Funkmaster Flex might have pulled off the biggest letdown of the year last night.
Throughout the weekend, Flex had an agenda to expose Drake some more after he released his diss track to Meek Mill called “Charged Up,” which premiered on his OVO Sound Radio show on Beats 1. After promising listeners he had more reference tracks from Drake — “Blessings,” “R.I.C.O.” and “Know Yourself” — he also promised that Meek Mill would be coming to his show for an interview and possibly premiering a response record to Drizzy.
At 7 p.m. on Monday night, every rap fan tuned into Hot 97. About two hours in, listeners started to realize that Flex didn’t have a record or even Meek Mill for an interview. Backlash ensued. There’s a change.org petition to have Flex step down from his role at Hot 97 because everyone’s disappoint was that real. As written on the website:
“This fraud of a DJ decided to lie to everyone for ratings and downloads of the Hot 97 app that Meek Mill would be on tonight to release a diss track to Drake to no avail. No one has given Hot 97 two hours of listening time since Biggie was alive, and it's a crime to have taken that from us. The people have spoken and it is time for Funk Flex to step down.”
This morning, Flex is still pretty quiet about the whole situation. Plus, it's not looking good for Flex's credibility as Charlamagne Tha God named him the Donkey of the Day (which you can hear his hilarious eulogy below). However, today is also the day that Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint Tour is stopping in Toronto at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. After Meek’s humorous Drake diss tweet, do you really think he’ll perform or say something about Drake in his own city? DJ Bran, his tour DJ, hints it’ll happen, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
