The whole InFlexWeTrust family wants to send a huge happy birthday shout out to one of MY personal favorite rappers, Redman!

46 years ago today, we lost one of the most influential leaders in the Civil Rights movement that helped paved the way for people of all races to get along and live side-by-side today. On April 4th, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. His legacy will always and forever live on. Watch his legendary “I Have A Dream” speech in honor of his life below. Rest In Peace, MLK!
Some rappers make music, and others make classics that will continue to get played five years, ten years, twenty years, and so on after it has been put out. Notorious B.I.G. was one of those artists that made timeless tracks that will be played forever. Exactly 17 years ago today on March 25, 1997, Biggie’s second and final studio album entitled “Life After Death” was released just a few weeks after his fatal last day on March 9th. When thinking about a good definition for “hip-hop,” this simply legendary double-disc album is the perfect thing to define the genre of music as a whole. Christopher Wallace will continue to go down in history as one of the top dawgs to ever do this rap thing, making it on almost everyone’s “Top 5 Dead or Alive” lists. Check out REVOLT TV’s tribute to the influential rapper below. RIP Big.
The IFWT team would like to send out condolences to Snoop Dogg, Daz Dilinger, and the rest of their family as they mourn the passing of, Uncle JuneBug.

As soon as you hear the voice, there’s an automatic recognition that goes off. The voice-over for movies-trailers such as Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Meet the Parents and Lethal Weapon, Harold “Hal” Douglas passed away March 7. Check out the jump for more.
As we all know, March 9th marks the anniversary of the tragic passing of who can only be described as Hip-Hop’s greatest MC, Notorious B.I.G. This year makes it 17 years since rap lost a legend. His close friend and comrade DJ Mister Cee, who was very instrumental in introducing to the masses, gives us a special edition of his Throwback At Noon to commemorate the life and times of the Notorious one. Be advised, DJ Mister will not be on air tomorrow so he is giving us one of his most monumental and memorable Biggie tribute mixes from the year 2012. Check out the mix below the jump and make sure to download on the DJFunkFlexApp. R.I.P. Big!
