Funkmaster Flex and Snoop Dogg may be known for their shared passion for music, but it was cars that brought them together on Tuesday (November 2).
As has been the case for the last several years, Flex was out in Las Vegas earlier this week at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show. This time around, the Hot 97 DJ unveiled a few specialty whips—including a 2011 Ford Explorer and a 2011 Ford Mustang, the latter made especially for Snoop.
The exterior of Snoop’s tricked out Mustang features smoked tail lights customized by Flex’s own Team Baurtwell, as well as Funkmaster Flex logos and a 3dCarbon body kit and a three-piece billet wheels. The sleek car also flaunts a Steeda lowering kit, sway bars and springs, and Baer breaks to ensure that no matter how fast Snoop goes, he’ll be able to stop on a dime.
Meanwhile, the Explorer is a new-age SUV, complete with a Sony Xplod audio system, three-piece forged billet wheels, two-tone leather seats and 24-inch Cooper tires. The Flex Ford Explorer was also designed by Team Baurtwell.
Both Flex and Snoop signed autographs for fans at the Ford booth, and Flex took time out to shoot a segment for his show on MTV.
Funkmaster Flex has had a relationship with Ford that dates back to 2005 and has customized multiple vehicles in the half-decade since. —Adam Fleischer
