Our very own Funk Flex made a good point on his recent rant concerning #MusicStillMatters. In this generation not only do the fans, but the talent themselves worry about one thing, Gossip and Social Media. Jersey City Rapper Albee Al has been supplying the airwaves with a style of music that makes us all remember what we originally are here for, Real Hip Hop!
One of the Web’s sources for the best in NEW MUSIC, VIDEO’s, NEWS, KICKS, SPORTS, TECH, AUTO TALK, and MUSIC VIDEOS. Are you ready to be apart of it?!
Our very own Funk Flex has landed a cameo in the second season of FOX’s wildly successful show, Empire. The legendary DJ/radio personality will pop up in episode 8, playing himself in a rap battle between Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Gray) and newcomer Freda Gatz (played by female rapper Bre-Z, who will be introduced in the season premiere.)
“This is EPIC for me,” Empire director Sanaa Hamri wrote on Instagram. “#FUNKFLEX is in the building!! Directing @funkflex for @empirefox. He is BRINGING IT! For all you hiphop heads u know what it is!! This episode is gonna be [fire emojis] #empire #fox #secondseason #bestcastever.”

We’ve recently reported that Bow Wow was busted for telling people that he bought a mansion when in reality he is renting it for $12K per month (which is a hefty number, so nobody was even knocking him for that). Although our story was in no way trying to necessarily “clown” the rapper/actor but more so state facts, he still seemed to feel a type of way when people began gassing him on Instagram in his comment section.
An IG user wrote to Shad Moss aka Bow Wow:
“Flex was online clowning you just cause you’re renting. As long as you have a place to sleep fam it don’t matter keep up the grind bro.”
Now in reality, no – Flex was NOT clowning anybody. In fact, I was the one who wrote that article; not Flex. However, Shad apparently didn’t even bother to read what was published and decided to go off on a tangent against Flex simply because of a comment – furthermore letting us see his true colors.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the BOSSMAN FUNK FLEX!!! We hope you have another amazing year of success, health & happiness. May all your wishes come true (Eat lots of cake today — 40 day reset can restart tomorrow)!!!
Members from Team #IFWT have a special message for you after the jump…
The whole rap game is split on the issue of whether or not ghostwriting is acceptable in Hip Hop. The Guardian Newspaper addresses what this feud says about Hip Hop today.
Twitter went crazy tonight waiting impatiently for Flex to drop Meek’s diss track. At this point you know it never happened. With all types of tweets and memes being posted it may seem as this is an unforgivable act. read more below.
Update; No wonder I couldn’t find out where is was cause the video is old, some followers of our ‘Gram and the site pointed out he doesn’t have a beard, or look like he was in the gym, sorry I should have investigated more, I guess I didn’t care, my apologies. BUT beside that it’s NOT a Meek Mill diss(or Funk), everything else holds true, so I’m gonna leave it, especially for all the Drizzy fans!!!
Future stopped by Hot97 to talk with Funk Flex before his NYC show last night. While there he dropped some gems, like how he grew up in a crowded household, sleeping on the floor, giving him the hunger to hustle and get a better lifestyle.
