Alabama rapper Flo Milli was recently revealed as one of the artists who earned a coveted spot on the XXL Freshman issues.
During her new XXL ABC’s freestyle, the spitter calls for justice for Breonna Taylor.
Taylor was shot and killed by Louisville police officers in March during a botched raid on her apartment.
Former Lousiville Officer Brett Hankison was indicted by a grand jury in September on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree in the shooting that killed Taylor. None of the officers involved in the fatal encounter were charged directly with her death, and Hankison was the only one to face any charges.
Following public outrage, an anonymous juror filed a motion requesting to speak publicly about the decision. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron then admitted that he did not recommend that the jury indict any officers on homicide charges.
Hankison was released bond, which was set at just $15,000.
Flo Milli has not forgotten that Taylor has not received justice for the botched raid that led to her death.
“A** fatter than yours” for the letter A. Next is B, “Baddest b”tch breathin'”, she spits” Letter C, is “Coming for any ho that think she finna take my place,” and D is Don’t ever play with me, ho.”
Flo continues with her freestyle, but she sets a more somber tone when she gets to J. “Justice for Breonna Taylor,” she raps.
Last year, Flo pitched herself for the XXL Freshman Class 2020 but missed out to Chika.
She says she did not mind because she was happy to see another rapper from Alabama get the spot.
“I love seeing another woman from Alabama rapping her ass off and consistently applying pressure,” she told Refinery29. “I’m down to support her, always.”
“I meet girls [from Alabama] all the time who tell me that we inspire them. It’s dope to see people who come from where you come from, and it inspires those out there who are looking to be in the music industry.”
