[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/Xv6Ds99h8c4 service=youtube width=560 height=315 type=iframe]

You know we love Saweetie over here. Despite all that internet side-talk, the Multi-platinum selling ICY rapper released a new track and video for “Pretty B*tch Freestyle” in celebration of her birthday yesterday!

You may remember she recently released her single “Tap In,” inspired by fellow Bay Area artist Too Short’s classic “Blow The Whistle.” Beside’s a little push back from folks who were tired of her sampling old school classics, she still received looks from BillboardComplexMaximE!, and more. The Wall Street Journal also included “Tap In” in their summer playlist, commenting, “The bumping sample of Too Short’s ‘Blow The Whistle’ and confidence of Saweetie’s vocals are sure to demand inclusion on lots of summer playlists.”

Peep her freestyle above, and listen to “Tap In” HERE and watch video HERE.

Lecrae Partners with Love Beyond Walls To Plant Portable Wash Stations Around Atlanta Metro Area.

We here at Stuff Fly People Like are dedicated to bringing you all the good news in the midst of this Global pandemic called The Corona Virus.

And this is FLY! Multi Grammy Award-winning platinum selling artist, Lecrae (and friend of the Fly People) has partnered with Love Beyond Walls to plant portable hand washing stations around the Atlanta Metro Area, with the purpose of ensuring that homeless and displaced people have the option of cleaning their hands in response to Coronavirus (Covid19).

Lecrae

(Executive Director and Founder of Love Beyonce Walls, Terence Lester)

How Fly Is That?

Before the announcement, Stuff Fly People Like caught up with Lecrae to get the scoop, and this is what he had to say:

Stuff Fly People Like: “We heard that you are doing some great things in the city of Atlanta to help with this pandemic, can you tell us a little more about that?”

Lecrae: “Yes, my good friend Terence Lester runs a non profit called, Love Beyond Walls. I’ve worked with him for years to get involved to help people experiencing homelessness, to hear their stories and humanize them. And I’m taking my staff and my artist over to the Dignity Museum, that he created, just to help us wrap our minds around how to help people experiencing homelessness. During the pandemic, a lot of us are buying up the hand sanitizers, and we have the space at home to wash our hands, and we are not thinking about people who don’t have the means to wash their hands. People who are at risk, because they have tuberculosis or bronchitis from the conditions that they live in. So who is taking care of these folks? So Terrence and I got together, and I asked him, what can I do? And he said, I want to get some portable sinks to put out all over the city. And I asked him the cost, he told me, and my answer was, say no more, let’s do it. So I brought some portable sinks, and I partnered up with him, and we are going to put them throughout the city. So that people experiencing homelessness can have the opportunity to sanitize on a consistent basis.”

We can’t express how commendable this is!

The initiative kicked off at 10am Today, Thursday March 19th at Love Beyond Wall’s Center located at 3270 East Main Street, College Park, GA 30337.

Lecrae will join the Love Beyond Walls team at 10am to begin assembling the sinks after which they will be filled with water, loaded on trucks, and distributed to key locations frequented by the homeless in the Atlanta Metro Area.

Please spread the word!

The City Girls Prepare To, “BE OUTSIDE!”

The City Girls

Fly Guys Elliott Wilson and Brian B. Dot Miller of Rap Radar, recently sat down with The City Girls to discuss everything from new music, their new celebrity status, relationships, and more. During the interview the “Act Up,” ladies show nothing but gratitude for their fans and platform. The most important gem we took from it, was their complete humility. “I don’t think that I’ll ever be a Monster,” says J.T. “Or think I’m a celebrity like that,” as she explains an interaction with a fan who noticed her in disbelief, as she casually walked around a Bowling Alley in Miami. “I mean, for the most part I like it, you know, I always wanted to be famous, so I Love it,” adds Young Miami, who held the group down effortlessly and pregnant, while her right hand served a bid in prison.

Peep the dope interview below, and let us know your thoughts!

Tinashe wants us to ‘Die A Little Bit.’

Listen Ya’ll, we don’t know what it’s gonna take to make Tinashe POP like the star she is, but we are glad she keeps going for it. Our girl has chucked the majors the deuces and decided to go the Indie route this time around, and we ain’t mad. According to Forbes.com;

Tinashe’s split with record label RCA earlier this year was a symbolic transfer of creative power back to an artist who many believe shouldn’t have been limited by label executives in the first place.

Touché! 

Her new single, ‘Die a Little Bit,’ features British rapper, Ms. Banks, and we must admit, it’s a BOP!

Now you know, we LOVE Tinashe on a dance floor, so the minute the beat drops, you know what time it is. And she doesn’t disappoint. We hope this works for her, because lord KNOWS she deserves a break. Step in, and give us your thoughts.

Cheers to hoping it’s only up from here.

FYI, This is the first release off of her new indie imprint, Tinashe Music Inc.

1. What brings out your Dark Phoenix. (superhuman abilities) and what are they?

When it’s go time! I thrive when it’s time to show up and show out. Whether its performing live, on tv, on film, during photo shoots, teaching, or public speaking, I tap into “go mode” and give my all for the audience to receive. At the end of the day, I am human, but I am also a performer and I believe all performers have somewhat of an alter ego that we have an on & off switch for. When my switch is on that’s when my Dark Phoenix comes out… and she’s a BEAST!

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

I’m all for women empowerment! We are so much stronger together than we are individually. I have truly been supported by women from all different walks of life and it is so amazing to see how we connect. I always do my best to reciprocate and support my ladies however I can!

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

Five things that help me feel empowered are: 1. Performing 2. Genuine love & support 3. Accomplishing something for the first time. 4. Taking risks & stepping out of my comfort zone. 5. Most importantly, loving myself and others, flaws & all!

4. How do you plan to empower other women?

I always look to empower other women through supporting their dreams and endeavors. I help guide with relevant advice and positive reinforcement, while giving back and sharing knowledge from my own from life experiences.

1.What brings out your Dark Phoenix (superhuman abilities) and what are they? 

When I’m under pressure or when I’m being my most creative self. My superhuman abilities are being able to think quickly on my feet and making something out of nothing.

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

Women empowerment feels like sisterhood. It feels like honestly, trust, and respect for other women. It looks like every situation when you just needed to get advice or support and another woman was there to help. That feeling of protection is like none other.

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

1.Sharing experiences with other like minded women 2.Learning something new 3.Making a woman look and feel her best 4. Giving love and encouragement to the youth 5. Helping someone in need

4. How do you plan to empower other women?

I do it daily by helping guide women into more healthy hair care practices and styling tips. Great hair gives ultimate confidence. Also focusing more on self love and the beauty of what we are born with is a message that I can’t say enough. I plan to continue to share my love for textured hair and all its incredible facets.

1. What brings out your Dark Phoenix? (superhuman abilities) and what are they?

My superhuman abilities are healing with Art! I am Art! creating Art with and on other people has been my passion and also has been my way of surviving which also became my career path. what brings it out of me is my passion for different cultures, nature, animals, traveling, space, things that are healing to us when we view it from a bigger picture. we can compose and express ourselves through these elements and therefore help create healing images in our forms that we can carry with us.

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

Women empowerment to me is anything that inspires mental freedom as sexual freedom, economical freedom and independence and freedom to love and control your own body and appearance. Uplifting women without having to put another woman down!

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

1. I feel empowered listening to other women who don’t give a f*ck! It is very refreshing because you actually realize how simple it is, how we know we allow our minds to get blocked with so much bullshit just because we want to fit into a cute society frame whatever that is, and we end up living in invisible cages.

2. being a woman in 2019 is also very empowering I feel like women now are finally starting to really understand each other‘s value and support each other and therefore I also feel like men are starting to respect women more as well even though we have a long way to go still.

3. I feel very empowered when people value my opinions in corporate/business meetings and when people really respect and listen to me when I do business no matter what type of culture they come from.

4. I feel empowered when a man cares about my sexual pleasures

5. I feel empowered being around other women when we get to really just open up and laugh about things that we feel that we have in common

4. How do you plan to empower other women?

I have always been the type of person who practices never preaches! so what I usually do is empower through my actions of spreading as much positivity in general because this world needs love, needs healing, needs kindness, needs compassion, needs to rid itself of ego. The world is mother nature, the world is healing female energy. there are so many negative energies that I don’t want to even associate myself with in order to inspire to live a life far away from destructiveness so that we can fully evolve and grow into our true self and be who we authentically were born to be… to live a limitless life!
