Twitter Has Mixed Reactions To Lil Yachty Funk Flex Freestyle
Did it float or sink?
Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex and Lil Yachty have long been at odds, with Flex throwing shade to 20 years, more than once during the last year. The two seem to have set aside their differences, at least for the moment, because Yachty dropped by the studio to drop a freestyle for the veteran DJ.
Flex recently called Yachty as an example of a wack rapper on Instagram and was apparently impressed by Lil Boat, not only responding, but also showing up to the studio.
"At least I can say that it did, while I had stayed at home wishing I did" Yachty said before falling to two-minute plus freestyle over Mike Jones' "Still Tippin'" instrumental.
Yachty not too diverse, or topically, dropping bars like, "Young nigga I'm a prince, I could have bought a house in Bel-Air," and "I don't even watch sports, but the courtyard of my home as a golf course." Yachty has never claimed to be a lyrical phenom and apparently, that was not its objective. He showed it to demonstrate that not only is able to hold his own on the mic, but also willing to back down from a challenge.
Online response for the freestyle was mixed. Take a look at an example of the following reaction.
Lil Yachty was rappin on that beat with no flow or rhythm was rappin as a white person dancing .. Funk Flex should be ashamed for having that shit
