Flex The Antihero – The Becoming (DJBooth Freestyle) [Audio]

Toronto, ON – SmashMouth Entertainment’s own Flex The Antihero (who you may also know as one half of The Antiheroes duo) recently got some serious shine on DJBooth’s recently re-launched Freestyle Series. Flex dropped a dope freestyle entitled “The Becoming” (over top of production courtesy of Flex’s fellow SmashMouthian, TallBoy).

Flex hits us with his flow. And it’s an efficient flow. By that, I mean he doesn’t waste his words and he manages to compress a lot of content into a limited number of bars. And he’s hungry; really hungry: “All of these artists/ Empty stomachs/ Sh*t/ I’m one of them, too/ But I see it so different.”

The original DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from Feb. 2009 through Jun. 2011. You may recall the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller amongst the 250 entries. So now the series is back. And Flex gets flexing as the 20th entrant in the new series. Flex recently launched his debut album entitled SALEM, and is already working on a new solo EP and a collaborative EP with Allan Rayman. So while you wait on those, peep Flex’s freestyle over at DJBooth. And then head over here to cop a download of SALEM. Also, shout-out to Fred Lozano on the cover art.
