TeeFLii is low key a Los Angeles staple in the rap game. Coming up during the good old days of West Coast turn up, it was hit singles “24 Hours” featuring 2 Chainz and “This D” that would take over radio airwaves and clubs all over the world. Beyond that, he’s had the beautiful opportunity of working very closely with the late Nipsey Hussle, both representing South Central Los Angeles where they’re from.
Most recently, TeeFLii released his joint EP with Dom Kennedy, self-titled to highlight his growth. In any case, he has his eyes set on the one award that matters: that Grammy.
King Ice caught up with the Los Angeles artist to discuss how big chains and jewelry can hurt you in the long run.
Do you feel like as an artist you have to wear jewelry?
Nope. Certain artists that haven’t been in the game for a long time, don’t realize that the outcomes of really doing that and spending the money on that type of jugg can have an effect on longevity. Of course they want to do it because that’s the generation’s style right now. Always been in the entertainment business. For entertainers, it’s always been jewelry. If you do it, make sure you have a stable condition after that.
