Talib Kweli’s new album, “Prisoner Of Conciousness” is coming soon. To help promote the album, Kweli stopped by the Funkmaster Flex show recently. While there, of course he dropped some bars. Check out Kweli’s freestyle.
Almost like a precursor to what was announced later, XXL 2013 freshman School Boy Q stopped by the Funkmaster Flex show in NYC to do a quick freestyle over some classic hip-hop beats.
Last night in NYC, all the thugs came out to see their hood hero’s the Dipset reunite for one big show! Hosted by Funkmaster Flex, Cam, Juelz, Jim Jones, Freaky Zeeky and the rest of the gang gathered on stage (all at the same time it seemed) to give the fans what they want. Special guests Lloyd Banks and Waka Flocka also came out to help celebrate. One time for the Dips!
Funkmaster Flex is certainly a pro when it comes to courting attention. The legendary Dj has stepped up announcing that he would referee a possible battle between Meek Mill and Cassidy. Now, no one has actually asked him to do it yet, but that hasn’t stopped Flex from putting it out there. Flex said on his show last night,
“I listened to both of those. Hard. Cassidy’s is clever, more clever in terms of the writing, the talking back and forth, Cassidy doing another voice. I think that’s super clever. A little more clever than Meek’s,” Flex said. “Keeping it a hundred, the Cassidy beat was trash. But lyrically, it’s tough. The back and forth, the cleverness of it, I like it. Meek’s? The beat’s tough. The lyrics are tough too but I don’t, you know, I don’t think that it’s settled yet. I don’t think it’s settled yet. There’s a lot being said here. Or they could just leave it, in a way — I don’t think they should run into each other anywhere. [laughs] I don’t think so. That would be better not to happen. Nah, I don’t even think on their part, I just think it’s too much, too much. Really it’s too much.”

– — – Lupe Fiasco stopped by New York’s Hot 97 station to sit down with Funkmaster Flex for an interview. You can’t stop by Flex’s show without dropping some bars and Lupe didn’t disappoint. Check out his freestyle over The Artifacts’ ‘Wrong Side Of The Tracks’ instrumental.
– — – Nas revealed during an interview with Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex, that his ex-wife Kelis did not initially react well to his decision to use her green wedding dress on his Life Is Good album cover.
“I think I told her about two weeks before it went out. Work was done. Two weeks before it went out,” he said. “At first, she was like, are you dissing me? I was like, come on man, we grown. There was a time when it was turmoil but I’m not trying to play you and just showing what people know. They know we split. The divorce was public, people knew about it.”
He also said that he felt she was vilified during their contentious and well-publicized divorce.
“Honey’s a good girl and she just caught a bad rap in the whole thing. It wasn’t fair, though. I love people that ride with me, because people had to split sides. Her friends had to go with her, my friends… But at the end of the day, I think they were too harsh,” he said. “It’s in a better place. It took a while to get there. Of course, you only see what the media put out there. We had some of the biggest divorce lawyers in L.A. It shouldn’t have happened like that. We didn’t know any better. i wanted to handle it outside of court, and when you’re dealing with divorce sometimes and there’s a lot of anger and hurt, you don’t want to hear what the next person is saying. You just think that person is trying to take you down, so you go and get the best representation you can get. What we realized later, we didn’t have to go at it like that. We in a much better place, thank God. We’re in a much better place.”
- — – The news of altercation between “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God and rapper Busta Rhymes predictably made its way to Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex–who wasted no time clowning his nemesis Charlamagne for getting into a heated argument with the rap superstar.
“I’m stepping on your face ’cause you’re cake! Aggressive radio today, New York. Man, I wish you would,” Flex said during his show. “You should of brought your pops with you with the Taser when Busta was running up on you. Bzzzz! South Carolina boys, y’all like free food, that’s why y’all were down there in the first place. Brutal tonight! … You were worried about the goons coming down to see you this morning! You are pumpkin pie, Bozo! Now go back to washing Carmelo Anthony and Lala’s underwear, what you do best, and I will get you some detergent. Yo fam, don’t you ever come up here and front in New York City! You from South Carolina and you soft!”
Flex is out of pocket for this one. I’ve met C on a couple of occasions and I know many people who are cool with him. He’s a cool cat as far as I’m concerned. Plus, Flex needs to calm down with all that South Carolina talk before Flex becomes part of the food chain!
