O.T. Genasis Feat. Meek Mill & Jeezy
You may have never thought you wanted to hear Meek Mill rapping over OT Genasis' "CoCo", but you did. Him and Jeezy assist the Busta Rhymes affiliate on a new remix of the breakout hit, premiered by Funkmaster Flex (hence the several seconds of bomb sound effects that kick off the track). After wisely letting Meek kick the song off to drum up hype, Genasis shows his rapping chops by giving us an entirely new verse for the second one on this remix. Jeezy bats clean-up here, acting like the true pioneer of coke rap that he is. Feeling this one?
"Appreciate Ya", the latest leak from Joell Ortiz, proves that real lyricism is still alive and well. In true rapper's rapper fashion, the NY MC unleashes a flood of dope bars and slick metaphors over a soulful production laced by the often overlooked Heatmakerz. The song, which was premiered by Funkmaster Flex, also features audio of an old Funk Flex interview with Kanye West and Pusha T, where both Ye and Push praise the Slaughterhouse member's lyrical capabilities. Mr. West even calls Ortiz "fresh." How fresh do you think this new joint from Joell Ortiz is?
Trap Queen (Remix) (Tags)
Fetty Wap Feat. French Montana
New Jersey native Fetty Wap has his underground hit "Trap Queen" to thank for his current successes, and now here come the remixes. This one's official, and features French Montana. Premiered by Funkmaster Flex, the track thusly comes with some bombs and tags, but thankfully, Flex mostly leaves this one unadulterated. For his part, Montana name-checks Big Sean, Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg, Nas and Ghostface Killah. The artwork features a pretty literal interpretation of the song's title, depicting a gun shoved into a high-heeled shoe.
Funkmaster Flex Rant (Parody)
By now, you've likely heard Funkmaster Flex's rant on HOT 97, where he accused Jay Z of stealing ideas from him, and labeled the rapper's Life + Times blog as "trash". However, the most memorable part of the rant came with the excessive use of the DJ's signature bomb sample, peppered throughout the speech, exploding after just about every sentence.
Funkmaster Flex (Freestyle)
Making his way by the Hot 97 studios Wednesday night, Action Bronson stopped by the Funkmaster Flex Show and treated the listeners to some bars free of charge.
Doo Doo (Radio Rip)
Troy Ave recently visited Funkmaster Flex at the Hot 97 offices to premiere a new track called "Doo Doo" that's somewhat out of character for the powder-obsessed rapper. Listen to the radio rip now. A piano-led track that recalls Biz Markie's "Just A Friend" more than anything else, "Doo Doo" is about as lighthearted as its title suggests, with Ave singing for most of the track before busting out a verse about halfway through. For a guy who's always seemed too insecure to break out of of his conventional coke-rapper mode, "Doo Doo" is, despite its title, a breath of fresh air.
Jackin For Beats 2015 (Freestyle)
OT Genasis is a Busta Rhymes-cosigned New York rapper who broke out with a very un-New York song ("CoCo"), so in order to deflect the ire of Ebro, Peter Rosenberg and anyone else who holds the idealized image of a "New York rapper" dearer than their firstborn child, he has to at least make some attempt to "Bring New York Back," right? Correct. He now appears freestyling over three NYC staples on a Funkmaster Flex exclusive entitled "Jackin For Beats 2015."
