When you do as much talking as Funkmaster Flex does on a regular basis, you’re bound to offend someone out there every now and then. And, when you’ve been hosting a radio show and deejaying for as long as Flex has—he’s been doing in the music biz for more than two decades now—those offensive moments add up. So, it should come as no surprise to hear that, over the course of his career, Flex has endured beefs with a number of different rappers, celebrities, and fellow DJs.
Most recently, Flex got into a heated argument with Nicki Minaj on his Hot 97 radio show on Monday night—just 24 hours after Ms. Minaj refused to participate in Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert because of some comments made by Hot 97 morning show host Peter Rosenberg.
