ICYMI, the Left Coast has been going through a renaissance and next up to rise is singer/producer TeeFLii. The South Central, L.A. native is no newbie to the game, with four projects under his belt, including Fireworks, a 2013 collaborative album with go-to producer DJ Mustard. You may have seen him before in the 2005 film Rize as “Baby Tight Eyez” about the “krumping” dance craze in South Central. He's since left his dancing days behind and he's gearing up for his major-label debut, Starr, this year.
The 26-year-old calls his music “FLii&B” to describe his signature sound. He refers to his girls as “Annies” to keep from calling them shorties or bitches, replaces “turn up” with “stern up” and asks that you excuse his liquor in the beginning of each song. Features on Dom Kennedy’s “Still Callin’ and YG’s “Do It To Ya” have created a buzz for him, but he has an impressive catalogue of his own. Check out 10 FLii&B songs you need in your life.
