Funkmaster Flex went on a lengthy rant, blasting Dame Dash, and accusing him of owing money to Curren$y and Beanie Sigel.
Earlier this week Dame Dash decided to rip into Def Jam President Joie Manda, calling him a "culture vulture" among other things in an extensive rant on Instagram. Joie Manda himself has not responded to the attack, but Funkmaster Flex decided to address Dame's comments on his radio show yesterday, as he and Dame have been going back and forth on Instagram over the last few days.
“Right now, stick to artwork and clothing and slippers,” said Flex. “Do that. That’s all you. That’s your lane. Let me do this music thing up here. I got this. Roc-A-Fella didn’t give me any money to play nothin’, always had paper. Nice try!"
The DJ then confronted Dame on his use of the term, "Culture Vultures". "What is that? People who are not of his color capitalizing on the culture?" he asked. "Is that what is being said? Don’t try to say you ever paid me to play records. Tell the story of how you was tryin’ to pay the person next to me to get me to play records. You remember that conversation?"
Flex then suggested that Dash made his money from so called "Culture Vultures" throughout his career. “When your label situations get signed in the ’90s, he was getting $2 to $3 million in overhead,” he said. “He was getting million dollar video budgets. He was getting million dollar album budgets. The culture vulture cut him those checks! Who put a gun to his head to sign those deals? New York City, everybody would've took those deals and he took them and was successful at it. He’s a sore winner. The culture vulture allowed you to call yourself the cakeaholic. Def Jam let that logo live. You don’t wanna look in the mirror and take the mistakes you made! Don’t be mad at me ’cause I’m still current and you’re not. Don’t be mad ’cause I stuck up for my friend.”
Finally, the HOT 97 personality called Dame out on money he allegedly owes to Curren$y and Beanie Sigel. “When you gonna give Beans his $11 million for State Property that you didn’t give him yet?” he said. “Is that a culture vulture? You did it to yourself. He had another label deal after the Roc and he signed Curren$y. Curren$y put out two albums. You didn’t pay Curren$y on one song, B. Who’s the culture vulture? You didn’t pay him cause you didn’t see how digital he was. You didn’t have a computer. You were in a slipper, art coma."
Curren$y later echoed Flex's thoughts about Dame on Twitter. Read his tweets below.
Stay tuned for further updates on the ongoing beef.
