First off, how come there is an apostrophe after “Flexin” but not before “Em?” Is the whole song subliminally aimed at Eminem and I just missed it the first couple of listens?
Whenever I see the words “flex” or “flexin” I instantly compare the song to “No Flex Zone.” In other words, I assume that each of these will be way better. I actually find Flexin’ On Em a solid Hip-Hop track despite a couple of shakey names (notably Future and Meek Mill).
I cannot decide if I actually like Meek Mill’s verse. When I first heard the hook I was a bit put off, as it is annoyingly repetitive. The fact that Meek Mill kept me around meant he did something right, despite hearing many complaints about his verse. Future was also on point with his flow, though I have to admit his voice induces an immediate throat-clear for me. T.I. sounded back in shape after a few inconsistent and disappointing months (save for announcing the dual album with Jeezy, that was pretty rad news). And we all know how I feel about Stuey Rock on the hook, who has virtually been silent up until now.
DJ Holiday keeps the track relevant and provides an appropriate beat, and there are not really any bad verses on this track. Overall, I would rate it at 9/10. If you are a Hip-Hop/Rap fan, you should go over to HotNewHipHop.com and give the song a listen:
