We had the good fortune of connecting with Cashflo Rizzy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cashflo, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I am from Norfolk, VA. It is not a easy place to come up at all. It’s a small city and if you get to make it out, then you really defied the odds. My city has molded me into the woman I am today. Majority of my blood, sweat, and tears came from the work I put in, back home. Norfolk is where I laid down my foundation. Norfolk is the essence. Atl is apart of building my legacy.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Artist, Battlerapper, and a writer. I wear alot of creative hats but being a rapper/entertainer is my passion. What sets me apart from everyone is that I am simply me. In this day in time, ppl tend to do whatever trending at this point in time. I am steadfast in creating my own trends. I am authentic and write all of my material. I got to where I am today because of GOD, no matter what I always put GOD first in anything that I do. I worked hard and believed in myself and I couldn’t have done that without prayer and my family who prays for me. It definitely wasn’t easy but I wouldn’t have wanted any other way. Lol I put in the pain and I needed that push at the moment. I learned along the way that when you’re blessed with a talent, use it. Tomorrow isn’t promised, live in the moment and take risk. Take every opportunity that comes your way. Live. I want the world to know that I am amazing and I speak from the heart. Just listen.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would go to edgewood. I love that side of Atl. We would shop hop down there. Maybe have some Harold’s or Fin and Feathers. Atl is popping! The entire downtown, metro area. There’s so many places I have yet to explore.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My sister Brisco. You’re supposed to be here with me.
