Sometimes it's okay to not want to be saved. Sometimes it's important to get through the grit alone to get to the gold. Ahead of the release of his sophomore album Born Rebels, Toronto spitter Flex The Antihero has documented his path through one of the most difficult points in his life, churning aggression into ripe genre-blending rap, with the help of long-time collaborator and producer, Emerson Brooks.

"Pray' was a record that I figured would immediately be seen as blasphemous, but in the context of the album you will get it," Flex says. "Basically, I was at a point where I was exhausted with everything. I dealt with a loss of a friend, I was a diving head first into my vices and allowed myself to become super distant from anyone, and anything. I don’t think I was a pleasure to be around at that point. It is essentially saying let me see what becomes of just letting it all go...don't save me. Let's just see what happens if I let myself go completely mad…let me feel everything, because I may not be here tomorrow." Listen to 'Pray' below and keep posted for Born Rebels.
