Funkmaster Flex On Jay Z’s ‘Life+Times’: ‘Your Website Is Trash’
Jay Z has a laundry list of supporters and admirers, but judging by his last comments, Funkmaster Flex isn’t one of them. In a new radio rant session, the Hot 97 DJ aired out his frustrations with not only Jay’s allegedly shady behavior, but also his digital/entrepreneurial properties, Life+Times and The 40/40 Club. It all started with an email Flex received prior to the launch of Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album and app launch. “Couple of years ago, I dropped that DJ Funk Flex app, I get an email from a writer at Life+Times, the website,” Flex explained. “They want to talk to me about my digital involvement and write a story. First of all, I salute the person who wanted to write the story. I appreciate the love, but bruh I’ma tell you something. I peeped back then when they used a writer back then that did not work for the magazine, excuse me, the website. And that website is trash by the way. And I figured I’d say trash so you could take me serious where I’m going. They do this interview after I drop my app, asking me a lot of key questions about apps. Building apps, how, why, how’d you launch it, but all of that didn’t get put in the story though. A lot of that information got put into that new Jay Z app. But I was good with that. I ate that. Everybody’s out here hustling.” He then jumps to yesterday (Jan. 15), when he received a new email from Life+Times, where they expressed interest in interviewing him about his involvement in the Dipset reunion. Flex didn’t take kindly to the request, since he was previously denied the right to play Dipset music in a the Atlantic City 40/40 Club.

Y’all can’t move with me in this digital space. Maybe if y’all copied everything I was doing with the app, your app wouldn’t have crashed the day your album dropped. Don’t play with me. I didn’t take no sides in that situation. Play me like I’m stupid and you’re gonna see a different kind of dude firing off on you. I let you live in this town, don’t think I can’t ruin you.” Oop. Flex is not here for any of Jay Z’s shenanigans. Listen to him go off on Hov—in between Flex’s trademark excessive dropped bomb sounds, of course—starting at the 10:30 mark.
