Funk Flex got Black Thought of The Roots to fall through and freestyle, too?? MANDATORY watching… this is not up for discussion. Tariq is that BEAST emcee that your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper is not trying to see!!

Iman Shumpert | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #085 (Video)

Yoooooo! NBA players out here rapping better than many of the mainstream mumblers. Iman Shumpert is doing the work on that mic though, spitting flames like the old NBA Jams video game… He’s on FIIIIIIRE!

Small forward, Iman Shumpert makes it very clear that he’s more than just a ball player! Reppin’ Oak Park, IL, Iman comes through Funk Flex with some bars!

Mysonne Speaks On It: Meek Mill’s Going Back To Jail Is ‘Bigger Than Meek’ (Video)

Okay, everybody believes in justice. But, when it comes to fitting the punishment to the crime, how far is too far? Interesting and compelling discussion here. Mysonne & Carmen Perez speak on the pending Meek Mill jail bid as an example and jumpoff point for extended discussion on a trend of unusual punishment, the scales of justice being unfairly tipped and more.

CyHi The Prynce Lyrically Murders This Flex Freestyle In 84 Ways (Video)

If you ever wondered if CyHi had the pedigree to run in the rap circles he does, no you know! And if you needed MORE proof that he is so A-T-L… dude said he had it locked from Douglasville to Conyers!!

You know how when Fred The Godson said that ‘to stay true’ is ‘the right thing’ in his freestyle? Well, on this The Prynce is doing the right thing for damn sure. Click play now. Let’s GO!

Taking The Knee: If Terry Crews Was Still In The League, He Would Kneel (Video)

Damn. The preview clip. Crews popped! Got a point though. Football, as we know it in The States, is pretty much just “American football”… The world doesn’t play it that way. We are ‘playing ourselves’ if we think the world gives a good van DAM about the Sunday games or whether we boycott them.

BUT… He does talk some real talk about what everyone in the WORLD would care about… human lives, liberty, love… or the lack thereof. The U.S. nor the NFL, really not loving Black people.

All that and more. Plus Terry with a great perspective on your worth as a HUMAN BEING.

Watch!

Fred The Godson | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #072 (Video)

Hard to contain myself. Know what? I’d heard that Fred The Godson was a beast, but I was not ready for him to get on with Flex and snap this hard! Let me put it this way: When heads talk about how they wish Jay-Z would go back to rapping like this or that… What they really wanna say is they want Hov to step his bars UP to Godson’s level. That’s right. Godson > Hov. Yeah, that’s today’s math! Watch.

(Shot to Jaquae for amping things up and doing the most with the hook.)

Niatia Speaks On Her Growth, Beyond ‘Lil Mama’ And Past The ‘Jay-Z MTV Video Music Awards’ Moment (Video)

Betcha that if there was no title on this post you’d be looking at the video above like… “Hmmm, who’s the Honey?” Answer: Ohhh, that’s Lil Mama? Well, it was Lil Mama. She’s claiming her ‘grown woman’ now. Call her Niatia.

Lil Mama came to visit Ebro in the Morning to have a personal conversation that touched on the backlash from the infamous VMA incident, being an internet meme, defending Chris Brown, changing her name & her new journey as an actress.

Whoa! Niatia is gonna be a stripper in an upcoming movie? Wowzerrrrs!

Sean Price’s Wife Bernadette & Dru Ha Talk About Sean P. And “Imperius Rex” (Video)

Who doesn’t love how Boot Camp and Bernadette are keeping Sean P. alive through the music and shows nowadays? We see the on stage and hear the audio releases, but now we get a chance to hear from the Clik’s honcho Dru Ha and Mrs. Price. On point, off stage, and outside the booth.

Get the whole enchilada: How Sean and Bernadette met, how the contributions to “Imperius Rex” fell into place so wonderfully and more. Too much to even preview. Plus why ruin the watch. I will tell you that you want to know how Jay-Z, Eminem and others are tied into all this.

(Remembering the Prices’ daughter’s name… Shaun Price… Plus Bernadette said Sean ‘guided her’ from above on this project. Dammit. There go the tears again!)

Meek Mill Speaks About Being In The Middle Of Several Beefs, Making Amends And Moving On To Being Grown (Video)

Alright. I’ll fess up: I barely listen to Meek Mill’s music. Got sucked into the non-rap related beefs & bullsh!t he was in and wasn’t even really a fan of any of that. But this interview… He sounds like a man who has been through some things, learned something from it, and will likely go through a little less of them. He mentions being 30 years of age, but I can tell you: The passage of years has nothing to do with attaining the wisdom they should give you. How to focus ‘thug’ energy on standing firm in the face of adversity (esp. that which you brought on yourself). Having realized that sometimes it is best to stay low instead of high posting all the damn time. Wisdom!

Of course, Meek is still about with the sh!ts. He starts the interview with some of that. But there’s less of it around to smell up the joint. Good interview!

Action Bronson | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #065 (Video)

LOL! Somebody let Bronson the bucking bull loose in the Funk Flex fine china shop, and dude cracked and stomped on all the best dishes. Can’t tell you what this is – all this – but you gotta see it. Dope!

(Flex didn’t know WTF was happening, but he was hanging on for the ride. Haahahaaa! Lights, camera, Action Bronson!)

La La Anthony Speaks On Parenting & Life Apart From Carmelo, Her Career And More (Video)

Have you SEEN La La looking so so DELICIOUS on “Power” on Starz? Have MERCY, she is so fine! Plus, an actually good actor.

LaLa breaks it down with ‘Ebro In The Morning’ on how she feels about Phil Jackson being fired, where her and Melo stand right now, and how she got her first big break.
– Hot 97

Great interview. Real talk. Gotta imagine that her radio background helps her communicate all this so well, too.

Around the 10-minute mark – even the list of friends is HOT, and ‘bye Phil-lecia’ hahaaa!

(Confirmed: La and the homie 4-IZE did ‘live together’ back in the day, just like he rapped on “How’d That Work Out?” She said it in here! Salute to the homie.)

Conway x Benny x Westside Gunn | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #060 (Video)

Everybody can’t come up here… Flex speaks truth regarding most of his recent featured Freestyles. This one especially. To hammer home the point, VERY few can come through like Conway, Benny, and Westside Gunn did in this ep.

The whole entire came through with them, didn’t they? Haa!
