Funkmaster Flex has been a mainstay of New York hip hop radio for years receiving love and hate for those who think his time has been up and a younger dj should take that position. Now it’s gaining momentum after Flex promised Meek Mill and a new “Drake diss record” on his show, making listeners wait yet never producing what he promissed.
Change.org has a petition against Flex which was started by fan Azeem Khan in New York. The petition reads:
“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.”
Over 6000 signatures of the needed 7500 have been collected!!!
