HOT 97 vs Drake #FireFlex
So last night was the NYC opening show of Drake's Summer 16 Tour. In typical Drake fashion, he was all up in his feelings. Drake, in what seemed to be a calculated freestyle, called for HOT97 to "fire Funk Flex". This set off a chain reaction of twitter nerds. The reaction started a twitter movement to have HOT97 fire Flex.
Yes, Drake is the hottest rapper in the game, and we saw it with the Meek Mill battle last year. The internet has Aubrey's back, but you twitter nerds are taking it too far. Drake may be Controlla (controls ya), but he doesn't control HOT97. We are talking about one of the cornerstones in NYC hip hop. Just because Drake influences your life, your Playlist, and probably your girlfriend, doesn't mean HOT97 will entertain this. All this will do is add more ratings to the Funk Flex show. Half of you twitter trolls have never even been to NYC and are calling for Flex's head. Why? Because an overly sensitive kid from Canada has his feelings hurt. This is HIP HOP! I don't get it. You kids let this guy influence you so much. I bet half of you trolls have "OVO" tattoos (smh). If HOT97 didn't fire Flex for coming at Jay-Z, rap and NYC legend, what makes you think they will for Drake.
I get it, he makes dope songs, but this man is not the end all be all. This is how Meek Mill must have felt. Why does no one call him out? He gets away with everything. Someone LITERALLY PEED on Drake. That would have ended any other rappers career, yet Aubrey gets the pass. This is the guy you want to obey and blindly follow? Well, not me and for damn sure not HOT97. Don't you have something better to do than getting an owl tattoo or listening to One Dance for the 1000th time. Get off twitter with this "Fire Flex" movement. Drake doesn't know you! He is not your boy or your BAE. He is just a guy who makes good music. Stop giving him all this power and influence.
