Flawless (Cody Colucci) and Roche (Rob Roche) make up the unit known as "Certified", the latest addition to Hamilton, Canada's underground hip hop scene.
Certified have a raw and visceral "Be Real" style which involves documenting their own life and times in there music. With these gritty slice's of life including coinciding births, deaths, and jail time, its a miracle that the guys managed to release anything.
Flawless grew up in the streets of Toronto. As a kid he moved from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, making it very easy to fall in with the wrong crowds and get into trouble with the law. Flawless could see the direction that his life was heading and he didnt like it, so he decided to make a change, which took him in Hamilton, Ontario. It was here that Flawless first met Roche, at a mutual friends party, in a freestyle battle.
The two freestyled for hours and became friends, and after talking it over at the next couple of parties, Certified was born.
