Former Hot 97 radio personality DJ Clue and Funkmaster Flex sparked a publicized beef last night (March 20) in light of a new Nicki Minaj record which was supposedly slated to debut on rival radio station Power 105.1.
After some boasting on Flex's behalf, Clue took to Twitter to clear the air.
"So this Fat Old dude saying he hacked my email & took a record that never got emailed to me? #CompulsiveLiar," he tweeted March 20th.
"I know one thing I'm first in ..The Ratings #1 at Nights 6-10 pm & rated higher 7-12pm Hold That! http://instagr.am/p/IaWqGLwXQ4/" (DJ Clue's Twitter)
This then led to Flex taking to his weeknight show and airing out Clue.
"I get the records in this town first! ... This radio thing is NOT your arena, ok? ... People only put their faith in you 'cause they hope that you're the next Flex!... You can't keep up with me, boy! ... Fam, you got about 2 wins in 52 weeks and that's what you get hyped for? You been losing for so long that that's what you get hyped for? ... Who you mad at, me or you, man? ... I been doin' this a long time. You can't beat me at it, man. You make yourself sound stupid braggin' about two weeks out of 52. Really? That's what you got? ... My radio game is at level 20. Boy you betta go back to the drawing board 'cause you lost tonight. ... Classic loser status. ... I know he's good at what he does, man, but he ain't better at this right here. ... Now don't let me have to talk to you like this again. You clown. ... You listen to me good -- I aint hold this crown for so many years for some boxhead cornball to get a record tonight that you thought you was gonna get. Now you just shut up. OK? ... How many times does this have to happen to you, Charlie Brown?? You'll never kick the football!! NEVER!! ... Hot 97, I reign supreme nationally in this radio thing! Let me know if you want a lesson."

As the story goes, Minaj's new "Beez In The Trap" was supposed to debut on Clue's weeknight show.
Funkmaster Flex went on an epic rant earlier tonight (March 20th). It seems Hot 97's longtime HDJIC was peeved that DJ Clue--who handles his business at rival Power 105.1--was popping ish the previous night over besting Flex in the ratings. Then there was more chatter, amongst the bomb drops, about who gets records first in NYC (Flex claims he bogarted dropping Nicki Minaj's "Beez In The Trap" first) and all that. (Hip Hop Wired)
After an extensive stint at Hot 97, Clue left the popular station for rival Power 105 back in 2006.
Clue left radio station Hot 97 nearly four years ago. Clue will now take the helm of the 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. slot at Power 105 in direct competition with Hot 97's renowned veteran Funkmaster Flex , who holds down the 7 p.m. - 12 a.m. slot. (The Free Library)
