Drake Fires Shots At Hot 97 Over Eminem Diss Rumor During MSG Show. Reignites Funkmaster Flex Beef. Ebro, Peter Rosenberg & Flex Respond (Video)

Since July 2015, when Hot 97 radio host Funkmaster Flex played reference tracks of Drake songs recorded by Quentin Miller, the DJ and rapper have no seen eye-to-eye.

During Drizzy's show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, August 4, he took shots at Hot 97 and Flex

“They tellin’ lies on Hot 97, that’s how it goes / I told ’em fire Funk Flex, then I’ll come and do your show / Plus, me and Kanye, we just left out the studio / My first night in the Garden, I’m feeling like D. Rose," the OVO Sound boss rapped to the crowd.

On Saturday, August 6, Flex responded via a lengthy on air rant. Listen to it up top and read highlights from it courtesy of Billboard below.

"I got a few stories to tell tonight. I don't know which one I'm gonna tell first," Funkmaster Flex started.

"First of all, Drake, I'm not really worried about you making me lose my job,” Flex said. “70% of your fans wear high heels. The other 30% are guys who wear sandals. I'm not concerned about you."

“I don't know if you noticed, but everything is built on top 5,” he said.

The DJ actually went on to compliment Drake’s talent as an entertainer, saying he makes “great music” and has “great shows” – but alleged that the rapper is not worthy of being in that “top 5" in hip-hop.

"If you have help on your music and on your bars to compete for that top 5 movement, that is an issue to me,” Flex said before launching into several supposed stories about Drake, some highlighted below.

On Drake’s Hot 97 freestyle:

"I’ve never commented on that freestyle, never talked about it,” Flex began of afreestyle Drake did in 2009 while looking at a BlackBerry.

 

"That freestyle, we rehearsed it first in this room. He had the BlackBerry out ... I had no idea he was gonna leave the Blackberry out," he said.

The DJ alleged that Drake and his team asked Hot 97 to put a video of the freestyle out, despite the fact that he was reading off of a BlackBerry, because they wanted to use its release as proof that he writes his own raps.

“They help circulate the video. I'm wondering, why would they put that out? You told Zane Lowe you didn't know the video was coming out. You calling a lot of people liars. Okay. Video comes out, everybody jokes on him on it, but everyone says, 'Yo, but he got bars.' ... You wanted people to think that you write your bars. You wanted people to think on that BlackBerry, those were yours, that you wrote that. You wanted to solidify that because you knew this day would come when people might see or question your pen."

 

On Meek Mill’s accusation that Drake uses ghostwriters:

“When those reference tracks came out ... you had Quentin Miller put out a press release,” Funkmaster Flex said, referring to alleged reference tracks by Miller that he played on-air at Hot 97, as well as a Tumblr post Miller had posted at the time, in which he denied being a ghostwriter for Drake. (“I watched this man piece together words in front of me… I watched him write/ replace bars 2- 3 at a time on 6pm in NY.. I witnessed him light up, go in and freestyle madonna,” Miller wrote of his time in the studio with Drake.)

 

To that, Flex said, “Let me tell you something for people who don’t understand the studio, 'cause I do. No rapper has a guy that could be or people thinkin' is writing for him in the studio directing you or standing next to you while you're in the booth unless he's writing the lyrics ... making sure the delivery's right.”

The DJ suggested that Drake should have admitted he had “a couple people who helped me with a couple things” rather than try to “hide it.”

“Yes, he writes, but there's a couple key things he didn't, and that's just the way it is,” he clarified, just before wishing Drake well at his Saturday night concert.

“My boss can't tell me to play your records. I play them because the people enjoy them, and I enjoy them as well,” he said.

Petition Started Calling For Funkmaster Flex To Leave Hot 97

A rumor started by Ebro Darden of Hot 97 has Drake fired up.

Earlier this week Ebro said that during a conversation with Drizzy, the rapper told him that he had a response ready if Eminem came at him with a diss song.

However, there is no Eminem diss coming and the conversation Ebro referred to never happened.

Ebro later admitted that it was a joke, but during Drake's show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, August 4, the rapper let it be known that he didn't appreciate what was said and reignited his beef with Funkmaster Flex.

“They tellin’ lies on Hot 97, that’s how it goes / I told ’em fire Funk Flex, then I’ll come and do your show / Plus, me and Kanye, we just left out the studio / My first night in the Garden, I’m feeling like D. Rose," the OVO Sound boss rapped to the crowd.

Flex, Ebro and Peter Rosenberg responded via Twitter.

"Hahahaha!!! 7pm Sat I got a story to tell! @Drake u gonna learn!" Flex wrote.

Ebro quipped, "We built him... He loves us."

Rosenberg added that the station has always been there for Drizzy, "I don't approve of drake saying f*c* hot 97 cuz we do generally support the hell out of him .. But I Def understand him hating some people."

Drake's beef with Flex dates back to July 2015, when the rapper was battling withMeek Mill.

Meek accused Drake of using a ghostwriter on their "R.I.C.O." collaboration.

Flex then released several reference tracks from the "One Dance" hit maker's alleged ghostwriter, Quentin Miller, including the songs “Know Yourself,” “Used To” and “R.I.C.O.” 

Flex went on to diss Drake publicly at a Jadakiss show in November when he said "F*c* that Canadian n!gga," while behind the turntables.

Om Friday, August 5, Ebro, Laura Stylez and Rosenberg discussed the situation on air. Check that out below.

What's your take on all of this?

Charlamagne Tha God Reads Funkmaster Flex's Eulogy For Jay Z, Drake & Meek Mill Mess. Gives Him The 'Donkey Of The Day' (Audio)

Whether you love him or hate him, you have to admit that Funkmaster Flex is a legend in the game. However, this has been a week he would like to forget.

The Hot 97 DJ promised to deliver a Meek Mill diss record going at Drake on Monday, July 27, but for whatever reason it didn't happen.

One fan, Azeem Khan, has started a petition on Change.org calling for Flex's resignation.

There has always been word that DJ Funk Funkmaster Flex was not someone who was willing to give up his position at Hot 97 for his slot. Despite constant critiques from everywhere for the old man to step down, and give the younger people a shot he decided to stay where he was. Last year Dame Dash was at the forefront of the movement saying that Funk Flex really needs to just leave. Well, today was the last straw. This fraud of a DJ decided to lie to everyone for ratings and downloads of the Hot 97 app that Meek Mill would be on tonight to release a diss track to Drake to no avail. No one has given Hot 97 two hours of listening time since Biggie was alive, and it's a crime to have taken that from us. The people have spoken and it is time for Funk Flex to step down. 

Khan spoke with AllHipHop to explain the reason he wants the DJ to exit his position.

“It’s one thing to be wrong by mistake, but he’s been gassing up this beef like no other. Everything is about clicks. This was straight up lying though. He’s needed to step down for a while now. I didn’t realize it would blow like this, but he should at least see what the fans really want. And that’s to not be lied to,” Khan told AllHipHop. “Everyone was tuned in, and he gave us the best pump fake since Michael Jordan in the 98 Finals. His site already picked it up, and he IG’d it. That just further shows he thinks he’s really just above everyone else. And he’s not.”

So far the petition has 9,108 signatures.

=======================================================================================

Power 105.1's Charlamagne Tha God went all the way in on Funkmaster Flex as he gave the Hot 97 DJ the Donkey of the Day for Tuesday, July 28.

Charlamagne read Flex's eulogy and said his career is over for failing to deliver a new diss song from Meek Mill on Monday, July 27, not coming through with the rest of Drake's reference tracks and his beef with Jay Z.
