The catchy beat was recorded recently by Flex Mathews. Our former product manager Shaya met Flex in 2010 at the South By Southwest conference in Austin, Texas. At the conference, Flex and his partner-in-crime, Kosha Dillz, started a freestyle rap after a panel discussion. Shaya took notice of the talent and asked if she could record the two freestyling the next day.
“I got the official idea to write the Answers.com song after seeing the video that Shaya made,” he said.
Turns out Flex was already a fan of Answers.
“I discovered Answers.com about four years ago when I worked a desk job at Walter Reed Army Medical Center,” he said. “I just used the site to look up the definitions of certain words, but didn’t start to use it as a actual information site until about two years ago. I have never gotten any wrong information from Answers.com, so I guess you can say that is what I like the most about the site. I really enjoy the staff as well.”
Well, we really enjoy y-0-u, Flex. We’re so honored to have you record a rap for us!
Pop in your headphones and listen to it right now:
