Now that Funkmaster Flex has “made up” with Nicki Minaj, the Hot 97 radio personality is continuing to blast another female rapper. Flex took to Instagram to accuse Cardi B and her team of paying deejays to support her music.
Funk Flex wrote in the LevelUpHipHop comment section:
I think Cardi is a great entertainer and has great songs! I gave my opinion when she said she was “King of NY” and when I found out she didn’t write her own songs! I met Cardi and her management and I respected his and Cardi’s hustle! BUT LETS BE CLEAR.. CARDI’S TEAM AND MANY OTHER ARTIST (in the beginning of career) PAY DJS TO PLAY RECORDS AND SAY THAT “THEY ARE HOT” (Since I never took a penny from a rapper I’m not scared to speak on it) I have emails I’ve gotten from labels over the years with names and figures!”
The 51-year-old New Yorker didn’t provide any actual evidence for his allegations. As of press time, Cardi hasn’t directly responded to Flex’s comments. She did post on her page, “Don’t kill them with kindness kill the with blindness!”
