When it comes to New York radio, there is always controversy surrounding it.
NY’s Hot 97 and Power 105.1 radio stations have always been in competition when it comes to ratings. There’s always one DJ that continuously trolls Power 105.1, and that’s none other than FunkMaster Flex. Those who are from NY know, when the Notorious B.I.G’s “Juicy” plays on 105.1, the station blurs out the one liner “Peace to Ron G, Brucey B, Kid Capri,
Funkmaster Flex, Lovebug Starsky” in an effort to give Flex zero publicity on their station LOL.
Apparently, the Program Director for Hot 97 sent Flex a congratulatory text, encouraging him to keep up the good work because his ratings took the station to #1 last week. Of course, Flex had to post about this and throw shade to his arch nemesis DJ Clue and DJ Self (both 105.1 DJ’s) via Instagram… LOL.
The DJ kept it light hearted by calling it some “friendly competition”. Suuuuure buddy, we’ll go with that.
