DJ Funkmaster Flex is stirring up controversy once again, this time claiming that Canadian rapper Drake is better than Jay-Z.
“He’s too versatile, his melodies, he has the bars, and he had the songs,” he told the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast. “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].”

They also talked about Drake’s infamous 2009 Hot 97 freestyle. “You know that freestyle where Drake’s reading off the Blackberry? Imma tell you a story to that I never told nobody.
“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. 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.”
