In a town known for its country, rock, and blues music, hip-hop has often struggled to find its place in the Austin music scene. A struggle that Austin native John David Flores Jr. is intimately familiar with and determined to overcome. And he is doing it. With a shrill, rapid-fire lyrical style, and larger than life personality Flores a.k.a Sertified, demands attention. SERTIFIED stopped by the studio last week to perform some music from his new album, Taking Risks, for KUTX’s Saturday night hip-hop show, The Breaks. Listen to that session at the bottom of the post or peep the videos for songs “Still In Line” and “On The Go”.
