Legendary New York DJ Funk Flex often finds himself at the center of hip-hop turmoil when he divulges his opinion on the state of the genre, which usually comes in the form of his infamous rants. He recently inflamed fans when he went off about wack rappers and included Lil Pump, G-Eazy, and the one and only Nicki Minaj; which of course set off her legion of "Barbz."
On Monday (Apr. 2), Flex set off another major debate, this time tweeting that a bunch of rappers stole Asap Rocky's swag. It was a tweet that Rocky himself agreed with, tweeting "FLVCKO FACT" with bomb and sunglasses emojis. Fans pressed Flex to elaborate on which rappers specifically and he readily obliged. "Oh? U want names? First name: Travis Scott !!! Who else y’all think?" the Hot 97 DJ tweeted.
Many fans noted that their music is nothing alike. In fact, some people have remarked that other rappers are stealing Travis Scott's sound. Some fans, however, did agree that in a fashion sense that Flex may have a point. Fashion is usually important to Harlem natives and it's no secret that Rocky has made himself a staple in that world appearing in major magazines like Vogue, Elle, and GQ, and as the face of major fashion house Dior.
Whether there's any stealing of swag, A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott have previously denied any rumors that they have a beef with one another.
