What’s next in music: Flipp Dinero’s internet-igniting rap
A little over a year ago, Brooklyn-bred rapper and singer Flipp Dinero uploaded “Leave Me Alone” on SoundCloud and it immediately took flight, thanks to its almost too relatable theme and scream-singable chorus. New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. boosted its virality on the internet and then Drake flipped Flipp’s 15 minutes into a more permanent status with a co-sign. And all of a sudden his lyrics became more ironic because the masses had caught on, and no one was planning on leaving Flipp Dinero alone anytime soon.
And we can say this for certain because today we’re surfacing even more new music from this rising star as part of the next installment of “First on SoundCloud” – a celebration of those love-at-first-stream moments when you discover your next favorite artist.
Raised by Haitian parents with strong morals, Flipp got his start singing in the church and later discovered hip-hop by way of early-aughts rap gods like Biggie, Tupac, Styles P, Jadakiss and Fabolous. He skateboarded when he was younger, at some point acquired the nickname Flipper, and when he began rapping seriously, he set his sights on getting his loaf of money and supporting his family. And thus his tag “Flipp Dinero” came to be.
Since uploading his first track on SoundCloud in 2015, Flipp Dinero has had write-ups in Billboard and HYPEBEAST, was named a contender for XXL’s 2019 Freshman Class, and opened for JAY-Z and Beyonce on their NY/NJ “On The Run II” tour stop. His latest release is sure to keep the internet aflame – as it exercises his sonic differentiation and that strategic lyrical repetition that gets etched on your brain.
