Funkmaster Flex called DJ Clue a “wack DJ” while speaking with ThisIs50 this week.
The Hot 97 host tried to encourage Clue to “get better” and said he definitely doesn’t want to battle him. “I respect Clue. [He’s] a good guy. But you know what he has trouble with? He’s a wack DJ,” Flex said. “He should make an effort to change that perception.”
Flex went on to explain how he’s pegged for talking too much and how he is conscious of that. He believes Clue should take the “wack DJ” criticism into consideration and begin sharpening his skills. “When the battle stuff comes up, they’re doing that to you because they know you’re wack on the set,” Flex continued. “If you do not take your craft serious enough to practice at it, then it’s cool. It’s no diss to him. He’s a mixtape DJ and he’s a great producer.”
Flex said Clue should just focus on getting better at DJing at shows and on-air. He also explained that he came up at a time where you had to be good to compete with some of the legends of his day including DJ Red Alert, Chuck Chillout, Kid Capri, and Marley Marl. “That’s an era of guys that have pride of what their quality was that night,” he said.
