Who is Flex Cooper
I’m pretty straight forward guy and you can tell the type of person I am from jump. I would say people think I’m a nice guy or soft. however when things get grimy I’m the first 1090 . Don’t be surprised I like to be underestimated . When I lived in Cali I learned a lot about my self and got into hood affairs, however I learned to focus all that energy on the music , & not the streets or beef. I joke around a lot , and my friends mean a lot to me . I couldn’t have made it this far without them.

My favorite piece of work that I created has to be Creativ$oulz, which was my very first mix tape . I feel like it could have been an album but I didn’t wanna get sued, to do some samples and an industry beat. (Creativ$oulz) A mixture of conscious rap and comedy with the hilarious skits that we added from 2009 .It was back when life was all fun a games . It’s just the transition from Queens NewYork to The Bay Area of California .
