So, this year’s Hot 97 Summer Jam was not without controversy, as usual. When jock Peter Rosenberg introduced Kendrick Lamar, he said “We’re about real hip-hop here, not ‘Starships’,” referring to Nicki Minaj’s crossover single. Lil Wayne that preceded to Tweet “Young Money ain’t doing summer jam,” and pulled all of his labelmates from the show.

So, planned for Nicki’s performance were guest appearances from Nas, Lauryn Hill, Cam’Ron, and 2 Chainz. Since Nicki didn’t perform, Hot 97 retorted by allowing all of her special guests to perform in place of her. Funk Master Flex fired plenty of shots during his set, suggesting that he is going to destroy Nicki’s career. He fired plenty of indirect shots, suggesting “Rappers afraid to step on this stage tonight. If you’re commercial and pop and afraid to touch down in Jersey.” He continued “You better turn me on tomorrow at 7. We ain’t fuckin’ with commercial rappers no more. You don’t go gold. It’s all your fault. I’m dedicated to tearing you down. I’m gonna show you mama. You think you didn’t sell any records this time? Tune into me tomorrow at 7 O’clock. I got to ruin a career.”

    Strong (even if not very classy) move. I respect it. I also respect Flex for taking the stance he has, as he could easily have pulled a company man move and disavowed Rosenberg’s statement. Luckily for all involved, Flex’s ego is far too big for that, and fingers crossed that he does actually shut down the career in question. Something i usually wouldn’t wish on anyone, but this is the exception to that rule.

    You know, I can’t help but think that the Young Monkey crew brought this on themelves. How long can you put out garbage and act like you are just miles ahead of everyone else just because you have dough? I just hope Flex sticks to his word and stop messing with commercial rap.

  • sevechild says:

    Unfortunately at this point in their respective careers, Flex is not in a position to ruin Nicki’s career. She’s already established, and the majority Nicki’s fans probably don’t even know who Flex is. Flex will just be preaching to a choir that is already anti-Nicki in the first place.

    It’s admirable and all on Flex’s part, but Nicki isn’t going anywhere.

    ^ That’s a very fair point.
