Houston rapper Lil Flip has resurfaced from the underground and has placed his foot on the gas with his new release Respect Me, which hit retail this week.
Produced by J Silva, Respect Me also features the likes of Lil Wayne, Keyshia Cole, E-40, and Daz Dillinger. The first single is titled, “Da #1 Fly Boy” and the album features tracks such as “Respect Me” which brings fans into the life of the rapper as it delivers a scope of his past and present conducts.
“Shawty Wanna Thugg” is also expected to re-create the R&B magic that he had from his 2004 album, U Gotta Feel Me, on the track “Sunshine.”
For those that have been too busy snapping their fingers and making out with their cell phones in Hip-Hop, Lil Flip gained the peak of his notoriety through his beef with rapper T.I. and cuts like “Game Over” and “The Way We Ball.”
“The thing about this album is that it’s so reflective of me, my music, life and lifestyle,” says the 28-year-old Lil Flip. “Trust me; everything I rap about is based on truth. So when I rhyme dirty style about the Bentleys, the clubs, the platinum, the girls, my life’s lessons or whatever, it’s not bragging, it’s just fact.”
Not taking anything away from Flip and his mark as a rapper, but some may have been under the impression that when he made the song “Game Over,” it might have actually been like a swan song, ironically. Let’ s see if he can still bring the heat.
