While Funkmaster Flex co-premiered Jay Z’s 2009 single ‘D.O.A.,’ things seem to have suddenly gotten contentious between the Hot 97 personality and one of Jay Z’s signature properties.
‘Your website is trash, by the way,’ Flex quipped about Jay Z’s Life+Times. He also had some pointed opinions regarding Jay Z and Samsung’s Magna Carta Holy Grail app. ‘Y’all can’t move with me in this digital space. Maybe if y’all copied everything I was doing with the app, that app would’ve did better. It wouldn’t have crashed the day your album dropped.’
According to Flex, his sound effect-laden rant was prompted by a query from someone operating on behalf of Life+Times regarding his involvement in the Diplomats reunion.
‘I’ve always been super neutral in this situation,’ Flex continued. ‘But I don’t understand how somebody can ask me from that site of my involvement with the Dipset reunion, but when I used to go out to the 40/40, I was told not to play any Dipset records. I’m so confused.’
The rant also featured Flex threatening to ruin his unnamed target saying, ‘I let you live in this town. Don’t think I can’t ruin you. ‘Cause that’s a nice feather in my cap if I ruin you. Today, we bumpin’ heads.’
Jay Z and the Diplomats carried on an icy relationship dating back to Cam’s perceived diss of Jay Z on his 2000 song, “Let Me Know.” Additional friction was created when Cam’ron was appointed Vice President of Roc-a-fella in 2002 with various disses and references traded between both camps.
As for the 2013 Magna Carta Holy Grail application Funkmaster Flex referenced, the app was troubled by glitches, with Jay admitting to Power 105.1, “That has to get better.” Despite the technical issues, an estimated 1.2 million users downloaded the app. Audio of Funkmaster Flex’s statements are below. Flex begins referencing Life+Times at the 10:27 mark.
