The first of six consecutive Summer Sixteen Tour dates in NYC popped off Thursday evening at Madison Square Garden and Drake, rocking a Knicks colorway OVO jersey, took the opportunity to send some shots at Hot 97 and Funkmaster Flex specifically.
UPDATED with video above .
Flex of course heavily involved himself in the Drake/Meek Mill conflict last year, taking to the airwaves to leak those Quentin Miller reference tracks and to call into question Drake’s ability as a writer.
Drake for real said “fire Funk Flex and then I’ll do your show” 😳

More recently, Ebro told a story about a conversation he had with Drake regarding the possibility of Eminem dissing him over the Joe Budden half-beef and Drake’s planned response. Ebro later recanted the story so I’m not sure how much, if anything, that has to do with Drake’s comments Thursday night.
Either way, Flex says he has a story to tell when he goes on-air this coming Saturday.
