It’s been a crazy past few days with all the Meek Mill and Drake beef going on via Twitter. Earlier tonight, everyone downloaded the Hot 97 app/tuned into the radio station, waiting patiently for Meek’s response to Drake’s diss track, “Charged Up” (released over the weekend on OVO Sound Radio via Beats 1.) Unfortunately, Funkmaster Flex promised a time for the diss track and didn’t deliver. But it’s far from over.
According to Complex, a very pissed off fan, Azeem Khan, started a petition to force Funkmaster Flex from his position at Hot 97. After not delivering on his promise of Meek Mill’s anticipated response to Drake’s “Charged Up” diss track tonight, fans and detractors alike have been at Flex’s head about what they perceived as deception from the legendary DJ. The petition has a very strong mission statement that claims that tonight’s stunt was “the last straw,” and they want Flex off air for good:
“This fraud of a DJ decided to lie to everyone for ratings and downloads of the Hot 97 app that Meek Mill would be on tonight to release a diss track to Drake to no avail. No one has given Hot 97 two hours of listening time since Biggie was alive, and it’s a crime to have taken that from us. The people have spoken and it is time for Funk Flex to step down.”
The petition already has already received 3,000 supporters in less than 30 minutes. Will Flex respond by dropping more bombs? We’ll just have to wait and see.
