DJ Funkmaster Flex launched another verbal assault on Jay-Z, again. The last time Flex went after Jay-Z, he made a lot of strong accusations against the rapper. A few days ago, Flex accused Jay-Z of stealing his phone app idea. According to Flex, he did an interview for Jay’s Life + Times website a couple of years ago. During the interview, he was asked about his digital endeavors, his “In Flex We Trust” website, and his Flex phone app.

The DJ believes Jay-Z used the information from his interview to launch his 2013 album Magna Carta Holy Grail. Jay-Z’s phone app allowed Samsung customers to digitally download his album for free. “They do this interview after I drop my app. Asking me a lot of key questions about apps. Building apps; how, why, how’d you launch it?” Flex continued, “But all of that didn’t get put in the story, though. But a lot of that information got put into that new Jay-Z app.” 

As if accusing Jay-Z of stealing his phone app idea wasn’t enough, the DJ is upset about a text message the rapper sent him. Apparently, Jay-Z capitalized his own name in a text to Flex. The DJ delivered his issues with the rap mogul over the airwaves at Hot 97, “In 2015, you are a commercial, corporate rapper that drops a little catchphrase every three months. There’s nothing wrong with that. I think that’s super dope.” Flex adds, “Don’t talk to me funny in the text, bruh. I don’t work for you. Don’t you ever capitalize your name in my phone no more, bro.”

Flex continued his rant by saying Jay-Z is no longer the “King of New York.” Flex believes he is the one who holds the crown now because he’s on the radio everyday. The DJ added that the radio station, Hot 97, “doesn’t care or need Jay-Z to succeed.” Flex’s direct messages towards Jay-Z intensified. Flex said, “We are not scared of you” and “if you ever plan on taking a shot like that at me or any sublim (sic), I will be on this radio every day going at you.” So far, Jay-Z has not, and probably will not, respond to DJ Funkmaster Flex’s verbal attack.
