New York-based DJ, hip hop artist, and music producer who is perhaps most well known for his association with New York City's Hot 97 radio station. He also created the TV series Ride with Funkmaster Flex and Funk Flex Full Throttle.
In his teens, he started working as a nightclub DJ and a Kiss-FM (WRKS 98.7) radio personality. In his early twenties, he recorded a certified Gold mixtape series titled 60 Minutes of Funk.
An automobile enthusiast, he established the popular Funkmaster Flex Custom Car & Bike Show Tour.
He was born Aston George Taylor, Jr. to DJ and sound engineer Aston George Taylor, Sr. He was previously married to ex-wife Monica Joseph; he fathered a son named Dante through his past relationship with Haydee Diaz.
Funkmaster Flex's critical commentary about the deceased rapper Tupac Shakur inspired The Outlawz to "diss" the DJ in their track "Warning Shots."
