Flo Rida Goes Back To His “R.O.O.T.S.” On Sophomore CD

Southern rapper Flo Rida is currently gearing up for the release of his follow-up to last year’s Mail On Sunday.

The July ’08 XXL cover star – where he appeared alongside Miami hip-hop heads Rick Ross, DJ Khaled and Trina – will be dropping the new project entitled R.O.O.T.S. (Routes of Overcoming the Struggle) on April 7th via Poe Boy/Atlantic according to Billboard.

Rida’s first single has already debuted on the net. Titled “Right Round,” the song which can be found on his website and MySpace page, is a take on the 80s hit “You Spin Me Right Round (Like A Record),” bey Dead Or Alive.

The muscle bound rapper made headlines recently for scoring the top selling digital download for ‘08. Flo Rida’s song “Low” received 4.4 million downloads by Nielsen SoundScan’s records.

In related new, the Sunshine State rapper is set to perform at the Adult Video News (AVN) Awards tomorrow in Las Vegas. Rida will be joined by St. Louis rapper Chingy. – Elan Mancini

    I hope for his sake, this album is good. The last one was just commercial bullshit.

    • $ykotic

      I think commercial is his lane.

      Could’ve done a lil better with the acronym.

  • Sidewalks Of NY

    His next album will probably sound like his debut album. Full of club records. Thats his lane and the females like his music, so if that formula is working for him, no need to change it up.

    Flo Rida is a fucking clown. I hate his music.

  • ajack

    I’m gonna have to stick up for my boy Flo Rida here. Yeah I understand sometimes lyrically is is underpar, but he makes hot songs and that’s the bottom line. He had some bangers on that last album, and hopefully R.O.O.T.S. will be as successful if not more than his prior release.
