Styles P & Joe Budden Beef, In Response To Kendrick Lamar's "Control" Verse
Styles P appears to threaten lyrical and physical harm on Joe Budden, says he's in the streets while Joe Budden is on the Internet.
Longtime eOne Entertainment label-mates became foes just minutes ago, as Joe Budden and Styles P engaged in a tiff on Twitter. The members of Slaughterhouse and The L.O.X./D-Block respectively have collaborated on 2011's "Put Some Money On It Remix," from the 'House's 2011 self-titled EP. However, today Budden warned Styles not to "play with" him, on Twitter.
The incident happened this afternoon after Styles P tweeted that Kendrick Lamar had received no challengers by noon today (August 13) following his "Control (HOF)" verse claiming he, an emcee from Compton, California, is the current "King of New York."
Whoever he called out was supposed to have chirped back by 12 noon!— g -host (@therealstylesp) August 13, 2013
Budden responded to his collaborator, claiming that Styles P is among those who perhaps should have.
@therealstylesp he called out everybody. U included.— Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) August 13, 2013
This response prompted Styles to claim he's never considered any artist a king of the city, besides one of his early Bad Boy Records label-mates and collaborators, The Notorious B.I.G. He also urged Budden not to "play with" him, warning to "fuck shit up lyrically and physically."
@JoeBudden 1st and foremost I have never acknowledged any kings but biggie ny or not ny 2nd of all don't play with me I fuck shit up!— g -host (@therealstylesp) August 13, 2013
@JoeBudden lyrically and physically so chill and save your Internet bullshit 4 the next ninja— g -host (@therealstylesp) August 13, 2013
Then, Budden urged Styles to call him, waving off a perceived threat from the onetime Ruff Ryders/Interscope Records hit-maker.
@therealstylesp u sound mad about something… u know my #, type the threats to a nigga that give a fuck.— Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) August 13, 2013
Styles responded "Cool" to Budden's reply, then questioned the pair's relationship:
Just don't @ me talking like we folk if we ain't!— g -host (@therealstylesp) August 13, 2013
Afterwards, Styles stated that "I ain't beefin' with nobody; I'm chillin." He then said that while he is a street dude, Joe Budden lives on the Internet. He also said that he remains open to a physical altercation, provided police are not involved. Then Styles tweeted the location of one of his juice bars, where he is currently headed.
I shouldn't have thrown the physically part in that was ignorant ! But I don't fuck with joe like that so it offended me!im street he is net— g -host (@therealstylesp) August 13, 2013

Budden has not directly responded to Styles at the time of press.
While Joe Budden has been frequently associated with disputes in his career ranging from Jay Z and Game, to Wu-Tang Clan and most recently, Consequence, Styles P has historically maintained a more passive profile. Styles' bandmate Jadakiss did however launch The L.O.X. and D-Block into a beef with Beanie Sigel's State Property over a decade ago.
