In what is turning out to be a summer riddled with rap beef, another rift has popped off on social media. This time, it’s between veteran DJ/rapper Kid Capri and radio’s resident loud mouth Funkmaster Flex.
On Saturday (June 23), Kid posted an Instagram video with the caption, “I want smoke with @funkflex.”
In the clip, he says, “You talkin’ greezy? You the best from the city? You gonna have to prove it to me now. Now, you gotta wall you gotta run through. Kid Capri. I’m calling you out. I want all the smoke. Do what you gotta do … we still family and I still love you to death but you need a spanking. You talk too crazy. You talk too crazy and I’m gonna shut you up.”

But behind the scenes, Kid was texting Flex and the Hot 97 O.G. decided to share their private messages with his 881,000 followers.
“No friendship lost!” Flex wrote in part. “Peace my brother! U can say or do whatever you feel fit as a man! I don’t answer to you bruh!”

“YOU GOT A BIIIIIIIIG HEAD FLEX, AND NOBODY SAYS ANYTHING TO YOU, so go on your radio show and talk all the shit you want, BUT WHILE YOU TALK, LOOK AT MY TIMELINE!!” Kid wrote. “Everybody knows you talk to much and you need your ass whipped on a stage in front of everybody!!!!!!
“So go ahead and talk your shit to your fans that don’t know any better, BUT THEY GON LEARN TODAY!!! and one more thing, DON’T TELL A LIE ABOUT ME AND I WONT TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT YOU!!!! @funkflex solid!”

Hahahah! Fam u alright??? damn u bitter??? DJS THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS AND SOUNDS WHEN U FALL OFF! Doggie u high???
“Killer put your shirt on??? U aight??? (Wow… I been under his skin for a minute) @kidcapri101 – you said it yourself- ‘WAS.’”
Although Flex has seemingly cooled it on his side, Capri is still fired up. On Sunday (June 24), he shared a clip of Flex behind the decks and accused him of being phony. At the same time, he’s begging him to respond and challenges him to a battle.
“When you got that face on like you killing shit!!!!!” Kid wrote. “Wack ass fraud!!! YOU CAN FOOL THESE YOUNG KIDS BUT YOU AINT FOOLING HOP HOP!!! YOU STILL HAVEN’T EXCEPTED MY BATTLE YET!! So I’m on your neck until you do!! for being disrespectful!
“IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BATTLE, THEN YOU ARE FINISHED IN THIS TOWN!!!! YOUR FINISHED ANYWAY!!!! But at least fight back!!! Tell you what, When you see me for now on, YOU KISS MY RING!! And we will be even Steven!! Slump master!!! @funkflex SAY SOMETHING CLOWN!!!”
For now, Flex isn’t saying anything.
