FUNK MASTER FLEX - BAKER BOYZ - POWER 106 FM LA 1994


FLEX IS A BEAST ON THE DECKS, AND STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE DJ'S OF ALL TIME. 1ST HEARD FLEX IN 91 WHEN HE DID A FEW MIXES FOR WESTWOOD JUST AS HOT97 CHANGED ITS PROGRAMING AND GOT HIM INVOLVED. AT THE TIME RON G AND DOO WOP WERE THE DUDES., BUT FLEX WAS COMING OUT HARD!!! (PAUSE) EVERYTIME HE CUT, HE HAD THE FUNK ,THE FLOW AND THE AGGRESSION. YOU COULD TELL WHEN HE WAS ON THE SET HE CAME TO TEAR IT DOWN....

YO ONE TAPE I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED IS FUNK MASTER FLEX LIVE @ SUBTERANIA IN LONDON AUG 94. THAT WAS ONE CRAZY NIGHT. FUNK FLEX 1ST TIME IN LONDON, THE GRAVEDIGGERS.AND STRANGELY ENOUGH SHAQUILLE O NEAL!!! BACK IN 94, HIP HOP JAMS WERE KINDA CRAZY, AND ANYTHING COULD POP OFF, WHETHER IT BE A SHOOTING, STABBING, OR JUST PLANE GOOD OLD SKOOL ROBBERY..

THE CLUB WAS HOT AS HELL AND FLEX CAME ON AFTER RZA, PRINCE PAUL , AND THE REST OF THE GRAVEDIGGERS....THE WHOLLE CLUB WENT CRAZY...WHEN I SAY CRAZY I MEAN CRAZY... RZA WAS ON MY RADIO SHOW LAST DECEMBER AND WE WERE BOTH REMINISCEIN ABOUT WHEN FLEX THREW ON ONYX'S THROW YOUR GUNS IN THE AIR....WHEN HE DID THAT ALL HELL BROKE OUT...A KID TO THE RIGHT OF ME GOT BOTTLED... RANDOM FIGHTS STARTED BREAKING OUT, THEN SHAQ GOT INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE MADNESS... .PICKED UP THIS KID AND THREW HIM.....SHAQ IS A GIANT... A VERY BIG DUDE...HE PICKED UP THIS POOR UNSUSPECTING KID AND THREW HIM LIKE HE WAS A RAG DOLL....THIS KID FLEW ABOUT 10 FEET AND LANDED ON THE FLOOR.

THAT NIGHT WESTWOOD INTRODUCED ME TO FLEX WHO WAS MAD KOOL AND HE GAVE ME A FREE MIX TAPE WHICH MADE MY DAY AS I THOUGHT I JUST MET GOD...I ALSO REMEMBER SKOOLIN BIG KAP ABOUT SELLING MIXTAPES...HE WAS ASKING ME WHY KNOW ONE WAS BUYING THE FLEX MIXTAPES HE WAS SELLING AT HE GIG??? I ASKED HIM "HOW MUCH ARE YOU SELLING THEM FOR?? HE SAID "TEN POUND" I WAS LIKE RAA THATS WAY TOO MUCH,DROP IT TO £5 AND YOU'LL SELL THEM ALL....BUMPED INTO HIM LATER AND HE SOLD ALL 100 TAPES HE HAD....

SO THIS TAPE IS ROUND THE SAME TIME, SEPT 94 I THINK, AND THIS IS ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITE FLEX TAPES AND ITS NEVER BEEN POSTED BEFORE AS FAR AS I KNOW...SHOOK ONES...SUPA STARR,PETE ROCK RMX OF JERU'S CANT STOP THE PROPHET ARE ALL ON THERE...ALSO HE DROPS BIGGIES WHO SHOT YA......HE PLAYS THE ORIGINAL VERSION WHEN IT WAS JUST A VERSE............DOWNLOAD THIS HERE AND SHOUT ME BACK...
