She was born on January 9, 2000, in Mobile, Alabama, USA, as Tamia Monique Carter.
”I grew up in kinda like a dysfunctional family. I mean, my dad was in my life until I was seven,” she told HotNewHipHop in October 2020. ”So, I was like a daddy’s girl. My mom and dad were together, and then when I turned like seven, they broke up, and that’s kind of always s##t … For the most part, I grew up with my mom and my sister.”
Her mother’s name is Monique Danielle.
Milli grew up listening to her mom’s favorite artists like Musiq Soulchild, Anthony Hamilton, Erykah Badu, and Jill Scott.
Carter starter to rap while in middle school.
In 2015, Milli released her first solo song, “No Hook.”
”Ever since I was younger, I already was very like woke in a way, I already knew like my purpose,” Carter said in an interview. ”And I knew I definitely didn’t want to be a doctor, like you know, the regular schmegler stuff. I wanted to be a star. Ever since I was like nine years old, I just have been writing music, and it just went up from there. I just wanted to be a rapper.”
In 2017, Carter began releasing music on her Soundcloud account.
On May 8, 2017, Milli created her YouTube channel. It has over 338k subscribers.
”I never was a viral internet star,” Carter said. ”I just used my internet platform to my advantage, but I’ve always been an artist first.”
In October 2018, she recorded the original version of her breakout single, “Beef FloMix,” a rework of 2015’s “Beef” by Playboi Carti and Ethereal.
The song became an immediate viral sensation, earning more than 130 million streams.
”Tik Tok was a major stepping stone for a lot of [musicians] coming in,” Milli said for Vogue in August 2020. She went on to say: ”I didn’t really understand what it was at first or how big it was, but once I got the hang of it, it was dope to see that my song was blowing up on there.”
Later, she inked a deal with RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. ”Flo Milli has an incredible future in front of her, and we’re honored to provide her with the publishing platform to help sky-rocket her career,” said Pulse Music Group co-CEO Scott Cutler.
