First off, I wanna give props due where props is certainly due. The homies over at TGLR put me onto this ish like last week, but this morning I had some info and a press release in the Monster’s mailbox, so we’re going to give it a post as well, because this new app looks ill. Basically, Flyp’t will allow people to customize and remix their music, by adding dope effects to songs or triggering lyrical phrases over instrumentals like you are scratching it up in the club. Flypt.net will be a social network where you can check out other people’s mixes. Check out a quick tutorial on Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” below:
