San Antonio, Texas rapper Blake is well known for his viral video "Flexin" which broke 1 million views on Youtube. The video has grown to over 14 million views and Blake is now signed to Atlantic records. Blake has been on the move working hard and hitting the road with performances at the Paper Tiger and Botanica at Six-Flags to name a couple from earlier this year.

Blake has already accomplished some major things in his music career and when asked "what's the most memorable moment in your career so far?" Blake's answer was simple "standing in front of a crowd and the crowd knows every single song." With him being in the top 25 Texas rappers list and his mixtape dropping September 28th. I'm sure he has a lot of great things in store for his fans.
Make sure to grab a ticket the next time he's in your city because any show is expected to bring the "Turn Up."
