As the world waits for news of DMX’s revival, Funkmaster Flex has a beef with the music industry. The legendary DJ had known Dark Man X for years and was shocked to learn that he had died of a heart attack caused by a drug overdose. The rapper’s family and friends gathered outside of the hospital where he is being treated to hold a vigil in his name, while Funk Flex opened up to Page Six about a few things on his mind.
Flex hit out at those in the industry who were similar to DMX for not doing enough to support him through his difficult times during an interview with Page Six on Monday.
“If he gets past this, I want to ask everyone that posted. … ‘Okay, are you going to go to his house now if he’s better and give him some advice?’” he raised a question. “Maybe he didn’t make a lot of money in the last five days, are you going to provide something? Or what you going to do?”
He went on to criticize artists who have shared videos and photos with DMX but haven’t taken the time to maintain a relationship with him. This gesture, in Flex’s opinion, is more self-serving than genuinely showing support.
“People can find the picture… that they had with the person that’s going through a tragedy in 30 seconds but you haven’t called that person in 10 years,” than he DMX’s tragic condition to Nipsey Hussle’s death.
“Let me see the picture of you when you went afterwards to his house because you was so concerned. I never see that picture where they go to the house,”
