Raekwon's Entourage Shed Light On Joe Budden Conflict
The beef between Budden and members of Wu-Tang, specifically Method Man, Raekwon, and Inspectah Deck, stemmed from comments Budden made questioning Method Man's position on Vibe's Best Rapper Alive tournament. Since then, the tension between the two has created conflict, prompting a confrontation between Raekwon and Budden backstage at Rock The Bells last month.
"To say something about a nigga like Meth is crazy," said Hanz, explaining to VladTV why he assaulted Budden. "Meth don't fuck with nobody and that's my big brother...[Budden] got punched in his face not only for being disrespectful to my big brother Rae, but he got punched in his face because he tried to throw it off on Meth and throw it off on Deck and all of that's family."
Many wondered whether Raekwon had initiated the assault, but Hanz assures that his actions were of his own doing.
"I'm not gonna sit here and say Rae made me do it," he admitted. "That was a spontaneous decision on my own because I felt like he was being disrespectful to my big brother. Did it happen because of Rae? Yeah, because I'm not gonna allow someone to disrespect my big brother in front of me."
He went on to add that, although Wu members reprimanded him for his violent actions, he was not regretful for what he did. Joe Budden and members of Wu-Tang Clan have yet to speak on recent developments.
