  18. yo real djs–youre a douchebag

    you can say what you want about Jeff and youre right about Jeff–he’s ill..but YOU don’t know shit about djing or you would know what funk flex is about and that theres more to djing than ill cuts..personality is the difference between good djs and legends

  21. ThE dickhead below, knows nothing about DJing, or HipHop.
    Flex put it down for not only 5 hours, but has rocked NYC for well over a decade on radio and clubs. Perifuckinid.

  24. PMD – Congrats on the Hot 97 gig, and props to you for uploading this joint. This is vintage Funk Flex, in his true form from the mid-90′s when I had the privilege of working with him. Classic hip hop from Ritz, Palladium, Mars and Tunnel days for real. Keep up the good work!

  25. That’s what I’m not talking about Pete, hitting a brother with music so dope that I’m forced to give you the following plug:

    “When I’m not downloading questionable porn like “Dyslexic midgets 3″, turning women into lesbians with what I call a “Black Myth Ruiner”, or giggling like a school girl at the irony of me defecating digested devil’s food cake on Pat Robertson’s front lawn – I’m bumping that Peter Rosenberg shit!!” lol

  29. Anyone that starts a show with Rakim is ok with me. Man Flex plays the songs that I like to listen to. I dont listen to the radio anymore but man I have to tell you this is something every dj should do every week on the radio for at least 2 hours in every city. And yes he is having fun lots of energy man. I have not checked Flex since the 90s I remember checking for his mix cds. Man Tim Dog,Pete Rock and more loving it.

  36. Dope Dope Dope Big up to all the nineties heads 4 that was the decade that was,I would like to hear jazzy jeff, yet lets not forget in the nineties where was he? I did’nt hear him, though I do have fond memories of him from when I was a kid not any micheal jackson thing going on understand not like sum o those earlier meomos above thing is jazzy jeff must be in his nineties know wat I mean aight only joking. Flex is good and his mix tape albums were the dopest an I do know wat I mean. Any way Hip Hop is dead for now, time to fill in those gaps in your collection maybe buy jazzy jeff live in philidelphia or something. Anyway who brought jazzy jeff into this it’s flex’s moment and there are better dj’s Long Live the 90′s
    PEACE!!!!!!!!! article bad boy raver 4 reel Signin out GONE.

  37. Yes I do like that era though could FLEX have mixed 2007 Rap,no? Some of the freestyles on his albums were cool, I dig, though some were pretty lame, 2 be honest come 2 think of it a lot of the Hip Hop was pretty lame. Not that I’m criticising or anything cos’ some of the best times in the 90′s were spent smoking a big fat spliff, oh and listening to Rappers kill each other over the mic-in your dreams big boy, and lets be honest most rappers are laughable when it comes to their so called gangster lifestyle cos’ it aint very pleasent when you have to deal with real life scenarios is it? So BIG UP ALL THE REAL HEADS.And CHILL! Most Entertaining
