This weekend, Funkmaster Flex took to the airwaves to deliver a rant detailing his beef with Jay Z. Flex said that Jay Z stole his app ideas and prohibited him from playing Dipset records at Jay’s 40/40 club. (Cam’ron and Jim Jones also responded in a new freestyle.) Most importantly, Flex interrupted his own monologue multiple times with the sound of a bomb dropping. Enter comedian Hannibal Buress, who came in today with the above point-perfect parody.
Using a lot of sound effects (farts, flushing toilets, a Street Fighter 2 "Hadouken!", the "that’s a lot of nuts!" line from Kung Pow), Buress talks about getting an email from his cousin Percy telling him to check out the rant. Then, he makes some key observations:
- "Who the fuck is stealin’ app shit from Funkmaster Flex?"
- "Why’s he rantin’ about apps?"
- "Why’s he using so many sound effects? He needs to mix up the sound effects a little bit."
- "This dude is 47 years old, 47, and he’s just pressin’ the bomb sound effect over and over. Use your words, man!"
It’s great. Here’s Flex’s original rant:
