“I let you live in this town, don’t think I can’t ruin you.” – Funkmaster Flex
Hot 97’s DJ, Funkmaster Flex went on one of his infamous rants last night, but his tirade wasn’t directed at just any irrelevant no-namer. This time around, he saved some verbal venom for Jay Z!
According to Flex, Jay Z and the editorial staff at his Life + Times site allegedly asked for advice regarding his InFlexWeTrust app before releasing the Samsung-sponsored Magna Carta Holy Grail app in 2013. The notion that Jay Z and Samsung needed Funkmaster Flex’s digital expertise is quite impressionable but who are we to judge.
During his segment last night, Funk spent nearly 30 minutes rambling about Jay Z, Life + Times, mobile apps, the Dipset reunion, and the 40/40 Club.
“That website is trash by the way. I figured I’d say that trash so you take me serious on where I’m going. They do this interview after I drop my app, asking me a lot of key questions about apps – building apps, how, why, how’d you launch it? But all of that didn’t get put in the story though. But a lot of that information got put into that new Jay Z app. But I was good with that I ate that. I understood it. Everybody’s out here hustling…
“Fast forward to today. My assistant gets an email – “We would like to do a story about your involvement in the Dipset reunion” from Life+Times maga… What is it a site? Site’s trash. A bunch of dumb big pictures and no numbers. Y’all can’t move with me in this digital space….
“I’ve always been super neutral in this situation. But I don’t understand how somebody from that site can ask me about my involvement in the Dipset reunion. But when I used to go to 40/40, I was told not to play any Dipset records. I’m so confused.
“And I’m gonna tell you something about that 40/40 in Atlantic City. There was a security guard that came up to me and told me to change that record, because of my respect for Desiree I changed it. We was gonna wear you out in that club that night. Your whole security is my Tunnel security. I made them dudes rich.
“We were gonna press you that night. And just in case you’re feeling lucky, I’m back in Atlantic City this Sunday. You know who I’m talking to. You’re funny looking and you’re a clown. We were gonna take you down that night. You knew it. That’s why you were crying.”
To end his tirade, Flex finally dropped a semi threat, “Don’t play with me. Don’t play with me. Don’t play with me….I let you live in this town, don’t think I can’t ruin you.” *Drops bomb*
Wow. Gone too far.
