Flex The Antihero teams up with Roshin to introduce us to the “Kool Aid Man”
Toronto, ON – He came back from his musical hiatus this year, and now Flex The Antihero returns with this fresh collaborative track with Roshin titled “Kool Aid Man.”
This track comes to us off Flex’s forthcoming sophomore LP release, and features rising Toronto beatmaster Fameless on the production. The song was mixed by Krinny, a new SMMG affiliate who’s been making his mark on a lot of recent SmashMouth releases.
Here’s the deal – If you took all the character traits of the “Kool Aid Man” mascot and flipped them into adult behavioural tendencies, you’d find that the Kool Aid Man you grew up with is actually basically just a hungry rapper/ hustler on the come-up: “Breaking these walls down/ I’m finding my way/ That sugar/ That powder/ That water/ You stir it/ You sell outside of your place / That’s three or four dollars/ But I’m getting money now/ Awe yeah.”
This collaboration is such a good look for both Flex and Roshin. Their vocal ranges are completely different so when they trade lines (and respond to each other’s bars with “AWE YEAH!”), it adds another layer to the track. Flex has a very high nasal-y delivery while Roshin has this lower pitched gravelly tone. So their line trade-offs are that much more noticeable. I always love when guys trade off lines instead of verses. It’s not something that’s done as often. But when it happens, it’s amazing.
