New York rapper Saigon recently discussed his beef with Joe Budden and said his prior issues with the emcee would not stop him from collaborating with artists like Budden rival Ransom.
The "Yard Father" also said Budden deserved to be assaulted over the summer by Raekwon's camp backstage during a Rock The Bells tour show.
"F*ck Budden man," Sai said about collaborating with the rapper's rival, Ransom. "F*ck that dude, that dude is a clown. Nobody's thinking about Joe Budden right now. I'm embarrassed that I let this guy take me out of my zone for a few weeks 'cause that ain't my thing. I've been in this game too long, that's his alley, he does that on purpose -- I'm playing his game, so he's really right now thinking he's out-smarting me. But my whole plan was to just punch his whole head off but I'm glad somebody got a chance to do it because he deserved it. He deserved it, he kinda ignited that, you don't invite another man to your d*ck. You don't say, 'I don't iike you, you can suck my d*ck,' come on man. Where I come from, that's fighting words, you gotta be ready to back that kind of sh*t up on sight. He's a very talented artist but some of the decisions he makes is gonna get him hurt."

Although Saigon was engaged in a brief rap battle against Joey, he recently said he still maintained a level of respect for Slaughterhouse, which consists of Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9 and Crooked I.
"Shout-out to Slaughterhouse," Saigon said in an interview. "People going around saying I've been talking dirty about Slaughterhouse, nah, I got much love and respect for everybody in that, aside from Joe Budden, everybody else, even Joe Budden, I ain't really got no issues with that man. Like I said, when we see each other or whatever, we gonna deal with it like men. I'm not saying I'ma do something to him, I'm saying, we need to sit down and polly." (Vlad TV)
Rap veteran Benzino recently downplayed Slaughterhouse's buzz.
"I think them n*ggas is mad overrated, real talk," Zino said in an interview. "Yeah, them n*ggas is mad overrated yo, for real. I don't know what all the hype about them is. And I knew Tahiry was gonna leave Joe Buddens, you blog too much homie. You blog too much, stop blogging man and watch out [for] where your girl's at, man. You blog too much homie. Them n*ggas is overrated. I'm not f*cking with Slaughterhouse, f*ck them n*ggas. F*ck Royce Da 5'9, [it began] with some sh*t about we trying to interview Slaughterhouse and they don't want to give us an interview because of Kim 'Fat B*tch' O'Sorry H*e is wife to the manager of Royce Da 5'9 and they don't want to give us an interview so like f*ck them n*ggas man. Crooked I though, that's my n*gga. I can't front on Crooked I. I don't even have no beef, I just think them n*ggas is overrated. I don't even know who Joell Ortiz is, I'm not up on Joell Ortiz -- it's not that I don't like [Budden], I just think the n*ggas is overrated. I don't see where all the hype at, not just them n*ggas because I get a lot of hate out there but my thing is, I know I got some banging sh*t -- I bet you the Made Men could tear their a**holes out. Why not?" (57th Ave)
Former D-Block member J-Hood also dissed Slaughterhouse and held their age against them.
"N*ggas thought I wasn't gon' say nothing, like I wasn't gonna address it," Hood said in an interview. "F*ggot a** H*e Buddens, Joyce Da 5'9 and motherf*cking, what's that n*gga's name? Slanted I, Crooked I, whatever the f*ck your name is my n*gga. Y'all n*ggas are a** my n*gga. Y'all n*ggas are rolling with a n*gga that got a n*gga locked up, got the homie Ransom locked up after he went to your homie's house and smacked the sh*t outta him, he ain't smack the sh*t outta him, his man smacked the sh*t outta him. Next couple days after that the n*gga was locked up. I don't want no beef with y'all n*ggas, you getting n*ggas locked up. Plus y'all n*ggas is 30 plus my n*gga. Old head a** n*ggas. 'Pump Pump Pump It Up,' f*ck outta here...You and your mans talking that Slaughterhouse bullsh*t, get outta here with that. You trying to come at Method Man and Wu-Tang, they paved the way for you. How the f*ck you gonna try to disrespect a legend?" (Major Moves DVD)
