West Coast emcee Crooked I has requested an appearance on Funkmaster Flex’s radio show to discuss famous dj’s disparaing remarks on Tupac Shakur’s legacy.
Outside of the Outlawz, who are from New Jersey, there hasn’t been much public backlash from artists over Funkmaster Flex’s negative comments.
Crooked I, a Long Beach, California native, expressed disbelief that Flex, who revolutionized the power of the DJ in Hip-Hop, would publicly air such venomous words about a deceased legend.
“It’s straight up disrespect,” Crooked explained. “A man is in his grave. His mother is active in Hip-Hop, she don’t want to hear nobody speaking on her son like that. Especially over things that happened years ago…I couldn’t believe someone as powerful as Flex would speak on Tupac like that in the public.”
Crooked I’s entire Wake Up Show Radio interview is available below three parts, courtesy of the show’s MediaFire Page. The station also airs portions of Tupac’s famous interview with Sway four months before his death.
