Bombs were dropping left and right when Funk Flex took to the air on HOT97 Thursday night (June 5) and responded to Dame Dash’s Instagram beef. While there’s no specific incident that started the feud, the former Roc-A-Fella Records founder and Hov’s ex-business partner also came for Def Jam president Joie Manda.
“This clown right here is joi manda… I’m not even going to give him the respect of calling him any type of ceo… Hes is like the culture vultures Dimwitted assistant that does what he’s told… I’m putting him on blast because I’ve personally witness him start war between two creatives from the same culture so he could benifit… Which is what they always do… Divide and conquer… You would think when 2 young guys have a problem with each other the older guy would sit them in a room and squash it… These guys promote it and make money of the winner… They could care less if somebody dies or get hurt.. As long as they make money off it….he’s also the guy that started the divide and conquer beef between me and currency…. The funny thing is he can’t get a dollar from his own people so he tries helps exploit ours… He’s a nobody… Never let him front on you and I’m gonna keep calling him and his whole crew out… You know who you are and your up next #dontgetscared… I’m playing them all out publicly because I’m sick of them bullying people from my culture and there soft as hell… Pause..and they cheat… We not fighting each other anymore… We getting at the cowards that make money of our struggle every day… Have some respect for the culture that is paying all your bills”
Another target in Dash’s ‘Gram rants included esteemed hip-hop exec Lyor Cohen.
Look how happy the culture vulture Lyor Cohen looks to be getting money off all of us and our authentic experiences… We’re all mad cause we can’t make money of his him cause he never did anything cool ever…I wonder what sell out from our culture that has been employed by them for years is gonna stick up for him like @djfunkflex did for that clown joi It’s funny how they try to make us fight each to take the focus off them robbing the us…Old trick and I m not going for it… Let’s keep the focus on them… The divide conquer game is over… I’ll deal with @djfunkflex later
Dash then verbally attacked Flex:
“Im just curious why @djfunkflex has so much to say about a person when he’s on a mike on the radio but when I directly addressed him so we could publicly have a face to face conversation and he hasent said a word yet… @djfunkflex I’m calling you and joi out… And lyor his as well… They don’t even have enough respect for the culture to address what Iam saying … You nerds have been making money from rap beef for years which makes our culture look stupid so why not engage in #ceobeef ?… Pause …because all three of you know I will expose your intellect and the whole world will see exactly how smart you lames really are #dontgetscared”
Then, in a rant running for over 20 minutes, Flex called out Dash, calling him a “sore winner” and saying that Dash was getting checks from the folks he called “culture vultures”. He also addressed Dash saying Curren$y not getting his proper due. Though the veteran DJ invited Dash to speak on his show, Dash instead opted for an interview with the Combat Jack Show.
