American DJ and record producer, Aston George Taylor Jr, professionally known as Funkmaster Flex has argued that Jay-Z isn’t as creative as Grammy award-winning rapper, Drake.
Despite not been in good terms with the God’s Plan rapper, Funkmaster Flex put his feeling to the side when acknowledging Drake for his influence in hip-hop over the past decade.
He made this claim during an interview on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, hosted by Gillie Da King.
“I been in a lot of clubs and I played a lot of records. And I’ve been in a lot of big rooms and I’ve played a lot of concerts,” Flex said to Gillie before comparing Drake to Jay-Z. “You know in a set of 3,000 people, you can play 15-20 Drake songs back-to-back tomorrow. I can’t play 20 Jay-Z [songs] back-to-back. I can’t.”
Funk’s claim didn’t sit well with Gillie who argued that “Jay-Z been out for 40 years.” Flex replied to this by explaining that Drake is a transcendent talent.
“For some people who absorb music. … Drake is Michael Jackson to some of these kids,” Flex continued. “Hov ain’t as creative as Drake.”
In the past Funkmaster and Drake have been at loggerheads after he questioned Drake’s pen game following his infamous beef with Meek Mill.
Known to be controversial, Funkmaster Flex recently, took a swipe at Jay-Z.
He called Jay-Z “sensitive” and attacked the Empire State of Mind rapper for aligning himself with Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez. He claims that Perez was able to receive a pardon because Jay is “moving with” Trump, though he did not provide any actual proof for the claim.
“The part I have a problem with is the Trump, Jay-Z moving with him,” Flex said in a rant last week. “Business with Trump and what Trump supports.”
