Funk Flex uses Cardi B's tough demeanor as a teachable moment for "The Fellas."
Calling Funkmaster Flex an instigator is somewhat of an understatement. Let's be clear on something, Funk Flex is actually quite supportive of his New York brethren and sistren, Cardi B is no exception. So, what exactly was he implying when he reposted the now-famous Cardi meme where her face is blurred out with a tagline that reads, "You just need to relax, Okurrrr?"

In my estimation, Funk Flex is simply inserting himself into the conversation concerning Cardi B's video rant - the one where she reminds everyone that she was a bad seed in the past. Flex's response involved him saying, "Fellas I don’t blame women in situations like this... be less thirsty to smash and you’ll be aight!"
Flex's caption is a clear indication of two things: the double standard over gender performance in rap race, and secondly, he's actually brandishing praise upon Cardi B's gangsta mettle. However, Flex did leave a few stones unturned - by not touching on the other double standards the video brings up - concerning the scrupulous expectations fans place on their idols. Cardi B can't be everything at once. Love her at her best, her worst, and somewhere in the middle. What are your thoughts on the matter?
