Funkmaster Flex May Not Do Another Season Of "This Is Hot 97"


(AllHipHop News) Funkmaster Flex was a star in reality before reality TV was even conceived, but that does not mean he is comfortable with the medium.

During a recent interview with Grantland, the verbose DJ spoke on his disinterest in returning for a second season of This Is Hot 97. Flex expresses his appreciation of what VH1 has done for the HOT 97 TV show, but is not interested in furthering his role:

What’s a good way for me to put it? I think VH1 put together a great, comfortable zone for us to do something cool. But I’ll be honest, it’s not something I plan on doing again.

When the Grantland writer informed him that it would probably be difficult for a Hot 97 TV show to continue without him, Flex succinctly answered with an “absolutely right”.

This is not the first time a member of This is Hot 97 has given their involvement in the show a deadline. During a recent interview on CulturedApproved’s Inside The Laugh, Ian Gelfand (Executive Producer) explained that  his involvement in the show will probably not pass two more seasons:

I love it and I will always love it and it’s one of my two favorite projects I have ever done in my entire life. It’s really funny at times. But, you know after you do it a couple of know, I’ll do another season, maybe two and then you want to do the next thing.’

The season finale of This Is Hot 97 airs tonight on VH1. Check out the full article on This is Hot 97 from Grantland here.
