Pressure From Modern Day Payola?
HSK Exclusive – Hot 97’s unarguably biased radio programming — filled with frequent rotating plays of the same artists — is something that Funkmaster Flex seems to stand by. Know why? Because after Hot 97’s programming director was checked for just that, Flex reportedly ran to his defense.
Sources say rapper Freddie “Bumpy Knuckles” Foxx didn’t hold back on the issue, bringing it to the attention of Hot 97’s Ebro Darden. That’s when we’re told Foxx and the Hot 97 programming director got into a verbal beef — leading Flex to stand behind Darden.
Here’s what Freddie Foxx took to Twitter to say to Funkmaster Flex:
“All of a sudden you wanna say something to N—s on twitter….FOH You always feel the need to jump to a N— rescue when you know that NY radio needs more balance. Really Flex?
I said nothing about you or any of the DJ’s there. What’s wrong dawg, Ebro can’t fight his own battles? I been there for you too my N—, and the last time I saw U, you had security & gave N—-s the dead fish hand shake.”
Is Funkmaster Flex considered a coward for dissing Tupac more than a decade after his death? Of course. Don’t believe me.. Ask Game.
