– Flipp Dinero sound is very unique, versatile, you know what I'm sayin'? I wanna show people like, yo, there's more to this than what you think it is, you know what I'm sayin'? Which is why I'm going to have the love songs and the emotional songs The songs that'll make you be on the highway, put the window down, smoke a L real quick

The songs that'll make you sit down and think, contemplate about life, challenge you mentally, you know what I'm sayin'? Songs you'll be in the club doing the bop to, going crazy It's a vibe I got the name Flippa from since I was a youngin' I was just in the hood wildin' out, you know what I'm sayin'? And I skateboard too, so I got the name Flippa Dinero came from my love for money

Yo, you love money, you know what I'm sayin'? You love dinero And I was just like, "Yo, Flippa Dinero," you know what I'm sayin'? And as I got older, I dropped the "a" I've been in music all my life My mother and father, they instilled in me music, you know what I'm sayin'? I grew up in the church My mother and father was in the choir, from since I was young, I always sang, you know what I'm sayin'? And I did poetry as well

Music was always a way of life for me The breakthrough to rap, I can't really put a dot on that It just happened My father's a big influence on me Music-wise, Jadakiss

I listen to a lot of Jadakiss Was crazy on Jadakiss I listen to a lot of old school music too, Bobby Caldwell, Bob Marley, Dennis Brown You know what I'm sayin'? GUALA The definition to me, it means, God's Unique Accolade, Life Acquired

I feel like we're all blessings to life I feel like we're all blessed with life, we're blessed with multiple things in life It's just a way of living to me So, "How I Move" When I wrote that song I was just going through a point and time in my life, where I just felt a lot of people was just watching me and they was just skeptical

Eye on me, you know what I'm sayin'? Everyone was just watching me, you know what I'm sayin'? And I was just catching anxiety, and my way when I catch anxiety is to just work So, I hopped in the studio and I was just like, "Yo, I feel like things aren't going the way they should "Everyone is watching how I move, you know what I'm sayin'? "Everyone is criticizing me "The way I rock my diamonds, or how I do this and that" So, I just put my pain on wax, and "How I Move" came about

I previewed the record on Instagram and everyone went crazy, like on the Internet, everyone just went crazy They lost their minds So, I was just like, "Yo, who should I feature on this?" "Lil Baby, Lil Baby, Lil Baby, Lil Baby, Lil Baby" I'm like, "It's inevitable" You know what I'm sayin'? One of the things that I love about collaborating with other artists, is you capture a vibe

It's authentic, it's real, you know what I'm sayin'? It's not fake You actually do what you do with the artist, as opposed to just facading and the verses sent There's no actual relationship, but just being able to step out of your boundaries and capture a vibe with someone else, that's a blessing I made "Leave Me Alone" to capture a vibe, not thinking that it would be one I just made it with the intentions of it being a regular song, but then when I released it, it was just so relatable

Everyone caught flight to it and I was just like, "Oh (bleep), "I think I got one" It's not, "I think I got one," it's, "Oh (bleep), that's one" (Flipp Dinero's "Westside" playing) So "Westside," that was a song that I wrote on the Westside, for my girl, you know what I'm sayin'? It was just a letter to my shorty I was pretty much just expressing to her how I feel, you know what I'm sayin'? Just capturing the vibe, you know what I mean, on the Westside and the hook is like, "Call you from the Westside, I let you know, yeah" I'm letting her know like, "I ain't trying to (bleep) around" You know what I'm sayin'? I'm calling you

I'm showing you what it is It's lit over here So, the creative for the video, pretty much, it was turnt up, you know what I'm sayin'? We had ATVs, because I'm a big ATV rider We had fireworks, we had the foreign cars, warehouses I was trying to really just capture the whole mythical like, "Yo Flipp, what you up to? "What's really going on right now? "You sayin' call from the Westside? You in a warehouse

" Like, I'm just trying to relay a weird message, you know what I'm sayin'? But a message that'll be understood in a cool way if you understand what I'm sayin' People will see it and be like, "Oh (bleep), "this kid is different" I'm really trying to make music that has longevity, as opposed to just the temporary satisfaction Something that you can go back and listen to and say, "Man, he was really speaking facts" You know what I'm sayin'?
