The word war started after Flex told ESPN's Highly Questionable that the "Netflix" rapper delivered the weakest freestyle attempt out of all the guests on his Hot 97 radio show. Flex, who has had discrepancies with other recording artists in the past, didn't want to give an answer at first.
“The freestyle that wasn't very good on my show, um, it had to be 2 Chainz," he said, before defending the 36-year-old. "Honestly, I think I caught him off guard. I think he didn't expect me to ask him to do it. I've heard him on shows freestyling before, so I knew he could handle it, but I think that day he couldn't handle it."
Word got back to 2 Chainz, and he wasn't very happy.
He addressed the issue in New York City Wednesday (April 29) night at a birthday party for DJ Prostyle of Hot 97's rival station, Power 105.1. "I don't give a f--- what Funkmaster Flex gotta' say about this n---- from Atlanta," he told the cheering crowd.
"I came [in] this mother----a from the bottom, I ain't used no motherf---in' help!" Chainz went on. "I ain't come to no n---- for no favors. I got up here on my own!"
In closing, Chainz reiterated his feelings towards the New York radio vet: "F--- you and what you think about me, n---a."
So far, no rebuttal from Flex.
