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?
I remember the first KOTD–Compliment Rap Battle ever. It was Tricky P vs Deffinition. I was there at King of the Dot (KOTD) World Domination 2, in Toronto Canada, summer of 2011 and this was the most creative, innovative and HILARIOUS battle I had ever seen.
Shout out to the whole KOTD organization, one of the best leagues out there, period. They elevated the game with their attention to detail, graphics intros and legendary match ups. You see how I just complimented them? That’s how the Compliment Rap Battle works. Instead of dissing your opponent, you have to go out of your way to compliment them, better than they compliment you. Now battle champions Pat Stay and Rone return to the Compliment battle ring, at the Hopscotch Festival 2014, to secure their legacies as not only the meanest battle rappers in the game, but the NICEST as well. Literally.
Watch Pat Stay vs Rone, above, and then you can check out the first ever compliment rap battle with Tricky P vs Deffinition, below. (Catch me to the left of Organik, behind PH’s left shoulder, cracking up!).
Sean Price is “the brokest rapper you know“, so can we really blame him for trying to make some change while in Vegas? Sean P visits the infamous pawn shop from the hit tv show “Pawn Stars” and tries to hock a historical potato. I don’t know about historical, but it is hysterical!
