Funkmaster Flex Blasts Jay Z’s ‘Trash’ Life + Times Website
Funkmaster Flex has internet beef -- literally. The legendary Hot 97 DJ blasted the people behind Jay Z's Life + Times website on the radio yesterday (Jan. 15) for stealing his ideas and referred to it as "trash."
Flex claims that a writer from Life + Times contacted him in the past to write a story about his digital app, only to give those same ideas to Jay Z for his Samsung app. "First of all, I salute the young man who wrote the story," Flex prefaces in the rant, which begins around the 10:56-mark in the clip below. "I appreciate the love but brah... I peeped back then when they were using a writer from the outside that did not work for the magazine, excuse me, the website. And that website is trash, by the way."
Flex claims that he was fine with Jay Z stealing his ideas, chalking it up to the game. "I was good with that. I ate that," Flex says. "Everybody's out here hustling."
Given the shaky past, Flex then says what really burned him is when a writer contacted him to be interviewed for a story about Dipset's reunion. Flex was shocked because he was apparently expressly told not to play any Dipset records at Jay Z's 40/40 Club. “I’ve always been super neutral in this situation, super,” said Flex. “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 the 40/40, I was told not to play any Dipset records. I’m so confused.”
He then says, "Don't think I can't ruin you," which appears to be a direct diss at Jay. Hear Flex's rant against the site below.
