Audio: Funkmaster Flex Roasts Jay-Z Over Dipset Article On His Life+Times Website
Funkmaster Flex was feeling some type of way recently about a few of Jay Z’s brands. The Hot 97 DJ went on a bomb-filled rant about his dealing with Hov’s Life+Times website and 40/40 Club. It appears the tirade was an extension of the longstanding feud between Jay and members of Dipset.
Flex had this to rant about:
“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.”
Flex goes on to accuse Life+Times’ request for an interview as a ploy to find out Dipset’s next move. He also says Jay’s Samsung “Magna Carta” app may not have crashed if they actually used the information he gave about his own application. Flex then repeats “Don’t play with me,” and says “I let you live in this town, don’t think I can’t ruin you.”
