As fans patiently waited to hear Meek Mill’s reaction to Drake’s “Charged Up,” a record Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex alleged to be premiering Monday night (July 27), they soon realized both the MC and DJ were empty-handed.

While many took to Twitter to voice their annoyance, Azeem Khan took things further and started an online petition to remove Flex from his position at the New York radio station.
Requiring 5,000 signatures at the time of this post, the petition, which calls Flex “a fraud of DJ” garnered more than 3,800 signatures.
There has always been word that DJ Funk Funkmaster Flex was not someone who was willing to give up his position at Hot 97 for his slot. Despite constant critiques from everywhere for the old man to step down, and give the younger people a shot he decided to stay where he was. Last year Dame Dash was at the forefront of the movement saying that Funk Flex really needs to just leave. Well, today was the last straw. 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.
