When Hot 97 wouldn't let Nas "lynch" a fake Jay-Z at Summer Jam, he got on rival station Power 105 and lost it. He called Cam'ron "wack," told N.O.R.E. to step his raps up, and referred to Def Jam and Hot 97 as "evil empires." The kicker came when he personally attacked Funkmaster Flex, accusing him taking payola and promoting a "corny" format.
