Funkmaster Flex has experienced a backlash from hip hop fans after web footage surfaced of the popular DJ yelling "Fuck n----s suckin Tupac's d---, I don't suck Tupac's d---! Make some noise if you miss f---ing Biggie Smalls!" Flex has clarified his remarks, explaining that while he respects 2Pac's legacy and fans, he doesn't forget the animosity that Pac had towards him and others while he was alive--and he doesn't feel that Pac's legacy should be whitewashed and treated that it was all positive.
"Not only do I respect his music, I respect what he put down. I respect what he made happen, the records he made, the records he sold, and I know how passionate he was about his music," Flex said. "I also think that he brought a negative energy into the game with the beefing and the erratic energy and the threats....Everybody can say what they wanna say, dude didn't have no good energy towards me. He repeatedly said it, and I can't support that everything that people say about him, because I feel like that he brought brought a lot of negativity, and brought changes in the game that we now live with now and that's just the way I feel."
"My bad to his fans, but when he was here and he was pushing out all that negative energy man, on television and in the magazines...I know everybody loves the man, and you should love him, but I don't have to love him like that. I voiced it when it was going on, I voiced it when it was happening, when he said something about me on a mixtape, I said what I wanted to say; If peple are upset about it, I get it. But I don't think that energy he was saying-- about Faith [Evans], about that man's wife--I don't think that was cool."
