As of late, there have been expanding conversations about the significance of dealing with one's psychological health. We've seen a rising number of rappers tending to this issue, particularly thinking that the Hip Hop people group isn't known for urging artists to look for treatment or practice self-care. Ridge, Big Sean, Chika, and numerous others have utilized their accounts to have straightforward conversations about their struggles and cure. Several artists or influencers are controlling their own spaces via social media by limiting or stopping their comments.
Radio veteran Funk Flex thinks rappers need to suck it up. The Hot 97 host, as of late, revolted against artists who turn off comments from haters via social media. He talked straightforwardly to "p*ssy" rappers who have their "guns in the video" yet can't take remarks from the general population; also, he trashes Cardi B. Flex didn't restrain on a new episode of "Stogie Talk" and called the rappers who don't allow people to comment weaklings, and he said: "A rapper that turns his comments off is a p*ssy. He's f*cking p*ssy. You're on your phone all day talking tough, you writing your bars, you putting out your mixtape, you've got your guns in the video and you turn off your comments, you p*ssy... What kind of banana sh*t is that?" "Yo, I wanna converse with rappers," Flex started as he moved his attention to the camera. "I'mma tell you somethin'. I'mma tell you about yourself, that you turn your comments off, you p*ssy. You go to your phone, you go to the post, you see a few comments you don't like. You go, 'That's not true. He supposed to be my man, how dare he say that. I'mma go to the settings, I'mma turn my comments off.'"
One dicey part of the interview contained Flex talking about his problems with rap star Cardi B's rapping skills. "I do think Cardi B's a terrible rapper. I just do, man. She's an amazing entertainer. I love her on social media. I love the way she talks about a subject. I like her whole swag. I like everything. She's a terrible rapper, man. ... If somebody wrote it, those aren't good bars. So somebody sold you bad bars," He said. This was the most controversial statement by Funk Flex.
