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.”

People Under The Stairs at Fortune Sound Club (Live) [Review]


Vancouver, BC – Timbre Concerts brought Thes One and Double K of People Under The Stairs to Vancity’s Fortune Sound last week while on tour to promote their most recent release, 12 Step Program.

The Cali underground duo tried to bring a real house party, old school hip-hop vibe to the room and the energy of the crowd from the jump proved their success in doing so. “Trippin’ At The Disco” from Carried Away got Thes on top of the crowd, literally crowd surfing by then end of the evening’s second song. The party had begun.

Remember that video for “Beer” where the brews were poured all over heads and body parts? You best believe that actually happens at a real life PUTS show. Thes One got that full Heineken drippin’ down the dome while rockin’ the mic for the most appropriate party cut in the PUTS library.

“Acid Raindrops” and “San Francisco Knights” had adoring fans singing along to every word as Double K worked his magic on the ones and twos. “Hang Loose ” had the inevitable “all ladies on stage” command to accompany and the evening came to a close. “This is the best Canadian show in…I don’t know how long. Probably since the last time we were in Vancouver” Thes stated to a satisfied crowd. Check out the full photo gallery below.
