This week, Funkmaster Flex released a fresh new remix of Lorde‘s smash hit “Royals” featuring a verse from the teflon don, Rick Ross. Personally I kinda vibe with this song. Ross’ voice definitely doesn’t clash with the beat, and the verse isn’t half bad, as far as Ross verses go.
The remix did draw some criticism, however.
rick ross spitting a verse on lorde's "royals" rmx is all kinds of ironic. just gon slap some greed & vanity on the anti-greed & vanity song— Nitty Scott, MC. (@NittyScottMC) October 28, 2013
Let us know what you think of the “Royals” remix in the comments section.
In the past week Funkmaster Flex had some sick guests, from Compton’s Kendrick Lamar to G.O.O.D. Music’s Common, Pusha T, Big Sean, and CyHi Da Prynce they all were in there spitting insane bars. Up first to flow was Kendrick Lamar, where he maliciously spit over Biggie’s classic instrumental “Who Shot Ya”- while some of his “freestyle” is from a verse he laid down on an older trackwhen he was still known as K.Dot, overall the freestyle is still pretty raw. Next freestyle cypher was the G.O.O.D. Music team, where a handful of the supergroup flowed exquisite bars. While Big Sean and CyHi Da Prynce rapped most of the eleven minute video Common still threw down a fair amount as well over the dope beat selection by Flex (“Who Shot Ya” “What We Do” & “Shook Ones (Part II)”). Wish Pusha had spit something as well but eh, you win some you lose some. All in all both videos are pretty tight, check em’ out below;
Wiz and his Taylor Gang entourage stopped by the Funkmaster Flex show to promote his new mixtape, Taylor Allderdice. Even though Wiz stutters a little bit, he spits some dope bars from his upcoming tape over a smooth beat. He also announces the potential release of a Taylor Gang album! Peep it below. Also be sure to check out the tracks “Morocco” and “Mary 3x” which were released in the last couple of days.
Earlier today, French Montana and Chinx Drugz recorded a freestyle for Funkmaster Flex‘s Hot 97. Montana murders the beat with lyrics like, “Underrated is an understatement, I got old money probably in your mother basement”, showing he is going hard in the motherf**king paint for this freestyle.
