Funkmaster Flex, legendary DJ and Hot 97 radio host, is known for telling HIS TRUTH to anyone who will listen and social media seems like the best place. This past Monday, Flex was on his Instagram live and shared his thoughts on Cardi B.
There has been much discussion and debate about ghostwriting, but there has been more controversy surrounded by top rappers who are said to have ghostwriters getting them to the top. Drake has been the most successful rapper accused of not writing his own rhymes but Cardi B has admitted to having a co-writer that helps her articulate her words and express herself, but Flex “…can’t stand rappers who don’t write they shit!”
Flex goes on and on to say “What did we learn today boys and girls? Write your own shit! And when your shit gets funny, don’t go on the gram and turn your comments off, [and] don’t fire your management as soon as you get to the right place!”
Within the same Instagram live session, Funk Flex went on to say Power 105.1 radio host and Love & Hip Hop NY cast member, DJ Self was correct in not signing Cardi B. She gave him music that was “trash” according to Flex. He continued to say “He didn’t hear Bodak Yellow, let me tell you something, sometime $5 million dollars later, to be part of something you don’t believe in, that’s what n****as do, I’m sure I turned down a lot of rappers… If I don’t like, I don’t like it!..”
