DJ Funk Flex Drops the truth about real Hip Hop
The world of HipHop has evolved into such a commercial entity that now ghostwriting is another job position at a label that signs "REAL" Rappers. The most recent controversy over a G.O.A.T. taking ghostwriters for alot of projects, is Drake. As he is known for being a great performer and entertainer, his fans have been deluded into thinking hes more than that. But if you can't count how many songs the label has had written for you vs the songs you have written yourself, you have now became a court Jester. Or how DJ Funk Flex has mentioned above: a karaoke singer that can make us dance.Hahahah! Male and female rappers that don’t write is called “karaoke” with good marketing! We should dance to the music! BUT I don’t believe u on them songs!🤷🏿♂️ #JustMyOpinion— Funk Flex !!!!! (@funkflex) October 31, 2018
Not to take away from his awesome ability to write classics and hits, but when you are a battle rapper, or involving yourself in a battle rap, Ghostwriting is an automatic "L". Hands down he ate Meek Mills lunch right in front of him, but his recent beef with PUSHA T is a clear cut lost. Not to mention Funk Flex's tweet that seems to point out a major error in the battle.
DJ Funk Flex has been giving us underground music and new Hip Hop and Rap as well as RnB for a number of years and can even be considered an expert on Hip Hop and Rap. So, he is very justified and should be listened to when he named Nicki Minaj and Lil Pump amongst some of the worst artists ever. How are you going to bombard you way into a scene that you have only had mediocre success in, Battle Rapping, and think you can call the shots. This isn't your arena and where as James Prince was quiet in regards to your back and forth with Meek Mills, who also had a shaky foundation in MMG with Rick Ross at the time, had to step in to pull PUSHA off of you. Drake is an actor turned rapper so dictating rules to a decades old establishment is not his place at all.Hahahah! Dear Drake Stans! Your favorite artist has reference tracks, lost the battle to Pusha and is an “ACTOR” turned “RAPPER” telling us what the rules on battle rap should be? What words should I use/not use for the “STAN” community?— Funk Flex !!!!! (@funkflex) October 31, 2018
Now it needs to be address that Drake doesn't have many songs written for him. In fact what alot of artists do not tell you, is if your friend gives you one line out of 48 bars then by law you can attribute him as a writer on your song. This is what alot of rappers mean by letting their friends eat as well. But when you are not playing in your league you do not get to place the rules.
And with that said, DRAKE STANS TAKE THAT "L"
