My homie Flex hit me up to let y’all know that he’s going on tour with Kosha Dillz on what he’s calling The Rappers Friends Tour.

If you don’t know, Flex has been on the DC hip-hop scene for a minute now, grinding for years now. His style is quintessentially old school hip-hop, with emphasis on rap battles and live shows over bullets and bling. This approach has gotten the dude honors from URB magazine as well as the Warped Tour and opened for such notables as KRS-One and the Wu-Tang Clan.

I’ve seen this dude battle at a street corner cypher and the dude is fierce, and he always brings his live shows to the next level. Flex is touring to promote his new solo LP He Was Like This When I Got Here, making stops around the southeast as well as Alaska. (Any Couch readers out there?) If he’s in your town, the performance is definitely worth checking out.

Flex will also be opening for Clipse on July 18th at Club Five.
