Flip’s first video, in which he was featured, was “Pump It Up” by Joe Buddens in 2003. Flip started rapping in 2005, releasing hilarious song with funny lyrics; in certain circle he was labeled a young, black, Weird Al Yankovic and his song caused a local buzz. During this period he met Stack Bundles (Queens up and coming Hip Hop Artist) and his friend Bynoe in North Carolina while being on tour with G-Units Mazarati Fox, previously know as Million Dollar Fox. Stack recognized Flip from his songs and they become cool, instant friends, and the rest as they say is HISTORY.

Flip became a part of Stack and Bynoe click and they gave Flip the drive to rap. Their friendship became solid when Flip held Stack down or had his back during an altercation. Seeing Flip’s loyalty Stack brought Flip into the Hip Hop family and decided that Flip should join and ride the Riot Squad Wave.

Flip started rolling with Stack Bundles and Bynoe. In believing in Flip’s talent, they convinced Flip to take rap more seriously and insisted he maintain his unique talent and swag. Flip rapped in two Riot Squad mix-tapes – “Riot’s That Gang 2” and “Riot or Diet” – making him an official Riot Squad Artist.

Flip’s first independent song was his remix of the Chicken Noodle soup, song, but instead of “soda” on the side; Flip use the controversial term “HAMMER on the side”; radio by the Super-engineer Poou at the Black-house Studio in the Coliseum on Jamaica Avenue. In fact, the relationship between Poou and Flip has so evolved that Poou is currently one of Flip’s Manager. Flip’s Chicken Noodle soup version received crazy, club feedback for his version and the song was on demand from DJs all over the tri-boro. As a result, Flip decided to produce as well as play the lead role in the video of the song, in his home town Queens; currently the video has more than a million views.

While getting hood love, love from the streets, Flip was introduced to an up and coming Producer from Finland, Skem of Big Wing Production. The name Skem and the fact that Skem originated from Finland added a unique sound to Flip’s already unique style. Together they recorded hits, after hits. One of their most recognized hits is “Queenz Steps”, which is played all over clubs in Queens.

Queenz Step had even a greater buzz than Flip’s Chicken Noodle Soup and it caught the ears of Queens up and coming DJs by the name of DJ Name, DJ G&Money. DJ G&Money, in his own right, is known all over Queenz, as one of the #1 DJs in Queens. After working together, Flip had made G&Money his Official DJ.

The great response of Queenz Step has lead to Flip’s third video “LockIn” on March 15, 2007. The video was directed by the world renowned Hip Hop Film Director Scenario; known for his works with 50 Cent, Wu Tang and Fabulous Swizz Beatz. The video itself was a huge event in which hundreds of teenagers, all over the tri-boro, turned out to participate. Flip is well known and loved in Queens.

In June 2007, an act of violence took the life of Stack Bundles and Flip lost his mentor and close friend. For a while Flip stop rapping and wanted to hang it up but Bynoe, Skem, Scenario, Flip’s Mom and Dad, and many of his friends encourage Flip to keep rapping, doing it in the name of Stack Bundles in order to keep Stack’s memory alive; to fore fill Stacks dream of placing Queens on the Hip Hop map; like no other artist; doing it with class and style – no Gangsta “killing” rap just party hype. Nothing against “Gangsta” rap but working to prove that “Black – Young – Thugs” can party too.

Flip and Skem went back to work and worked on the now “infamous” Sidekick Anthem, the song is a smash hit. Flip’s Partner, Marie Delus, had such faith in the song that she sent the song to T-Mobile marketing and Ms. Delus received an email from one of the Vice President of T-Mobile congratulating Flip and wishing Flip luck with his future career. The hype of the Sidekick Anthem lead to Flip’s third video. More than 300 hundred teens attended the video shoot. Flip place the video on “Youtube”, which got him a buzz all over the Tri-state area.

Flip is taking the “Rap Game” serious early, so the sensation behind the music is not superficial, it is earned. He is making it do what it do; changing the face of hip-hop from the bottom up. Flip has successfully laid a firm foundation, especially with the younger crowd. He is becoming a trend setter, a leader in his own right. Doing what he does best, which is making people feel good with his music while making history.
