Twisting his nimble flow around skittering productions, ATL’s Flippa (FKA Skippa Da Flippa) is an influential trap figure. Reflecting on his past trials and tribulations, Flippa proves that he’s no rookie in the rap game on “Been Through It.” In the video, Flippa returns to the site of a previous heist, digging up a briefcase full of cash before fleeing a pair of armed assailants. Ferociously attacking a haunting and minimal instrumental, marked by eerie church organ and subterranean bass, Flippa recounts the things he’s seen and the things he’s prepared to do to keep his lofty perch in the hood. “Been Through It” is the first video from Up To Something, the rapper’s upcoming mixtape, and the second single following the spacey and triumphant “Don’t Play Me.”
