Earlier this year, Funk Flex made headlines for naming a few head-scratching artists as “wack rappers,” including Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, and Lil Pump. While some may agree with Flex, many took issue with his inclusion Nicki on the list. Yesterday, Flex shook things up again by saying that Travis Scott stole A$AP Rocky’s style. Both braided rappers have been compared in the past, more for their appearances than their music. The claims originally started out innocently, with Flex tweeting, “Bunch rappers stole Asap Rocky’s swag! Think they slick!” Things quickly took a turn as he called out Travis as one the main biters Rocky’s swag.
Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg took issue with Flex’s comments and, though he agreed that Flacko is “an underrated icon that has been copied a lot,” he says Rocky should be able to relate to La Flame since Travis’ sound has been bitten more than anybody as late. Rosenberg heavily questions Flex’s intentions with his posts, saying that in order to drive people to his Instagram comments, he is creating a “fake beef” between two “awesome, important, great artists.” Rosenberg gives Flex a lot credit for his personal success in the business but is skeptical his recent tactics.
