Flex - A Ride With Flex

Flex sent a really detailed, if slightly overzealous, email, which probably provides a better introduction than any critical assessment of his EP would, so hopefully he won't mind it being shared with you word-for-word:
"Hello my name is Flex, I'm Hip-hop artist from Long Island, New York. It was during my teen years that music became the driving force of my life. I began to do everything humanly possible to elevate myself, to elevate my craft. I found myself constantly trying to change my environment, challenging myself to adapt to different elements to induce my creativity. You’ve got to understand at the time, I lived in Valley Stream and I was a senior in High School. Its nothing like Harlem or Brooklyn, where creativity and individualism is promoted. So, establishing my identity as an artist became as essential as breathing. And thus Flex was born. New York used to be the Mecca of Hip Hop, my goal as an artist is to be a part of the movement that restores NY to its former glory. I want to put New York back in a position of power. I want people who grew up in the gritty streets of New York, to feel like it’s possible to beat the odds. I want to give people hope."
Peace to Menace for his flip of "No Scrubs" on track four.
