Drake spent 3 nights in New York City this weekend, performing at Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future and two of his most promising OVO Sound acts, DVSN and Roy Woods.
As always, it’s a huge deal when an artist of Drake’s caliber performs multiple nights in NYC, and every one of his words and moves is hung onto by thousands of fans. That proved to be true, after Drake made headlines by reigniting his 2015 feud with Funk Flex, implying to his sold out MSG crowd that he’d only perform at Summer Jam if Flex was fired.
On Saturday night, Flex responded to Drake’s comments, which came in the form of a brief freestyle, revealing the alleged reasons Drake’s camp supplied him with proof that Drake didn’t write his verse for Meek Mill‘s “R.I.C.O.” Whether or not Drake caught wind of that, he wasted no time addressing a hyped crowd at his afterparty appearance at Space Ibiza in the city. Drizzy shouted out the DJs, but not the ones playing songs “4 weeks late” on their “7-9 slot,” an obvious shot at Flex.
Last night, a few hours after Funk Flex shared a few upcoming Drake stories on his HOT 97 radio show, Drake took shots at the DJ during an afterparty at NYC club Space Ibiza following his sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. He didn’t mention Flex by name, but it was clear to whom he was referring.
“I don’t mean going and playing the songs like four weeks late and shit,” Drake began, “trying to sound cool, late night, prime time on the radio 7 to 9 o’clock, talking all that bullshit. Shoutout to the real DJs that know I’m on the real music and shit like that. Shoutout to New York City. It’s love, you already know! My name is Drake, I’m here to fuck with you tonight. Fuck the rest of that bullshit. I’m out here, you already know. Skrrt!!”
Flex’s shots at Drake perhaps did not have the desired effect, as he insulted Drake fans for wearing sandals and accused the rapper of leaking his own reference track on Meek Mill’s “R.I.C.O.” In any case, watch footage of Drake’s response below.
