Elston Flippies is currently signed with Dragonskull Records, a label based in Cape Town, South Africa
Elston Flippies was born on the 25 January 1989. Elston Flippies says: “Due to the circumstances I endured in life, I was forced to turn to the wrong side of the law at a very young age [teenage years]. I spent some serious time in prison and my life was changing for the worst. I felt alone because I did not get the necessary support I required.
After being released from prison I started selling illegal substances such as weed, ice [crystal meth] and became relative to the gangsterism trade . I allowed myself to turn to more rebellious acts and activities adding to my already [bad] habits. It is only by the grace of God that I was enabled to stay sane and aware of my true being.
Realizing I need major help I went to a recommended person who was able to help me. He referred me to an all Boys Children's home [HIGHWAY HOME] not too far off the West Coast/Atlantis and that’s when things took a turn for the good and the greater cause in my life.
I'm currently producing my first ever album that will feature some of the deepest and greatest songs I've written thus far. I am currently signed with Obiso Production and is part of a youth movement called Rebel Records who keeps shows in disadvantage communities to motivate and inspire our youth.
My main goal is to educate and nurture the youth musically so that they can prosper musically and both in their personal lives.”
