Hot 97 radio veteran Funk Flex is with the smoke on Hump Day. The hip-hop personality has singled out a grip of hip-hop artists following a now-viral clip of music mogul Diddy suggesting there are too many rappers in the music biz.
Funk Flex went to Instagram Wednesday (February 28) to not only co-sign Puff Daddy’s comments but blast some of today’s biggest entertainers from Lil Pump and G-Eazy to Young Money’s Nicki Minaj.

Earlier in the day, Dipset’s Juelz Santana publicly co-signed Diddy’s heartfelt clip by reposting it onto his IG page.
“So many people rapping right now. I love it. It is literally too much. It’s a lot to take in everyday. Everybody saying the same sh*t in different ways. It’s just my opinion. I’m not knocking nobody’s dream. I just don’t want the culture to get diluted where it gets so mass produced it doesn’t mean anything. Artists have to be special. Every artist has to be unique. I’m just trying to say if you’re going to be in this game be great because you can also be a part of the noise. All you inspiring rappers out there and R&B artists and singers and dancers, keep doing your thing. Be special.”
Coincidentally, Cash Money boss Birdman recently called Nicki Minaj the greatest female rapper of all time.
“Nicki’s been working. That’s all I can say. She’s been working and she’s focused. I always say she’s the best ever, best female ever in hip-hop, hands down, facts. There’s no getting around it. I just think she’s focusing on her new project. … There’s levels to this sh*t. Very much levels to this sh*t. She’s an elite. Sometimes, you can put Nicki in a room with males on a rap, but if you put her on females, it’s nothing. She’s a monster in her own race. She’s just a special talent. I’m blessed to have her a part of my team. She’s a special talent I’ve never heard before.” (Rap-Up)
Recent reports claimed Lil Pump officially joined forces with Atlanta rap veteran Gucci Mane.
A couple of days ago, reports suggested that Pump has signed with Gucci Mane’s newly established 1017 Eskimo Records after a video of the rapper wearing a “1017” surfaced on social media. Dooney Battle, co-founder of entertainment company Tha Lights Global who is largely responsible for Pump’s success, revealed the news through an Instagram story earlier today (Feb. 9). It’s a video of Lil Pump Facetiming with them and showing off his 1017 chain. “Signing Day, Lil Pump signing day,” Dooney and his friend can be seen shouting out. (Hip Hop N More)
