During a recent interview on Rap Radar’s “Cigar Talk,” Funkmaster Flex spoke on his involvement in Drake and Meek Mill‘s infamous 2015 beef. Citing how he wanted to be part of a moment, the Hot 97 radio host said, “I gotta be honest, I kind of bit that whole routine, or my involvement. I was copying, watching Red Alert and MC Shan and KRS-One…And I watched people throw the flame on it and I said, ‘If I throw the flame on it, this can be one of those.’…I ain’t gonna lie, I wanted to be in the history book like Red Alert and Shan and KRS-One.”

Funkmaster Flex famously played a reference track for Drake’s “10 Bands” to back up Meek’s accusations of the Canadian artist having ghostwriters. The move would push Drake to respond with diss tracks “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” which would eventually would be met with Meek’s “Wanna Know” after a failed premiere on Hot 97. Flex noted. “You know what, Meek was always in a cheerful phase, he wasn’t overly stressed. Because I think he wasn’t. It was funny…when I didn’t have the record, I wanna say I feel maybe me and Meek must have had miscommunication on the song, or what it was gonna be.” If what Flex says is true the failed premiere was all because of a miscommunication between himself and the Philadelphia rapper regarding the date.
