Charlamagne Declares Funkmaster Flex "Donkey Of The Day," Ebro Responds

The Breakfast Club host went in on the DJ for breaking his promise during last night's radio segment, and Hot 97's Ebro had a fiery reply.

A broken promise always hurts. But when its comes from a DJ who vowed to strike fans with the week's most highly-anticipated radio record, it stings.

Sadly, that is the current plight of Hot 97s DJ Funkmaster Flex, who has another smear across his name from Power 105.1's Charlamagne Tha God: a "Donkey Of The Day" title. This morning (July 28), the "Breakfast Club" host delivered a faux-heartfelt eulogy for Flex's career and credibility as church instrumentals rung in the background. Lining him up with other '80s icons who have slumped their legacies such as Bill Cosby and Hulk Hogan, Charlamagne booted the Bronx-bred DJ as just another disappointment after failing to deliver Meek Mill's counter attack to Drake.

"I want to thank you all for coming to celebrate the life of Aston George Taylor aka Pump Faker Flex aka Flex Hogan aka Funkmaster Flex," he recited. "Our childhood has been ruined because another '80s icon has proved that he's not who we thought he was all these years."

He called Flex's failed radio stunt a "reach for ratings." Flex seemingly sided with Meek during the rapper's current spat with Drizzy. Baiting fans through a promise of the exclusive track, a supposed email from Meek was a no-show. When the wait was finally over, an angry social media mob took to Twitter to blast the Flex, creating an official petition to throw him from Hot 97's DJ throne. In what seemed like a lengthy bout of sarcasm, Flex flooded his own timeline with the steam from pissed off fans:

Meek played into the mockery too, rufflling a few feathers with the Twitter release of a 15-second faux-track titled "Beautiful Nightmare." Then Flex's team cued in on the Power 105.1 show's "Donkey" declaration, for some defensive commentary of their own. Ebro Darden of Hot 97's "Ebro In The Morning" made sure to clarify that Meek's absence on the show was not entirely Flex's fault, and had some choice words for the Breakfast Club  as well.

"We specifically were told that Meek Mill had something for Flex last night, and we waited. And waited,” he said. “And now y’all can go as hard as y’all want to go at Flex. We been through many wars here at Hot 97 before, nobody is afraid of y’all. Matter of fact, yo Breakfast Club, Imma deal with y’all later," Ebro affirmed. He made sure to add that Breakfast Club wouldn't be the station it is today if it weren't for H0t 97. "Your whole existence is based on coming on Hot 97 and talking about people here. Your entire existence. I don’t care how much money iHeart put behind y’all."

Since we've already got one rap feud on our hands, let's keep our fingers crossed that a radio war won't come of it either. Peep Charlamagne's Donkey Of The Day above and Hot 97's reply below:

Report: Ariana Grande Got Paid Twice As Much As Beyoncé For Coachella

As fans continue to marvel at Beyonce's historical Coachella performance in the Netflix documentary, Homecoming, a new report about the pay discrepancy amongst the festival's headliners is also grabbing people's attention. According to Variety, Ariana Grande got paid double of what Bey earned for her performance.

Grande reportedly made $8 million from the festival, while Beyoncé only took home an estimated $3 to $4 million.

This certainly seems a little odd to fans due to a handful of reasons. For one, Beyoncé is a much more seasoned artist. Additionally, her headlining show, also known as BeyChella, was a historical moment that drew millions of viewers.

Grande also made history this year as the youngest artist to ever headline the three-day event, but the U.S. pay gap may have more to do with the huge difference between their paychecks. Black women make approximately 65 cents to every dollar earned by their white male counterparts. By contrast, white women earn 83 cents to every dollar earned by white men, according to the Pew Research Center.

Comedy Series 'Rel' Cancelled After Just One Season

Despite making audiences across the country laugh, FOX's comedy series Rel will not return for a second season.

According to Variety, the Lil Rey Howery-lead show– which also starred Sinbad and Jess Hilarious– continued to plummet in ratings.

"Rel‘s (now series) finale, which aired Jan. 13, delivered 2.8 million viewers and a 1.1 in the demo — the series’ best showing since its premiere — but that largely was attributable to the evening’s lead-in: the hugely watched Eagles/Saints NFC divisional playoff," the report reads.

The series was inspired largely in-part to Howery's real life experiences, who lived by the credo "always believe in yourself and great things will come." Shenanigans throughout the series ensue when he discovers his wife is having an affair with his barber.

"I want to thank all the loyal 2 million plus people that tuned in every week to my show," Howery wrote on Instagram regarding the news of the show's cancellation. "I’m so proud of what we did and it was a dream come true... I got a chance to not only create a show based off my material and some real life events I got to work and create magic with my friends... God is so good and I’m truly blessed."

The series was put in the spotlight when its co-creator and executive producer Kevin Barnett suddenly passed away in January during a trip to Mexico. Barnett's death was caused by pancreatitis complications. He was only 32 years old.

Kodak Black Says His GPS Is The Reason For His Arrest At The Border

Kodak Black was detained at the U.S.-Canada border for possession of drugs and weapons earlier this week. Reports say that the "Expeditiously" rapper was in possession of a Glock 9mm pistol and marijuana, and another car believed to be owned by members of his team had loaded handguns and marijuana.

Per TMZ, the Florida rapper says that he got lost initially, and had no idea he left America. He was arrested at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge heading into New York State.

"We're told he didn't realize until he was asked to present a passport, and at that point, there was no turning back ... so they stayed on the route," the site reads. "The rapper set out Wednesday to drive himself from Detroit to Boston, punched the destination into his GPS, and it put him on the most direct route ... through Canada, NY and onto Massachusetts."

His untimely arrest forced him to cancel a show in Boston on Wednesday night (April 17) and a show in Connecticut the following night (April 18), much to the ire of his fans in attendance. He is reportedly set to perform tonight in Philly.

"Kodak's run-ins with the law have also been a topic of discussion. The 21-year-old was released on August 18, 2018, after serving seven months for marijuana possession and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon," VIBE reported. "Kodak currently faces criminal sexual conduct charges and faces up to a maximum of 30 years in prison."
