Aston George Taylor Jr. A.KA.

He is featured on ESPN NFL 2K5 and Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned.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 carrying crates. 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.
