Aston George Taylor Jr. (born August 5, 1968), better known as Funkmaster Flex is an American hip hop DJ, rapper, musician and producer on New York City's Hot 97 radio station, described by ''The Rough Guide to Hip-Hop'' as "one of the biggest players in the game". He plays hip-hop, R&B, old school, back in the day, 80's, reggae, dancehall and reggaeton.
Taylor was born in the Bronx, New York, his father a sound system DJ. He got a job at age 19 working for KISS-FM DJ Chuck Chillout as a record boy. When Chillout was late for a show once, Taylor was allowed to stand in, launching his radio career. He moved on to work for WBLS, while at the same time building a reputation as a New York club DJ, getting his big break when HOT 97 took him on. By the mid-1990s, his show was being aired nationally, and he was signed by Loud Records for a series of ''60 Minutes of Funk'' mixtapes, the first of their kind to be released by a major record label. On ''The Tunnel'' (1999, Def Jam), Flex managed to get some of the biggest names in hip hop to contribute, including Dr.Dre, Nas, Jay-Z, DMX, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J, Method Man, and 50 Cent
Funkmaster Flex sets trends. His name is known around the world and for more than a decade now, Funkmaster Flex has reigned as America's No. 1 radio personality, reaching more than 2 million listeners a week on Hot 97.
Funkmaster Flex has developed his own mini-empire of car-customizing television programming. Flex first experienced television success with the runaway success of his Spike TV show, "Ride with Funkmaster Flex." Flex then went to ESPN with his television shows "All Muscle with Funkmaster Flex" and "Car Wars with Funkmaster Flex." In "All Muscle with Funkmaster Flex" he can be seen interviewing and customizing the cars of leading sports celebrities from the NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball and the world of Hip-Hop.
In 2009, Flex is back at Spike TV and reigns supreme with his new show, “Fast Machines with Funkmaster Flex” produced by MTE. The show focuses on Flex creating the latest in customizations on today's hottest new cars as well as his signature classic car customizations. The series includes many popular celebrities including Dale Earnhardt Jr., LL Cool J, Danica Patrick, 50 Cent, Terrell Owens, T-Pain, Jermaine Dupree, Fat Joe and Jim Jones.
Funkmaster Flex's love affair with automobiles is no on-air gimmick. He is a true custom car fanatic. So much so, The New York Times recently dubbed him the "evangelist of hip hop car culture." He founded Team Baurtwell, the highest profile custom-car club around with members like Shaquille O'Neil, musicians Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, Mariah Carey, NASCAR Drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick, and professional baseball athletes Jason Giambi and Manny Ramirez.
The bottom line is this: Funkmaster Flex has an enormous presence with today's most desirable target audience. When he plays a record, it becomes a hit. When he sponsors an event, it sets attendance records. When he markets a product, people buy it.
Flex is known, respected, but most importantly…he is trusted. Funkmaster Flex offers something that truly can not be bought. He has credibility, and that makes him...
