Complex Says: While his show does have a good-sized following, his biggest influence on the industry came in the form of his work on aftermarket products for Ford. Let's face it, most young people don't talk about engine displacement and axle ratios anymore. Graphics kits on a Fiesta can help move some cars, though. Ford's image is getting younger, and Funkmaster Flex has a lot to do with that.
