Funkmaster Flex Talks Red Alert, Hot 97 & More On 'Juan Ep'
Funkmaster Flex takes the hot seat in the latest edition of the Juan Epstein Show to talk hip-hop history with hosts Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds. Flex takes his hosts back to the days way before he was dropping bombs on Hot 97, growing up in The Bronx down the street from Slick Rick and working as a gopher for Chuck Chillout. The live broadcast digs into Flex’s Jamaican roots, his first forays into hip-hop, the importance of Red Alert and much more. Rosenberg and Ciph drop this episode with a little primer on their discussion with the NYC radio giant.
FINALLY! 2 hours with Funk Flex live from Gallapagos in Brooklyn. Flex gives his entire history including how he came up, met and idolized Red Alert, made it to Hot 97 and much more. He even has some kind words for Dame Dash, explains his semi rocky relationship with Jay-Z, and tells an amazing story about begging Puff to put him on back in the day! WHAT?!
