Funkmaster Flex reclaims the No. 1 spot from DJ Clue

Funkmaster Ford

Between “Car Wars” and the “Funkmaster Flex Custom Car and Bike Show Tour” it’s easy to forget that the DJ still has a radio show on Hot 97. For years Flex had owned the night, from 7 p.m to midnight, but when DJ Clue moved onto 105.1, he lost the No. 1 slot. Since then a rivalry has been brewing between the two stations.

Given that Flex has an office in Dobbs Ferry, that made it easy for us to choose which spinner to side with. And now, according to The Daily News, we made the right choice. Flex is back on top, with 12.6 percent of the 18- to 34-year-old demo, compared with Clue’s 9.6 percent. Not quite as cool as a tricked out Ford Expedition, but pretty close.
