1. AUDIO: Funkmaster Flex Premiering Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Otis" on Hot 97.


    It's all "Otis" all the time right about now. The dust may still be settling on public and critical reaction to Jay-Z and Kanye West's latest. But around here at least one thing's for certain: the audio of Funkmaster Flex premiering "Otis" - dropping his signature bombs, rewinding to exhaustion, chiding other rappers not named Jay and Kanye ("You rappers only breathe during certain times of the year. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!"), and talking maaaaad shit ("YOU WILL NEVER WEAR THE CROWN... you can CLEAN it - PAUSE!") - has all but dwarfed the actual experience of listening to "Otis" itself. Easily a Flex hall-of-fame moment. If you didn't catch it live last night listen below. And know this: THIS IS SERIOUS, NEW YORK CITY!

      Jay-Z has kept the lights on @ Hot 97 for 15 years +. Flex was HARD when spinning this. Blue Balls. Next year's Summer "Jay" Jam will be Zoophilia.

      Back to talk my shit: How Flex gonna shit on Nas + Common/ Nas + Rae's heaters? Nas shouldn't have to push his album back, LOL. It's 2002 all over again. Let the best vet win. "Watch The Throne" guys are lucky Masta Ace and MF Doom didn't get reckless and push up their project to NOW. ~ B-Girl Talk Her Shit Too.

      he has to be on something...

      well... we know he's ON something... but i think he's also on some substance... or i hope he is....

      Flex is the man - a national treasure. We've said this elsewhere today, but he's hands down the greatest DJ to ever SPEAK IN ALL CAPS.

    5. I.Born. ALLAH

      I remember Fridays at the Palladium, Flex killinG it, HOV at the Bar. This is nothinG new. Where have yall Been. Destruction 2 haters. Cant wait 2 hear the other records. PEACE.

    6. PKNY

      Flex is completely ridiculous on this, much more entertaining than the record itself.

      That has to be the funniest shit I've ever heard. I ain't never heard him bring shit back for 20 minutes. The song is already hard, he made it seem epic. "...You can never have the crown. You can clean it and polish it, pause..." Are you really still makin' pause jokes with what you got goin' on up there? Really?...

    8. Champ

      Pure Trash. Flex especially. These cats are real cornballs. NY stand down. Epic fail. Otis rolling over.

      Just got back from putting my hand in bodega's cash register..what i miss?

    10. Vladimir

      like....what is he really talking about? Flex taking the nonsense hype to a new level.

    11. Ph

      I come back time and time again to listen to this cornball. Makes me laugh every time.
