Funk Flex has responded to Conway The Machine’s commentary on New York City DJs. Late Monday night (July 11), the veteran Hot 97 radio personality went in on the Griselda rapper and blatantly told him his career was basically over.
“@whoisconway hahahaha!” he started. “Soooo? Let’s begin! Your managed by ROCNATION (JAY-Z), Signed to SHADY RECORDS (EMINEM), Distributed by INTERSCOPE RECORDS? (MAJOR LABEL). YOU AND YOUR TEAM HAVE HAD A FEATURE FROM JAYZ, EMINEM, LIL WAYNE, JCOLE, JADAKISS, TRAVIS SCOTT, FRENCH MONTANA AND MORE???
“WASN’T U ON KANYE/DONDA ALBUM? IM GONNA GIVE YOU THE ADVICE PAUL ROSENBERG SHOULD OF GAVE U! YOU’RE A 40 PLUS ‘BARS RAPPER’ SORRY LYRICIST THAT HAS HAD EVERY RESOURCE POSSIBLE!”

Funk Flex continued in all caps, “IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR ‘CAREER’ AS OF TODAY? WITH ALL THEM CO-SIGNS? I THINK U HAVE PEAKED MY GUY? WHAT U THINK (YOUR ONLY GONNA TAKE THIS AS DISRESPECT BECAUSE TRUTH MIGHT BE A BIT MUCH FOR YOU?
“SIGNED GRANDPA/WHEELCHAIR BANDIT/WARM MILK GENERAL. I MIGHT NEED A PODCAST? WHAT YALL THINK???”
He added in the caption, “@whoisconway HAHAHA! U STILL UP???? U SAID U WANTED TO DEBATE MY FRIEND???? LETS START HERE???? REMEMBER U STARTED THIS! Ps: (U AINT IN THE LOX LEAGUE????) ITS ME??? GRANDPA??? WHEEL CHAIR BANDIT??? WARM MILK GENERAL????? ANY OTHER RAPPER WANT SOME SMOKE TONIGHT???? STEP UP AND GET YOUR CRANIUM CRACKED???”
It didn’t take long for Conway The Machine to pop up in the comment section with, ‘This y’all king?” Funk replied with a few laughing emojis to which Conway said, “@funkflex we doin internet posts or we gon chop it?? Lol you’re 60 years old bruh tell me when I’m wrong.”
Conway The Machine sparked the contentious e-battle during a recent Instagram Live posted by The Hip Hop Wolf on Monday (July 11). The entire Instagram account has since been deactivated.
“New York, in my opinion, man you gotta get them old n-ggas up out the way like Flex and them n-ggas man,” he said. “You know what I mean? Them gatekeepers that you got up there man that’s trying to dictate like who, you know what I’m saying? Like c’mon bruh. Good thing I don’t need y’all n-ggas cause if I needed y’all n-ggas y’all n-ggas would be fake stifling my groove.”
(Oh and for the record, Funk Flex is 53 years old — not 60).
