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 intoÂ 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.Â
âRight now, stick to artwork and clothing and slippers,â said Flex. âDo that. Thatâs all you. Thatâs your lane. Let me do this music thing up here. I got this. Roc-A-Fella didnât give me any money to play nothinâ, always had paper. Nice try!"Â
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? Donât try to say you ever paid me to play records. Tell the story of how you was tryinâ 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. âWhen your label situations get signed in the â90s, he was getting $2 to $3 million in overhead,â he said. âHe was getting million dollar video budgets. He was getting million dollar album budgets. The culture vulture cut him those checks! Who put a gun to his head to sign those deals? New York City, everybody would've took those deals and he took them and was successful at it. Heâs a sore winner. The culture vulture allowed you to call yourself the cakeaholic. Def Jam let that logo live. You donât wanna look in the mirror and take the mistakes you made! Donât be mad at me âcause Iâm still current and youâre not. Donât be mad âcause I stuck up for my friend.â
Finally, the HOT 97 personality called Dame out on money he allegedly owes to Curren$y and Beanie Sigel. âWhen you gonna give Beans his $11 million for State Property that you didnât give him yet?â he said. âIs that a culture vulture? You did it to yourself. He had another label deal after the Roc and he signed Curren$y. Curren$y put out two albums. You didnât pay Curren$y on one song, B. Whoâs the culture vulture? You didnât pay him cause you didnât see how digital he was. You didnât have a computer. You were in a slipper, art coma."Â
Curren$y later echoed Flex's thoughts about Dame on Twitter. Read his tweets below.
