It all started with Joe Budden publicly displaying his dislike of the VIBE’s Best Rapper Ever brackets and Budden claimed to be a better rapper than most rappers today, including Method Man. That’s when things slowly started spiraling out of control with Inspectah Deck taking shots with a diss track and a public diss at the Rock The Bells concert. Now Joe Budden is coming back with an apology… sort of.
“I really am sorry for the Method Man initial move. When I say I’m apologizing, it’s because Joe Budden is truly sorry for something Joe Budden did and it was in bad taste. Now, because there’s been a lot of other parties being involved, a lot of parties that don’t really have anything to do with it, like they’re just in it because of association…From this point forward, if any one of them n*ggas say something to me, that I do not like, or any one of them n*ggas say my name in a negative light, the peace treaty is f*cking over and the ‘No Comment’ movement is over…Anybody else, associated with that n*gga, affiliated or feel my name should roll outta their f*cking mouth…do it from this point on, and there won’t be nothing Royce Da 5’9 can do to stop what I’m doing…Everybody loves Wu-Tang but the same way the young n*ggas respect the older n*ggas, the older n*ggas are gonna have to start respecting the younger n*ggas. That’s what’s gonna have to start happening.”
