Criticisms over Funkmaster Flex's decision to speak on the events surrounding the 1994 Quad Studio shooting that resulted in Tupac being hospitalized with five bullet wounds, and a rivalry that laid the grounds for rap's most storied rivalry, continued to pile on on Thursday, May 4. One day after T.I. went public to blast Flex for speaking on the dead, the son of Death Row Records co-founder and former CEO Suge Knight took to social media with his own words for the legendary Hot 97 DJ.
"I saw how all of a sudden you want to speak on Suge name you b****made a** n***a. Y'all this man is in the same position as Cassie, he's Puffys b***h. 20 years later and Suge gets locked, now you come out and speak on the name? You scary and a coward," wrote Suge Jacob, in a message posted to Instagram.
Flex would screenshot and repost Jr.'s words, with a caption that invited followers to tune in to his 9 p.m. IG Live session, during which he'd follow up on a number of questions that have been raised since he's gone public. Included in his rant was the response to Knight Jr. that he promised. "I respect your opinion my brother. And I went to your Instagram page and I see you're a positive brother. And I see you working hard, and I see you're putting your whole s**t together. And I see it. And like I said, again, I know you and your dad probably had some amazing times. But i'ma keep it super 100 with you today," Flex said. "Suge Knight let greed and envy and jealousy seep into his heart, and ruin his entire empire."
