Singing careerEdit

After a few years, Ortiz became known as Ñengo Flow. His first work as an artist was to release a mixtape with colleagues and friends. He then released his first studio album Flow Callejero in 2005. He continued to release mixtapes including El Combo Que No Se Deja in 2007 and La Verdadera Calle in 2010. He also appeared on various reggaetón compilation albums including Los Anormales (2004), Sangre Nueva (2005) and DJ Joe – Abusando del Género (2006). In 2011, he launched his álbums Real G4 Life and in 2012 Real G4 Life 2 as well as Real G4 Life 2.5. Real G4 Life 2 reached number 75 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart while the 2.5 edition reached number 61 on the same chart.[3] Also in 2012, he appeared on various artists' albums, including Ivy Queen's Musa while also providing uncredited vocals to the song "La Killer".[4][5][6]

Ñengo Flow's Real G4 Life concert was nominated for Concert of the Year by the Tu Música Urban Awards in 2019.[7]

In early-2018, Ñengo Flow was denied entry into Chile, where he was scheduled to perform a concert, because of a pending legal case- his case related to his arrest in 2017 when police K-9 smelled and police found an ounce of marijuana in his vehicle.[8] [9]
