(AllHipHop News) Funkmaster Flex’s verbal assault on Jay Z had a lot of people offering their opinions on the Hot 97 DJ’s decision to go at the Roc Nation boss. Jay Z’s former business partner Dame Dash was asked about the dispute during an interview with Hip Hop Motivation.
“I just have to say this was the coolest I’ve ever seen Funkmaster Flex, and I don’t know where he got that from,” said Dame. “I thought he was honest… Whatever Hot 97 plays the rest of the country plays. So if there’s a mentality that Hot 97 has – I think there will be a mentality that will follow. So I think the statements that he was making were impactful, because he was implementing a mentality.”
Dash goes on to add he does not believe Jay can respond to Flex, because as a corporate entity Shawn Carter adopted the corporate tactic of not bringing attention to issues that would not put him in a good light. Dame specifically mentioned the allegations Jay had Dipset’s music banned from the 40/40 Club.
“I just think there’d be a lot of questions that haven’t been asked before,” Dame stated. “Now if Jay does an interview they have to ask him, ‘Is it true you don’t let Dipset play in 40/40?’ And if that question is not asked, then it’s phony.”
