Funkmaster Flex Blasted For Creating ‘Fake Hip-Hop Beef’ To Stay Relevant

Hot 97’s DJ Funkmaster Flex recent comments about rappers jacking A$AP Rocky’s swag has caught the attention of fellow radio personality Peter Rosenberg.

On Tuesday (April 3), Flex took to social media to accuse Travis Scott of biting Rocky’s style. He later said he got $5K on Rocky to “smoke him bar for bar” in a rap battle.

Rosenberg, a long-time colleague of Flex at the New York radio station, took issue with Flex’s comments during a taping of Ebro In The Morning.

“The reason it bothered me, Ebro, is [that] Flex — just to get conversation going on his Instagram — is basically trying to create a divide between two awesome, important, great artists,” he said. “I just didn’t understand the point of it.”

He then interjected to offer a different viewpoint.

“I’m not really as upset as you are,” he said. “I mean, it’s kind of like barbershop talk. I think what Flex ends up doing is having conversations that he has behind the scenes, and he just jumps on social media with it and it starts going. Now, is he doing it for clout and likes? Absolutely. Is he trolling so that people talk about it like we’re doing right now? Absolutely. Does Flex really sit around in his private time when he’s working on cars thinking about Travis Scott and A$AP Rocky? Absolutely not.”
