Funkmaster Flex clarified his statements about Tupac Shakur’s 1994 shooting, and also insisted that Biggie would still be alive if he told the “truth.”
Flex caught hell for seemingly talking down on the dead when he said that Tupac actually shot himself by mistake in the infamous 1994 Quad Studios attack. But days later, Flex returned to Instagram Live to clarify his statements and make new ones as well.
Among the many who criticized his rants as T.I., who accused him of breaking the G-code. To that Flex responded, “I’m going to keep it the g-code right T.I. because g-code is the word that you used. When you’re carrying a pistol on you and you’re a celebrity, you know you have a problem with somebody which is none of our business, but they [were] friends. He [Tupac] said on the news that Biggie did it. Back to g-code T.I, in the grand scheme of things, we’re not supposed to call false names on anything that happens on the street. You’re supposed to take that up the issue you have with the person you have an issue with. Tupac was screaming Biggie’s name, Tupac lied bro. I know the whole ‘disrespecting the dead thing’ but Notorious B.I.G is dead also and I’m going to stay on that forever.”
Flex’s theory is similar to that of incarcerated podcaster Taxstone who suggested that ‘Pac was a snitch for the way he handled his beef. Flex’s statements are also backed up by published articles and books that say forensics showed that Tupac did indeed shoot himself while trying to pull his gun out in self-defense.
Flex was also brought to tears when he reiterated that Biggie never said anything disrespectful in response to ‘Pac’s claims that he set him up to be robbed and shot.
“[Biggie] never said nothing about him,” he said. “[Tupac] lied [and] no one wants to tell the truth. Y’all n*gaas don’t want to tell the truth. That’s not g-code. That’s liar code. I don’t give a f*ck. He lied and they shot and killed Big, killed Big because of what he said. It’s alright though, I’m cool. Whatever.”
Throughout the talk, Flex insists that he respects all that ‘Pac did musically and considers him an all-time great, but that’s where it stops.
