Toronto rapper Flex The Antihero recently broke the silence with a confident new single “Pray” following a hiatus...
Flex The Antihero, who you should be familiar with by this point - had a successful year in 2014. SALEM still making waves a year later, and a deluxe edition on the way with more material, Flex drops his first video of 2015 for "Medicated" featuring label-mate DillanPonders and Emerson Brooks. We all numb the pain somehow, doze off from the insanity that can form around us to get that peace of mind. M Mac and Emerson Brooks provide the platform on the production to start it off. The visuals by Jay Baskey bring you down, and than back up again as we all get "Medicated". Peep Flex's new video and stay tuned for SALEM Deluxe.
RKulture recently sat down with Flex The Antihero to discuss a number of topics ranging from his project SALEM his taste in music and favorite albums. The Smash Mouth team, the music industry and more! Get to know Flex more below and go check out SALEM if you haven't yet!
Do you hear the sounds of the horns? Flex The Antihero is back with a brand new visual off SALEM and ready to take them to "War". This Captured Films directed video sets the scene perfectly as Flex goes all in on this M Mac and Emerson Brooks production showing just where he stands in the fight. As one of my personal favorites off SALEM, whenever "War" gets played the volume is cranked to the max and it's only one of many bangers on the album. Sha Prince is right there the whole time letting everybody know what's up during the breaks. Maybe we'll see an Antiheroes remix to this one? That would be cool. Check out the video for "War" and be sure to go check out SALEM if you haven't yet! Download: Flex The Antihero - SALEM
The wait is over! From "Big Dreams", "Medicated" to "The Wicked" you were slowly introduced to Flex The Antihero's latest project SALEM leading up to today. If you read the review yesterday, you got a glimpse at how phenomenal SALEM is front to back. Now that it's finally out you can easily see why. With M Mac and Emerson Brooks handling most of the production besides two tracks from Metcalfe and BatmanOnTheBeatz, there's no question Flex and everyone involved put their all into SALEM. Flex recruits DillanPonders, ANTHM, Allan Rayman, D-Sisive and Emerson Brooks, keeping the features to a minimum. Records that stand out on SALEM are one's like "The Wicked", "Build and Destroy", "Big Dreams", "War", "All I Knew", "Rolling Dice" and "The Great Escape" though those are just my personal favorites, the whole project is dope. The album being an ode to where Flex grew up and how he's moved on from there, SALEM is one everyone can relate to in a way if you're out chasing your dreams. Stream and download Flex The Antihero's latest gem SALEM after a little write up from Flex about the album. "SALEM is just an exit in Ajax where I previously lived before (I've been in Toronto for a minute now). A lot of the topics I found on the album had to deal with what I was surrounded by and what inspired my way of thinking. It was just a stretch that takes you from one end to the other. The trees on the cover symbolize the fields that are on the one side as you drive and also symbolic of a lot of the darkness I was in when working on this project."
