Funkmaster Flex says he’s no longer supporting commercial rappers after Nicki Minaj cancels her Summer Jam appearance. After receiving word that Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj had canceled her appearance at HOT 97 Summer Jam following ill remarks from on-air personality Peter Rosenberg, Funkmaster Flex was quick to express his thoughts on the rapper during his set.
Flex never referred to Nicki Minaj by name during his set, but his comments seemed to be aimed directly at the rapper.
“We ain’t fuckin’ with commercial rappers no more,” said Funkmaster Flex while playing Rihanna’s “Cake” remix. “If you lost the fuckin’ streets then it’s your fault. If you don’t go gold it’s your fault. I’m dedicated to tearing you down.”
The DJ went on to stress his plans on not supporting commercial artists by encouraging fans to Tweet him if they choose to no longer buy commercial albums.
“We gon’ show you mama. You think you didn’t sell any records this time…If you not buying no more commercial albums hit me on Twitter right now,” said Flex.
Aside from various comments made via Twitter, Nicki Minaj has yet to respond publicly to her cancellation. But according to Funkmaster Flex the rapper is scheduled to appear on his show on HOT 97 tonight (June 4).
