“Sam Robertson, also known as 550 Flokk, was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York ventured into music through a different path than most East Coast emcees. Rooted in loyalty, Flokk’s parents have been married for over 40 years. Being the oldest of six children, Flokk
understands the vital role family played in developing his artistry. After graduating from Boys and Girls High School in 2007, he attended Medgar Evers College where he pursued a degree in nursing on a full academic scholarship. Realizing working in the medical field wasn’t going to fulfill him personally, Robertson stopped attending college in 2009 which is where his divulged his energy into music.
Flokk’s first exposure to the music industry was as a club promoter. Using existing relationships, Flokk was one of the first New York promoters to bring Universal Music Group artists Tyga and Nicki Minaj to Brooklyn. Compounding on his knack for networking, Flokk
became a manager for other artists until 2017. Later that year, Flokk released his debut single “Takin’ Off” to all streaming platforms.
Taking inspiration from Dave East and J. Cole, Flokk is a throwback to imaginative New York lyricism with a modern bounce. Focused on leaving a legacy for his son, Flokk’s talent combined with an enterprising business acumen puts him in a lane with limited competition.”
