Funk Flex recently appeared on the latest episode of “Classics with Scoop B” to discuss all things hip hop. During the interview, the New York DJ was asked about his thoughts of a possible JAY-Z and Nas Verzuz, and if not, who he can see battling the Roc Nation boss. “You want me to tell you who would beat JAY-Z at a Verzuz? Hands down embarrass him? Busta Rhymes would spank anybody in a Verzuz,” he said. “There is no one that will beat Busta Rhymes as a solo artist in a Verzuz… Maybe it could be a tie with Missy [Elliott].”
Elsewhere during the interview, Funk Flex gave his input on Memphis Bleek’s claim that Nas doesn’t have enough hits in his catalog to compete with Hov. “Nas has enough songs, but JAY’s swagger is strong,” he began. “That’s very hard. If you’re talking JAY-Z-Nas, they’re equal in music, but JAY’s swagger on that stage might edge him out. He has a lot of swag. Nas is a weird GOAT. I think lyrically, they’re both 10s, but they’re really two different styles to me. Lyrics, Nas edges JAY-Z. Swag, JAY-Z edges Nas. That’s my personal opinion.” Check out the full conversation below.
As previously reported by REVOLT, back in June, Busta Rhymes was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2023 BET Awards. “All right. So, I’m going to wear it on my sleeve. I do want to cry,” Busta said before he broke down into tears during his speech. “I was the youngest one of the Leader of the New School,” he continued as he recalled the beginnings of his career and the impact his former rap group’s breakup had on it. The icon also spoke on fatherhood and how it pushed him to be great.
“I’m going to say I am grateful [for] the blessing that has been bestowed upon me, and this gift that I have been given, and this fire that continues to burn as a passion in my soul, that allows me to get into any situation, from the stage to collabing with whoever, and making sure that I am far from the weak link,” he continued. “Because I enjoy walking away from a situation saying, ‘I bust a**!’”
