Flo Rida: Born Tramar Dillard on September 17, 1979, Flo Rida was raised by a single mother in Miami’s rough neighborhood of Carol City, Florida. Music helped Flo Rida stay on the straight path. His father was a talented musician who encouraged his son to express himself through music. Growing up, Flo Rida was exposed to all kinds of music, thanks in large part to his sisters, some of whom formed a local gospel group. When he was a teenager, Flo Rida found local success rapping with a group called the Groundhoggz. At 18, he became the hype man for Fresh Kid Ice from 2 Live Crew. Eventually, Flo Rida caught the attention of DeVante Swing, formerly of famed R&B group Jodeci and spent a few years in Los Angeles working with him. Unable to land a record deal, Flo Rida returned home to Miami and in late 2006 hooked up with Poe Boy Entertainment and its CEO, Elric “E-Class” Prince.
In December 20, 2006 Flo Ridainked a deal with Atlantic Records and in 2009 started his own management company, Strong Arm, with longtime friend and manager, Lee “ Freezy” Prince. With the success of his management company Flo Rida and Lee “Freezy” Prince launched their own record label, IMG, in June 2011. With his musical success Flo Rida got back to his roots of giving back and started “Big Dreams For Kids” a nonprofit foundation that is committed to inspiring future leaders.
Lizzo: Tossing her hair, flashing a confident smile, and “Feelin’ good as hell,” Lizzo wields the kind of voice that’s right at home in soul, pop, hip-hop, R&B, rock, and gospel. The vivacious and versatile vocalist’s impassioned delivery and dynamic range bonds the six tracks on her critically acclaimed major label debut EP, Coconut Oil [Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records], achieving what she refers to as a “genre-less style.”
“My voice becomes the genre,” she explains. “It’s the common denominator between any track—whether we’ve got a West African backbeat, throwback soul, rap groove, or dancehall production. The vocals are the thread that ties the whole story together. It frees me up in a way.”
That voice also turned the gleefully unpredictable Coconut Oil into a quiet phenomenon in late 2016. Lauded by Noisey, Entertainment Weekly, Paste, Rolling Stone, Spin, Idolator, and more, the EP boasted the hit “Good As Hell,” which featured on the Original Soundtrack to Barbershop: The Next Cut and churned out over 7.3 million Spotify streams and 1.3 million YouTube views in less than six months. This collection represents the culmination of a wild musical roller coaster ride thus far for Lizzo.
