NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Legendary rapper Funkmaster Flex can drop the suspension on cars just as well as he drops beats.

He’s tricking out cars on his new reality series, Funk Flex Full Throttle, premiering this Sunday (May 2) on MTV2.

The MC says he’s excited to share the work he does before going into the studio with the world, and with his celebrity clientele popping in, it should be interesting.

Big names like Diddy, Lil’ Kim, Ludacris, and Drake will stop by to get the Flex treatment on their rides.

Pimping out cars has been a lifelong hobby for Flex, who turned his passion into a business eight years ago by opening his own garage.

Viewers will see him run the shop, design cars, and sometimes even roll up his sleeves and get under the hood.

He’s also teaming up with the Ford Motor Company to give away a personally customized Ford Fiesta to one lucky driver.
