Swizz Beatz Wants Funkmaster Flex and DJ Clue to Duke It Out

He's inspired by his recent battle with Just Blaze.

Published March 10th

At the end of February, a DJ battle went down that was definitely one for the history books.

With Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze going head to head during an event appropriately billed as the Battle of the Beats, it appears as though Swizz has now found himself inspired to set up yet another legendary face-off.

As reported, Swizz Beatz is currently trying to orchestrate the next installment of a DJ battle to feature none other than DJ Clue and Funkmaster Flex.

With Swizz Beatz putting feelers out regarding the idea, it turns out Funk Flex is eager to get down as soon as possible but DJ Clue is looking to make sure that the event comes with an appropriate payday.

"I told Swizz exactly what I wanted for the situation to happen," Clue wrote on Instagram, clarifying his initial comments regarding his interest in the battle. "The short video above is me tired of talking 45 mins about the same s**t..send the bag and let’s get to it. They said 'Bring your best work Album Cuts & Freestyles.' Shawn Carter & Swizz just called me on 3-way. I’m not bout that talk life when it comes to getting to work. Send the bag..it’s a go."

Hopefully the pieces can fall in place and fans are treated to what is sure to be a memorable competition.

Take a look at Funkmaster Flex and DJ Clue talking about Swizz Beatz's idea for the battle in the clips below.
