8,000 people (and counting) signed a petition to remove Funkmaster Flex from his position at Hot 97. Flex tweeted he had other Drake reference tracks, and when the DJ failed to deliver, some listeners grew angry.
AllHipHop spoke with the petition’s creator, Azeem Khan, who stated:
It’s one thing to be wrong by mistake, but he’s been gassing up this beef like no other. Everything is about clicks. This was straight up lying though. He’s needed to step down for a while now. I didn’t realize it would blow like this, but he should at least see what the fans really want. And that’s to not be lied to. Everyone was tuned in, and he gave us the best pump fake since Michael Jordan in the 98 Finals. His site already picked it up, and he IG’d it. That just further shows he thinks he’s really just above everyone else. And he’s not.”
