Welcome to the GARAGE Questionnaire— a set of questions for our times, with inquiries that range from delicate to unhinged—all the better to peer into the multifaceted minds of our creative heroes.
Flo Milli’s M.O. as a rapper is a form of ultra-confident, infectious brazenness. Look no further than her viral, breakout single “Beef FloMix,” where Milli ricochets through disorienting playground beats and helium-laden giggles while reminding all of us how she is a molotov cocktail of petty, hot, and low on patience. “I do what I please and you do what I ask / He love my confidence and that's what you lack,” she raps in one of the song’s most memorable moments.
Her ascent has been swift. “Beef FloMix” quickly became unavoidable, popping up all over TikTok and seemingly every other corner of the internet. Within a year, she had signed to RCA and released her debut record, Ho, Why is You Here? and proved herself to be more than a one-hit internet phenomenon. Entirely still inescapable, Flo Milli has continued to make herself more than known. Fortunately for us, she’s brought her humor and precision to answer the GARAGE Questionnaire.
