If you're from New York, you've been listening to the sounds of Funkmaster Flex on the legendary hip hop radio station Hot97 for over a decade. His explosions and airhorns have become ingrained into your psyche, and when you hear him on the air, you know the turnup is real.
Now, the legendary DJ is beefing with one of the most ubiquitous stars in the game: Drake. Over a year ago, Flex intimated that he had proof that Drizzy used a ghostwriter for a number of his songs. Flex built up the moment over since-deleted social media posts, suggesting that Meek Mill would be on air to discuss the controversy and respond to the Drake diss track "Charged Up." None of that ended up happening. Meek was a no show, Flex provided no explanation as to what was actually going on. Fans of Flex turned on him, with many petitioning to have him resign in shame.
Now, TMZ has caught Drake throwing shade at Flex, almost a year after the fruitless expose:

Your move, Drake.
