Funk Flex is at it again! First, he had a back and forth with Conway the Machine. Now, he’s on to Juelz Santana. It’s been almost two years since Santana has been released from prison and Flex is wondering where the music is. Yesterday, during his evening HOT 97 slot, he called out the Harlem rapper. He suggested that he drop a song next week. He not only suggested, but he challenged Juelz to make a new song. Funk Flex really wants to hear a new Juelz Santana record in 2022 and Juelz’s response to Flex was positive. He accepted the challenge in the comments, writing “Let’s Gooo” in his story.

New Music from Juelz
Juelz has been telling his fans that he will provide new music since he got out of prison in February. He even mentioned a collaboration between himself and Lil Durk back in May. On N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs, he tells the fellow MC that he is in the studio and explained his lack of putting out music lately.
Flex vs. The Machine
The legendary DJ’s feud with Conway the Machine didn’t last long. Conway criticized Flex by saying he was an out of touch “gatekeeper” in hip-hop. In a video that was shared to social media, Conway can be heard saying that Flex and older DJs like him need to get out of the way. He claims they stunt artists’ growth and adds that he doesn’t need them anyway. Flex responded via Instagram seemingly confused. He doesn’t understand why big artists such as Conway with support from major labels such as Rock Nation and Interscope get upset with him. Flex adds that he has gotten features from the top artists such as Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, Travis Scott, and Eminem to name a few.
After all the back and forth, their dispute was settled with a freestyle by Conway over Biz Markie “Nobody Beats the Biz” beat. It’s called “RIP Steve Smith”, dedicated to the late hip hop radio pioneer who died earlier this month. Flex was happy Conway accepted the challenge and now he is waiting on Juelz.
