Last night, in NYC at Madison Square Garden, Drake and Future kicked off their Summer Sixteen set to a packed house and according to many witnesses in attendance, the “6 god” had some choice words for Hot 97 as well as Funkmaster Flex. Drake’s Thursday night’s jabs come as no surprise since the last year there has been bad blood between Drake and the station following Funk Flex releasing reference tracks as the result of the well-documented beef between Drizzy and Meek Mill. It looks like Hot 97’s Ebro Darden is now getting into the mix and responding to Drake’s alleged “f*ck Hot 97” diss.
Following Drake’s set Thursday night, footage captured him saying “You see, they telling lies on Hot 97. That’s how it goes. I told em’ fire Funk Flex and then I’ll come and do your show. Plus, me and Kanye just left out the studio. It's my first night in the Garden and feeling like D.Rose.”
Hot 97’s Ebro Darden and crew weighed in with their opinion of the situation early Friday morning, and according to them, while Drake did make references to the rumor Ebro started with regards to him coming for Eminem, he was not recorded saying “F*ck Hot 97” like initial reports suggested by Complex.
Additionally, Darden went on to clarify his remarks suggesting that Drake was gunning for Eminem, and shared with listeners that his comments were a bad joke that was taken out of context. The team also touched on Drake’s strained relationship with the Hot 97 Kingpin, FunkFlex, and let it be known that the DJ of 25 plus years would not be going away anywhere, anytime soon, even with the insistence of Drake.
