Funk Flex & Conway The Machine Are Going Back & Forth

After Conway The Machine called out New York DJs for “gatekeeping,” Funk Flex responded to the Griselda rapper in an Instagram tirade.

Funk Flex is calling out Conway the Machine. After the Griselda member went to Instagram Live on Monday (July 11) and alleged that older New York hip-hop DJs were “gatekeepers,” including Flex and DJ Suss One, Flex made an all-caps Instagram Post calling Conway a “sorry lyricist.”

“@whoisconway hahahaha!” Flex wrote. “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???”

He continued, “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!”

The veteran Hot 97 DJ added, “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???”

It didn’t take long for Conway to catch on. “@funkflex we doin internet posts or we gon chop it?? Lol you’re 60 years old bruh tell me when I’m wrong,” Conway replied.

Conway might also be feeling slighted after New York-based journalist Brian “B. Dot” Miller listed his favorite emcees of 2022, excluding Conway who released his latest album God Don’t Make Mistakes in February.
