festival "Nightfall", as a featured guest of SoCro.
In 2017, Fly received praise and acclamation from The Pulse magazine and Nooga.com for her debut album ASYLUM. The production took a look at mental illness, addiction, and reconciliation, and garnered a sold-out crowd. Later that year, she placed first in the Atlanta-based competition "The Bar Exam", earning her the right to perform at Atlanta's A3C Festival alongside other National Bar Exam champions.
Floami’s most recent exhibit on Oct. 24 brought her new-age hip-hop sound to the Noontunes concert series in downtown Chattanooga, at the newly-renovated Miller Park. Noontunes is produced in conjunction with River City Company, is also sponsored by TVFCU, and made possible through partners at SoundCorps, Chattanooga Convention & Visitors Bureau, Jazzanooga, WUTC and River City Sessions.
In the latest mixtape, 4th Quarter, with four tracks Floami showcases a sassy, feminine valor with traces of Missy Elliott and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, but with the unlimited toolbox of flow, singing, and accents of a Kendrick Lamar or Lauren Hill. Lyrically, she brings poetry draped with the East Tennessee perspective of someone growing up in a polarized and, at times, gentrified world of music and media.
As a much lighter and more playful follow up to ASYLUM, Floami still stays true to her dark roots and rapid-fire lyrics, no holds barred, and this time, it’s personal. Bringing dramatization, raw energy, and serious skills, Floami attacks the industry and sexism with competitive vigor.
She will be performing Saturday at The Signal in a special female showcase with Hive Theory, Monday Night Social, Spinster, Ashley and the X's, and Different Diva MUSIC.
