Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck has responded to Joe Budden, who said the rapper was hiding from him at last weekend's Rock The Bells concert in Washington, DC.
Speaking via a statement to Miss Info, Deck cleared the air on what happened upon shouting "F*ck Joe Budden" at the venue.
"No one was yelling for Slaughterhouse when I got on halfway through Raekwon's set," Deck explained. "After I said what I said onstage, I was never hid from nobody. I did Rae's set. Then I jumped into the crowd and signed autographs. Then I hung out backstage. I was there for Busta [Rhymes'] set. I was there for other sets. I was there until they started taking down the stage. I didn't come to the show to perform. I came to the show to talk to Joe." (Miss Info)
Raekwon also addressed his stance on the situation following the concert.
"I'm tired of this sh*t," Rae said in an interview. "I'm tired because for real it feels like I really don't have the energy to be going there with it because [Method Man] told me personally, 'Mind your business' and that's what I'm gonna do. But at the same time, Deck is Deck and I'm gonna rock 24/7, 365-66, I just look at the whole thing like, son don't want a problem. He don't want a problem. He done apologized to me, he done spoke with me, he told the world. Yeah he spoke with me apologizing, that's what the speaking with me was for...I told him to his face, 'You was wrong, I respect you being a man and apologizing but that don't hold no weight with the situation you and Mef going through.'" (Underground Hip Hop)
Joe Budden recently addressed Deck's Rock The Bells taunt.
"I'm not gonna beat anybody up," Joe promised on his live stream. "I'm saying that was my first initial reaction to hearing he did that dumb sh*t on stage which lets me know how much of a f*cking coward he is because we were on the stage and then get got off the stage roaming around...Then you go on stage and say that dumb sh*t, all the fans leave 'cause nobody supports that dumb sh*t and then you go hide somewhere like a f*cking f*ggot. Yeah he f*cking hid because I looked for him...There was no scuffle, no fight, I didn't even talk to Raekwon. I just went looking for n*ggas...But then I left because I'm making too much money to sacrifice it for beating him up. At the end of the day, it's not worth beating him up...You missed it, I had the beginning of the diss record set up and everything. Had the 'Triumph' beat, let it just come on, let him start...And then cut it off, 'No you don't, you don't bomb sh*t,' and then just f*cking go in." (YouTube)
Deck's last move against Budden was the release of "House N*gga" last week.
"First of all, you a blogger, YouTube goon/House n*gga," Deck raps. "I see you like to put your world online, ain't nobody checkin' for you/They checkin' for your girl's behind/While your homie in the bedroom, dustin' his eyes/While you filmin' dumb sh*t/They probably f*cked a few times/How you Slaughterhouse, you barely get a nod/I'm convict, benchin' daily in the yard/So I'm built like Optimus Prime/You couldn't see me with binoculars, I'm/way ahead of you...This n*gga's life's a publicity stunt/But he think he fever/I ain't a believer/Def Jam chucked him/They ain't feel him neither/Why are you talking like the Morpheous of rhymes/When my first sh*t sold more than all your sh*t combined...Mef let you live, I'ma set it/And I ain't on the phone but you get the text message...And I ain't gotta talk about Gloria Velez/Stalker a** n*gga, you were callin' her obsessed." ("House N*gga")
