Uncle Luke has (sort of) apologized to Funkmaster Flex and DJ Red Alert, in advance. The 2 Live Crew frontman was honored at Friday night’s BET Hip Hop Awards with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and he’s getting ahead of any drama caused by his acceptance speech.
According to Luke, the teleprompter when out, causing him to come off the top of his head during his speech. Apparently, people were misconstruing comments he said about Flex and Red Alert as shots.
However, Luke was adamant that Flex used to break his records in NYC while Red Alert is a good friend, who along with Greg Street gave him the name “Uncle Luke.”
Any questions? Besides, “What did he say?”
See for yourself below. The BET Hip Hop Awards air Tuesday (Oct. 10).
