Drake and Future brought their “Summer Sixteen” tour to Madison Square Garden on Thursday night (8/4) for their first of eight NYC-area shows (and first of six in NYC proper). Like at the other stops on the tour so far, Drake played just about everything you’d want to hear, but he also did a freestyle where he said “fuck Hot 97,” in response to previous beef he’s had with some of the station’s DJs (including Funkmaster Flex, who played the “10 Bands” reference track on air that was used to support Meek Mill’s argument that Drake uses ghostwriters).

UPDATE: The news that Drake said “fuck Hot 97″ was initially broken by Complex, who have since posted an update saying that while he did diss Funk Flex, he may not have said “fuck Hot 97.” You can watch a video of his freestyle:

#drake ain't too happy that #hot97 said he was bout to diss #eminem and said him and #kanyewest were in the studio
