Funk Flex recently sat down for an interview with HotNewHipHop, where he spoke about the popularity of the more melodic style of hip-hop over the past decade.
While various artists are known for their melodic rapping style, including Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Future, Post Malone, and Travis Scott, Funk Flex believes Drake is the father of the rap-sing trend. Flex told HotNewHipHop, "Drake has really fathered this amazing style of singing and rapping. I think when it comes to Drake though he has a clearer line of this is when I’m rapping and this is when I’m singing. I don’t think they mesh as hard together in his music, but I do like it."
While Flex has been critical of Drake over the years, he admits, "I have to be honest, he’s not made too many songs I don’t like." He added, "I never want to take away from a person's creativity. He has not made many songs - I think, when we talk about Drake sometimes you have to say, 'Well, I like this one level ten, I like this one level nine, I like this one level eight.'"
