Happy Sunday everyone! Inspired by our Popeye Caution article, today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Dancehall’s “Flossing King“, Flippa Mafia! It’s all about the fashion as we go back to 2009 to check out, “Clothes Haffi Repeat” a.k.a. “Repeat”! Produced by Christopher “Longman” Birchill of Birchill Records on the “Baddaz Riddim“, the track finds Flippa Mafia challenging those who said you shouldn’t repeat your outfits. Given the prices he has paid for his Designer branded clothes and where he purchased them from, he proclaims that he’ll wear them over and over again because he owns the clothes. Unlike some of his peers, Flippa threw shade at those who had to return their outfits to the store, or to the original owners which can be quite embarrassing.
“Clothes Haffi Repeat” became one of Flippa Mafia’s signature tracks, and he enjoyed quite a buzz for a few years until he was nabbed by the DEA in 2013 during a drug bust. He was sentenced to 25 years in Prison in 2016. Despite the hand he was dealt, many still remember Flippa Mafia for his “flossing personality” and his selection of songs.
