Funk Flex Argues Drake Is Better Than Jay-Z
Just days after Fatboy SSE asserted that Drake is a bigger artist than Jay Z musically, Funk Flex seems to have also backed up the claims. There have been a longtime debate on who’s better between HOV and Drake and it appears this sentiment will never end.

Some years back, reported reference tracks for Drake surfaced and caused controversy for the OVO rapper, and in a recent interview, Funk Flex stated that Drizzy would be the greatest rapper of all time had that not happened.

“He’s too versatile, his melodies, he has the bars, and he had the songs,” Flex said while on Million Dollaz Worth of Game. “If those reference tracks had never happened, Drake would have been my favorite artist of all time.” He was asked if that was his choice over Jay-Z. “He would have surpassed Jay-Z in my book. If there was no reference [tracks].”

He was repeatedly questioned and Flex doubled down that he believes Drake is better than Jay-Z, but “the reference tracks changed me.”

Funk Flex also spoke about Drake’s infamous 2009 Hot 97 freestyle where the rapper was criticized for not memorizing his lines or spitting bars off the top of his head. “You know that freestyle where Drake’s reading off the Blackberry? Imma tell you a story to that I never told nobody,” said Flex.

“Me and Drake, we practiced that verse in the room already. He didn’t need the Blackberry because we practiced in the room with no Blackberry. So, when the camera came out, he pulled out the Blackberry,” he said. “You wanna know why? Because as a rapper, if you look at a guy with a Blackberry you go, oh, he must have wrote those words.”

“He already knew the words when me and him were practicing in the room,” Flex continued. “‘Oh, the camera’s out? Let me show you this Blackberry as if I wrote these rhymes.’ He didn’t write those freestyle rhymes on my show! I knew he didn’t write it.”
