HHDX News Bits (Bun B, Benzino vs. Fat Joe)
Another Grammy nominee in the "Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group" award made headlines, but for far less flattering reasons. As Fat Joe enjoyed the success of his Grammy nominated single "Make It Rain," Ray Benzino prepared to go to press with claims of sleeping with Fat Joe's wife. According to the website MediaTakeOut.com, the next edition of the tabloid Hip-Hop Weekly will feature Benzino boasting about his alleged extra-marital affairs with Fat Joe's wife Lorena and Misa Hylton-Brim. Neither Fat Joe nor Benzino has publicly commented on the rumor. However, the allegation follows a behavior pattern that has seen Benzino engage in conflicts with Eminem and competing editors Julia Beverly (Ozone) and Elliott Wilson (XXL).
