Dame Dash Responds To Funkmaster Flex, Disses Lyor Cohen


(AllHipHop News) Two of the most outspoken individuals in Hip Hop are now in each other’s verbal crosshairs. This past Tuesday (June) Dame Dash responded to Funkmaster Flex’s on-air diatribe against the former Roc-A-Fella boss.

During The Funkmaster Flex Show on Hot 97, Flex defended former Def Jam President Joie Manda against Dash’s claims of Manda being a “culture vulture.” Dash wasted no time and went directly to his personal Instagram account to address Flex’s defense of Manda and issue a way Flex and Dash can settle their disagreement:

Hey @djfunkflex would not have an issue with another man over another man… I believe a man should speak up for himself and I really hope you would never desrespect me over another man I’m 43 so what I will do is give you an interview live where you can ask me any question you want and joi can as well

The following day, Dash went back to his accusatory ways and lamented another former Def Jam President as a culture vulture. In the caption of an photo of Jay Z, Dame Dash, Russell Simmons and Lyor Cohen, Dash attempts to assassinate Cohen’s character:

Look how happy the culture vulture Lyor Cohen looks to be getting money off all of us and our authentic experiences… We’re all mad cause we can’t make money of his him cause he never did anything cool ever…I wonder what sell out from our culture that has been employed by them for years is gonna stick up for him like @djfunkflex did for that clown joi It’s funny how they try to make us fight each to take the focus off them robbing the us…

Earlier this year in an interview with Details Magazine Dash stated that “every single person I see hanging around” Jay Z is “making money off him” and included Lyor Cohen in that list of people.

Check out Dash’s response to Funkmaster Flex and diss to Lyor Cohen on Instagram below:

Lyor Cohen

Look how happy the culture vulture Lyor Cohen looks to be getting money off all of us and our authentic experiences… We’re all mad cause we can’t make money of his him cause he never did anything cool ever…I wonder what sell out from our culture that has been employed by them for years is gonna stick up for him like @djfunkflex did for that clown joi It’s funny how they try to make us fight each to take the focus off them robbing the us…Old trick and I m not going for it… Let’s keep the focus on them… The divide conquer game is over… I’ll deal with @djfunkflex later

Funkmaster Flex

Hey @djfunkflex would not have an issue with another man over another man… I believe a man should speak up for himself and I really hope you would never desrespect me over another man I’m 43 so what I will do is give you an interview live where you can ask me any question you want and joi can as well…I was wondering who was gonna defend him from our culture… Funny that’s is you but…but I think you should have called me out of respect…but well talk about that face to face like men…your over 40 as well

  • Guillaume Pilon

    dame is going ham on everybody

  • ancientGOD83

    When they steal and rob Us its business as Usual. Or they call it survival even the American way. When we call them out they call us racists. Then when we call out our own sellouts, some are so programmed that they respond with the good old Hater comment. As the vibration rises all will be exposed, from the evil corp masters, to the sellouts. Dame got out when he could. Expose em.

    • johnblacksad

      I didn’t know it was Dame’s choice to get out and stop making millions and have his wife leave him to flirt with Hov at galas to the point his sister in law was tryin to give him the business with a half bodyguard-half spectator in the vicinity… smh

      • Casor_G

        Yep! Corny brothers start that “divide and conquer” isht when they start hurting. Dame was loving this dude when he was getting money and flossing on other brothers but now he a “man of the people”

      • johnblacksad

        and nobody was flossin on brothers more than Dame in those videos

      • plsDontreply

        it wasnt his choice when the serpent Jigga had plans with the vipers…

      • johnblacksad

        should have had lawyers watchin lawyers so he don’t go broke

  • Casor_G

    going broke will make you mad….

    • Ipullcards

      Smh u can’t even see what he’s trying to say.. Blk ppl smh

      • Casor_G

        They weren’t “culture vultures” when he was getting money with them. Now they x him out and he has a problem. Where was the fire when he was taking that photo and popping bottles

      • plsDontreply

        dame never like Lyor, get ya facts str8. Lyor broke up rocafella by staying in Jay Ear and promising him supreme power. shame

      • Casor_G

        So Dame got mad because Lyor stopped Dame from getting money off Jay?

      • therealwayno

        Right cause Dame wasn’t working he was just there doing that little dance he used to do. LOL. Rocafella was bigger than Jay and had the potential to do way more than it did.

      • foshow38

        Rocafella was Bigger than Jay-Z?? Confused…Jay is Rocafella without him there was no Rocafella. Not one other artist on that label had anywhere near the success that Jay had.

      • Ipullcards

        You sound partially crazy. They needed dame and jay and Biggs dirty money! Facts!

      • therealwayno

        What about the movie company? State Property, Paid in Full. Armadale vodka. The clothing line. The tours they put together. The DVD’s. Dame signed Kanye. Cam. Dipset. Jay was the figurehead, visually but all those signings and people helped make Jay bullet proof. That Philly swag kept the team street. So did Dipset. UGK. Jay didn’t make all those moves solo. Jay is smart because he kept himself relevant and managed the right relationships. Jay knew who to f@ck with and when. Diddy does the same thing he just don’t get the credit cause his ass can’t rap. Rockafella accomplished a lot. And could have done more if they didn’t fall apart. Like Dre and Iovine.

      • Ipullcards

        Facts!

      • Ipullcards

        Thank you! This Uncle Tom don’t get it. Yea we gunna enjoy our money but why should the white man still get paid from our struggle that this system placed us in? We just play nice fux lyor never liked his ass anyway, I would say something anti Semitic but I wouldn’t be fair I have Jewish friends but he’s a greedy bastard

      • Ipullcards

        Damn you sound like a house nugga for real? Wtf does popping bottles hVe to do with our experiences our talent and others getting paid handsomely off it when it’s not the same vice versa in cultures? Explain that? They force us all to get down and dumb nuggas agree and just take the money. Dame is right, I may not agree with everything he says and does but he’s right. I can’t ask u to change ur mentality to understand, that’s your flaw

      • dee

        They dont understand sh!t

  • KobieDixon

    😀

  • dee

    I always said that about Lyor its just something about him

    • foshow38

      I was thinking the same thing. But with that said some of the illest rappers came from Loud records ex Mobb Deep/Wu-Tang/Big Pun/Xzibit/3-6mafia.

      • mike1994

        jay,dmx,and ja rule was suppose to be on loud records irv gotti said but lyor stole them at the last minute from steve rifkind

  • Brindle

    ?… come on Dame, weren’t you making money off him too? he scorned…

    • plsDontreply

      hater… dame got that truth serum…

  • johnblacksad

    Damn Dame!

    Didn’t fully understand what it was about but let’s say that if you have beef with FcukFlex I’m automatically siding with you… don’t ask why

    • dee

      i cosign that

    • ceeza

      Why Because Dame is likable and Funk is a wingding? I’m siding with the facts and Funk has them even if I don’t like dude.. Dame is mad that he’s clawed his way from poverty to the mountain top only to tumble back down. A lot of mogs have passed him up and he’s stuck back at the bottom being bitter.. I don’t blame him for being bitter but man he only has himself to blame.. dude blew 50 million dollars ..

  • D.White

    Fact: Dame and Biggs and their crew was making money off of Jay too. Their cash cow left and it burns his soul to see others getting it while he’s left on the outside looking in. I don’t buy him only being mad about others ruing our culture….I get the feeling its also got something to do with the fact that Jay cut him and the rest of the crew off and now he’s on the outside looking in at Jay’s continued success and he hates the fact that he’s not eating off Jay these days.

    • plsDontreply

      Jay joined their crew

      • Dubz

        Is their crew still making money?

      • D.White

        So what? Jay joined them, they ate off him, then he cut them off and now they’re all struggling to stay relevant.

    • Sean Peterson

      Real talk ^^^

    • smov

      They made money together Jay was also co-CEO of the Roc.

  • @ Dame.

    Listen very well. You made money. You had it all in your hands.
    You could have been the man owning Hip-Hop. And I’m not
    lying. You had all movements in one hand. You were Roc A Fella.
    You were Dipset and you were King of New York at one point.

    You decided to play big ego bully instead of acting wisely.
    Wasted your money on braggadocio instead of using it wisely.
    You were too lazy to read contracts and hired accountants,
    who saw how uneducated you really are.

    Now u mad!

    It’s not Lyors fault. It’s not anybody else’s fault.
    You had the power and maybe you were just not prepared.

    • Casor_G

      Surely we wouldn’t expect this brother to act responsible… Internet Scapegoats

  • GP

    Dame got the young guns song on his mind right now. Cant stop wont stop. dame just going at the world.

  • WORLD DOMINATOR

    Dame YOU made money ‘off’ Jay! That’s called ‘business’, something YOUR BROKE ASS obviously failed at! You were on JAY’s ‘gravy train’ for a few years, BUT WHAT have you done prior or especially AFTER that?! Before you try to imply racist comments on Lyor & ‘them’ eating off entertainment (ie. Jews), check yourself & YOUR attitude that caused Jay to dissolve ANY business with you & the REST of the industry (outside of those DIPSH*T losers) turn away from the DAME LAME business world! You are a bitter ignorant HAS BEEN!

    • AMIR SHAKIR

      stupid dame made jay do ur history jay was broke dame was the bread winner

      • Dubz

        So why is Dame not making money now?

      • Da Ledgendary

        who says he’s no longer making money?

      • AMIR SHAKIR

        hes not a rapper dumb ass

      • Da Ledgendary

        I’m gonna assume that response was meant for somebody else, lol. I only said “who says Dame is no longer making money?” Never mentioned him being a rapper. I was implying that Dame has other businesses that makes him good money.

      • Dubz

        He did…in court when he was going through a divorce.

      • mike1994

        i heard motherfuckers saying they made hov…made hov say ok so make another hov

      • Sean Peterson

        real talk…on that note this post is a wrapppppp..

      • WORLD DOMINATOR

        NO Jay AND Dame were broke, JAY has THE TALENT & Dame WAS a good ‘mouthpiece’ or ‘manager’, but his EGO got in the way! Jay didn’t need an ‘azzhole’ anymore & obviously NO ONE in the Industry wanted to do any deals with him. Bankrupt, more BILLS than dollars, & he’s desperately trying to stay ‘relevant’ (ie. Suge) by making ‘shocking statements’ to anyone that will listen. I don’t wanna listen to this FOOL any more, YOU can waste your life debating a LOSER & HAS BEEN that hasn’t been involved in ANY kind of a hit in over 10 years!

      • AMIR SHAKIR

        NO LIKES NO 1 BELEAVE U

    • Da Ledgendary

      Where in his statements did he say anything about race? The other day he also called out Steve Stoute, who is black, as a culture vulture. So race has nothing to do with Dame’s issue.

      • WORLD DOMINATOR

        When Dame singled out LYOR (the only non-African American in the picture) & referred to ‘them’ : ‘wonder what sell out from our culture that has been employed by them for years’ ….. does he seem to refer to Lyor’s Jewish ethnicity as ‘them’ does he infer to blame a race like the Jews as part of his problem.

    • AMIR SHAKIR

      can u prove this statement or iz this herr say

  • Dela

    I’m so glad he got a Flex.

  • AMIR SHAKIR

    flex been a dick sucking gay ass ny nigga

    • GP

      ^^ that’s why he was mad at sister cee for getting caught up, flex know he next to be exposed!

      • V C Pittsburgh

        You wild fam. He said Sister Cee aaha

      • johnblacksad

        LMAO

  • tra mo

    But wait isn’t that Wat label heads do? Shit was all good just a week ago

  • Elayorx El

    I’m not sure how I really feel about what Dame has been doing lately, but I do know this. 50 made a comment on that SJ stage the other day. Something like, “people thought Jimmy Iovine was my boss; I’m from 134th street, I ain’t never had no boss”! Or something to that effect. Thing is, Dame reminds me very much of that mentality, and I think it is very healthy to be that way. Why must one continue to be, “sonned”, and have to go through what someone else went through, exactly, in order to be successful, every single, solitary time? Although I think the similarity stops there with the two of them, as Dame has always been a little more culture oriented. The Roc, would not have been the Roc, without all parts involved, down to the secretaries. The, “shiny ball syndrome” Jay produces, always seems to affect those who don’t want to know more about the ins, and outs. Ain’t nobody bigger than the culture, NOBODY! Unless your name is Michael Jackson, and only then I say that trying to find the exception to the rule. Dame, you should say no more on these subjects, and get crackin with that book fam! It’s still the Roc!(pyramids up)

    • bisolabliss

      Can’t wait for that book either

      • Elayorx El

        No doubt, fam.

  • IceBergSlim

    I’m with Dame on this..all those suckers do is eat off the culture they have added nothing to it and I mean nothing the only cat that I see that is cool in the game is interscope label head Jimmy Lovine..since 1990..Dr.Dre’s Mentor who has been behind him from the beginning of the start of aftermath records

    • W.$.G.T.$

      Nah, only difference between Jimmy & Lyor is money. Jimmy way more breaded, but other than that these cats is one in the same.

    The only book I’m eagerly looking forward to from anyone within the culture is one from Dame, word!

    • ceeza

      That sums up Dame in a nutshell.. He is about 90% to completely wrong in this “beef” but i still come away liking him.. Funkflex is speaking some harsh truths and facts but I still come away thinking he’s a wingding.. Why would you do business with Dame? you wouldn’t..

  • Biz

    Gotta love Dame, don’t get it twisted Dash isn’t talking out of desperation he has been saying this for YEARSSSSSSS. I support Dame! (The last real CEO of hip hop) they need street named after Damon Dash.

  • Black Panther

    Funkmaster Flex is a fukkn Coon, a uncle Tom ,a house nigga and last but not least a fukk nigga!!. We need to rid our community of these sell outs. Flex is buffin that “jew” Knob. He actually put himself on the spot by involving himself, thus solidifying his spot and loyalty to the “jews” whom are behind the curtains pulling the strings. Dame Dash is talking some real shit, we should be in control of the program since we are the ones most affected(Negatively) by the music . The “jews” have been controlling and manipulating the “black” community from day 1 in good ol Amerikkka. The “jews” funded, controlled and profited from the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade aka African Slavery in the USA. The “jews” own most of the section 8 houses in the ghettos throughout Amerikkka, Most of the Judges in America are “jews” because you have to be a lawyer to be a judge and “jews” are bred to be lawyers 90% of the time. Hence Private Prisons aka modern day slavery, cheap labor(10 cents a hour) to produce products for companies such as Dell, Nike & Victorias Secret just to name a few. Its a real Quagmire that we are in, but we can get out of it. We have to get serious about our education(Lawyers,Doctors,Engineers etc.) and start practicing group economics(Spend your money with black businesses only) like we did in the past (Black Wall Street, Harlem Renaissance). Most of these sports teams are owned by these same “jews”. Just stating the facts. We dont need a leader anymore, all they gone is kill him/her. Just look out for your own first and last. BLACK POWER! BLACK POWER! BLACK POWER!!!!!!! #ControlYourDestiny #Blackpower #FUNKFLEXCOON. Stand for nothing, youll fall for anything!
