If you combined Calvin Cambridge’s skills on the basketball court in Like Mike with Lil Bow Wow‘s rapping ability in 2002- you’d get FlauJae Johnson in 2022.

The daughter of late Savannah, Georgia, rapper Camoflauge spits insightful, clean and story-telling bars with a confident, crisp flow. In Sprayberry’s 80-21 win over Kennesaw Mountain on Jan. 21, 2022, the LSU signee knocked down a school-record 12 3-pointers.

She has over 800,000 social media followers across Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.
