Rant Wars ft. Funk Flex, Jay Z, Hannibal Buress

FUNK FLEX RANT #1: 

In the past few days NY DJ and radio personality FUNKMASTER FLEX (HOT97) took to the airwaves twice to rant about a personal beef with Jay Z, airing out some past bitterness (Flex is mad because he feels Jay Z grilled him about his App a couple years ago and then turned around and used that info for his own App) and a few cases of being asked by club 40/40 manager NOT to play Dipset music when he DJ’s there (because of a long running feud between Dipset and Hov). Media hopped on the first rant for obvious reasons (#1 NY Radio DJ takes on #1 NY rapper = #’s). The rant was annoying however, because as much as we do really want to know what the beef is and love celebrities airing out their laundry in public, Flex didn’t really cover much ground and spent about 8 minutes pressing the “bomb” button, which is his trademark sound effect.

Jay’s response was to not say anything publicly about the rant and to instead have news leaked that he was in talks to buy HOT97! Okay, it’s a group of investors, including Jay, but that’s the same thing that happened with the Barclay’s  deal.

Flex then dropped a second rant, again with the bombs every three words, this time talking about a text Hov apparently sent him, using capital letters for “HOV” which Flex found disrespectful, Jay trying to “son” him.

FUNK FLEX RANT #2:

Apparently, comedian Hannibal Buress has had enough and has dropped his own rant against Funk Flex’s rant against Jay Z and hilarity ensued. The comedian is mocking the DJ’s over use of the bomb sound effect as much as anything he is actually talking about. I have been to Hannibal Buress’ shows, listened to him on satellite radio and he is one of the funniest new comedians out!  As a DJ, Flex can really put a hurting on most music artists careers, but Hannibal doesn’t sing and Flex is not really in the world of comedy, so I think he’s safe. I wonder if Flex will go on a rant about Hannibal tomorrow?

SWAVE SEVAH: Radio Interview and Album Release Party

swave sevah

Swave Sevah has made a name for himself battling MC’s Dizaster, Head Ice, Shotgun Shug to name a few (search “Swave Sevah vs” on youtube) and touring with J-Live, Poison Pen and Immortal Technique. This past Friday on MCMI RADIO, we got an exclusive preview of some Swave Sevah songs off his album “Son of a One Armed Man”, set to drop in 3 days on Creative Juices Music. Everything on the album, even the title “Son of a One Armed Man”, is inspired by real life (Swave’s dad actually had one arm since a childhood accident and yet overcame that, to become a champion martial artist) and features veteran spitters Killer Mike, Sean Price, Poison Pen, Marv Won, Ike P, Chordz Cordero and others.

Besides making music and winning MC battles, the Harlem native is known to have a mean knuckle game. The conversation heated up as we talked about the right to “shoot the fair one”, Washington State’s “Mutual Fight Agreement” law and what happened to someone who posted a disrespectful sexual reference under a picture of Swave’s daughter on Facebook. I know, Facebook beef is corny, but you wont believe what this guy had the nerve to say about his daughter. This one might be the exception to the rule.

To find out how the story ended, and hear exclusive tracks before the album drops, listen to MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk.

We spoke with Homeboy Sandman about the release of this video and his new album “First of a Living Breed” a few weeks ago on MCMI Radio. Sandman always comes with dope visuals to match his equally amazing music. Be sure to cop the album.
