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.”

    Why does everybody hate Nicki Minaj again? She pulled bullshit career moves like all these other rappers Funkmaster Flex has supported.

  • Skins says:

    Her awful voice makes me yearn for deafness. But, valid point about Flex.

  • Hodges says:

    I have a hard time believing the suits at Universal’s umbrella are gonna allow anything to derail Nicki as far as public relations. Flex might get called into an office building he’s never seen before by someone he never met. With commercial rap being at an all-time high in terms of wackness, I didn’t know Summer Jam was still relevant like that. Intrigued to see what goes down at 7.

  • John says:

    flex is going to have nicki on his show tonight. he failed.

  • Model Citizen says:

    I agree with sevechild, I don’t think Flex has much pull with the 13 year old girl demographic.
