FLIP J HENDRIXS already has the underground music scene in a chokehold, now he’s climbing out the manhole headed for the top spot!
A rebel born in Harlem, USA (via 138th St. in Mitchell Projects) and raised in the South Bronx, FLIP has no problem standing up and standing out. His distinct musical sound is a beautiful combination of Hip-Hop, Pop, Jazz, Drill Rap, Caribbean vibes and R&B. “Basically I draw from all different genres of music. There’s no limit to my versatility. My style is unidentified. I’m different, that’s the difference.”
Oddly enough his music career began the day he buried his father. Needing to focus on something other than the difficulty of losing his loved one, FLIP sat down and conversed with his father’s mentor. “KEITH and I were chopping it up at the service, reminiscing about my Pops when he randomly asked me if I rapped. I was like, “Hell yeah I rap!”, and at that exact moment my dreams came alive! I hit the studio right after my Pop’s funeral service and never looked back.”
Five years later, we can see the progress FLIP’s laser focus has garnered him. He has a host of bangers streaming on your favorite music platforms, visuals available on his YouTube Channel and a new EP in the works. “I had to lock in on my music and start working towards my goals. No days off!”
When it comes to music and entertainment FLIP dabbles in a little bit of everything, He enjoys recording music, writing songs, creating beats and melodies and performing for the crowd. You’d be hard-pressed to find this ball of energy sitting still in any type of setting. “If I wasn’t rapping, I would probably be an extreme skateboarder who designs clothing and plays the guitar here and there. (Laughing) I love being active and doing creative and interesting things. I cannot be idle.”
After quietly observing the music scene, FLIP has seen and heard enough to know the pitfalls that come with a career in this industry, yet he is determined to become a success while staying true to himself. “There is some good, bad and ugly in this industry, like everything else in life. I want to keep it as real as possible. The music on my side of town is ok, but I’m a little bit tired of hearing it. The lack of individuality wears me out. As an artist I pride myself on being original. All of us artists can’t keep rapping about the same things. The people want different sounds and music that they can relate to.”
FLIP’s favorite artists include Lil Wayne and 50 CENT. He also has a fondness for New York’s 90’s Hip-Hop Era (which explains the authenticity in his style). I’m not sure most of today’s Rappers would’ve survived the 90’s when you actually had to have bars and a message. When asked to describe himself as a musician and why he chose his eccentric moniker, he broke down all of the different elements that make up the superstar persona of FLIP J HENDRIXS…
I am a rockstar. I am a chameleon.
I can blend in with any genre of music.
Smoove, sensitive, bad boy type. Unique fashion sense. Grown man vibes. Enjoys uplifting others and is not afraid to tell it like it is.
Very energetic, real active and animated. Brings a lot of energy with his skateboard, sporty vibes and bright colors.
A wise man once said, A self-aware man is a successful man and FLIP J HENDRIXS knows exactly who he is and what he wants. “I want the world, not just the streets. My wave is for the whole world to embrace, not just the block.”
