Next Wednesday is February 14, the holiday we’ve all been waiting for to bring us out of the late-winter slump. While Valentine’s Day lands in the middle of the week this year, don’t let that be a reason to keep you inside, especially with the many holiday events taking place across the city. If you’re looking for some fun and mock romance, consider The Hi-Fi in Fountain Square, where Flynt Flossy and Turquoise Jeep will be taking over V-Day.
You may recognize him from the viral YouTube music video “Lemme Smang It” with Yung Humma. That was my first Flynt Flossy experience, with “Fried or Fertilized” a close second. “Lemme Smang It” was a YouTube sensation, with over 10 million views in 2010. However, as with many internet sensations, it was fairly short-lived from my perspective. I moved on to other things, and didn’t hear anything about Flynt Flossy, Yung Humma, or Turquoise Jeep Records until now.
But I couldn’t have been more wrong. Flynt Flossy and Turquoise Jeep Records weren’t just a flash in the pan. They were just getting started.
Turquoise Jeep Records
