I hope everyone flocking to Drake and Future's Summer Sixteen Tour brought some popcorn, because things are getting mighty entertaining. On the New York stop of the joint trek, Drake came after NYC radio station Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex, who had sided with Meek Mill during that whole Meek vs. Drake debacle.

Flex, who allegedly leaked the ghostwritten track that got some people questioning Drake's lyricism, was the target of Drizzy's freestyle on Thursday night, when the rapper strung out a series of chewy bits on stage:

“I told Hot 97 fire Funk Flex, then I’ll do your show," he rapped.

In the rant, Drake also confirmed he was in the studio with Kanye West. The two are rumored to have a joint album in the works.

Drake hasn't been holding back the shots on this tour. He's taken aim at Joe Budden, a known Drake-disser, and challenged him to write 25 more tracks about him before the MSG show. Hot 97 wedged themselves into that beef, with DJ Ebro saying that Eminem might diss Drake in defense of Budden, his Shady Records signee.

Funk Flex heard Drake's shot at MSG and took to Twitter with a tease:

Until Saturday at 7 p.m., folks.
