Dj Funkmaster Flex is NOT happy with a few of Jay Z’s business ventures. Last night, Flex popped off on-air about his past dealing with Jay’s Life+Times website and 40/40 club.
From what we’ve gathered, it seems like the rant is due largely in part to the feud between Jay Z & Dipset members.
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.
We fast forward to today. My assistant gets an email – “We would like to do a story about your involvement in the Dipset reunion” from Life+Times maga… What is it a site? Site’s trash. A bunch of dumb big pictures and no numbers. Y’all can’t move with me in this digital space….
I’ve always been super neutral in this situation. But I don’t understand how somebody from that site can ask me about my involvement in the Dipset reunion. But when I used to go to 40/40, I was told not to play any Dipset records. I’m so confused.
And I’m gonna tell you something about that 40/40 in Atlantic City. There was a security guard that came up to me and told me to change that record, because of my respect for Desiree I changed it. We was gonna wear you out in that club that night. Your whole security is my Tunnel security. I made them dudes rich.
We were gonna press you that night. And just in case you’re feeling lucky, I’m back in Atlantic City this Sunday. You know who I’m talking to. You’re funny looking and you’re a clown. We were gonna take you down that night. You knew it. That’s why you were crying.
Let me be clear, because I read through everything in that email that was sent to me, I don’t care about your website. Your website’s trash. 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.”
Listen to Flex’s rant below starting at around the 10:30 mark. We don’t know too much about hip-hop’s inner circle, but we’d be a little weary about popping off on Jay Z.
