Funk Flex's latest rant against Drake leads to his own Twitter roast.
Coming at Drake will lead to immediate viral notoriety. That's why many of his rivals choose to avoid beefing in the spotlight or at least are very careful when they do decide to take a shot. Not Funk Flex. The veteran HOT 97 DJ seizes just about every opportunity he has to come at the OVO boss. Flex is now trending on Twitter due to his rant in response to Drake's headline-causing Instagram photo with Jennifer Lopez, which shows the two of them cuddled up, basically confirming dating rumors.
The photo happened to implicate another man with whom Drake has had a long and tumultuous history: Diddy, who dated J. Lo many moons ago. It turns out that Drake's new Instagram picture arrived exactly 17 years after the infamous Manhattan nightclub shooting that would mark the end of Puffy and J. Lo's relationship. Perceiving Drake's pic as a veiled diss toward his fellow New York vet, Flex immediately sided with Diddy and clowned Drake for his attempt to use a woman as ammo in a rap beef.
Flex's latest rant didn't win him much respect on rap Twitter, though. Many saw his clap back as evidence of his old age and growing disillusionment, whereas others roasted him for seeming to take credit for Diddy smashing J. Lo all those years ago. Now Flex is no stranger to Drake's online fan army, but he had to expect this type of backlash with his latest outburst. Is Flex brave for continuing to go after Drake, or is it about time he got his name out of his mouth? Here's what Twitter had to say...
