Benzino Addresses Royce Da 5’9 Twitter Clash, “That Ain’t Me”

After Slaughterhouse’s Royce Da 5’9 caught eyes last week after engaging in a controversial Twitter exchange allegedly with rapper Benzino, SOHH reached out to the former Source magazine co-owner to set the record straight.

Zino said despite the speculation, he has no association with the Twitter page Royce feuded with last week.

“Sh*t is crazy, man,” Zino told SOHH. “You know what’s so messed up? Honestly, like I’m not really a Twitter [person]. Like I’d rather say it to someone’s face or the next best thing — do an interview so they know its coming from me, but definitely, [the Twitter account] @King_Benzino ain’t me. I never had no Twitter and never will. I’m from the old school — I don’t put too much real estate in Twitter, man. ‘Cause at the end of the day, it’s just some sh*t that doesn’t exist, man. It’s like The Matrix.” (SOHH)

Royce’s exchange with the fake Zino took place last Friday (August 19).

“Blah Blah Blah @King_Benzino get over urself ur arrogance is offensive.. We will NEVER do a song 2gether.. EVER.. I don’t like you.. At all.,” he tweeted August 19th.

“Yo son… @King_Benzino That avi makes me sad.. Plz change it… You’re built like a meatball…” (Royce Da 5’9’s Twitter)

Royce’s remarks were answered by the impersonator using an unauthenticated Twitter account.

“@WeSupportEminem my meatballs in ur mothers mouth,” Zino allegedly responded.

“@Royceda59 lmao ur genuinely funny but how bout them sales? Not too funny huh?” (Benzino’s Twitter)

Last March, Zino formally said he no longer had issues with Slaughterhouse.

“Shout-out to Slaughterhouse,” Zino said in an interview with Mikey T The Movie Star. “Congratulations on that Eminem/Shady deal. I probably was real responsible for that. [laughs] Nah, but for real. Big up to my man Slam — Slam had talked to [a mutual] friend of ours from Detroit and I guess we straightened out [our beef]. It’s all good. We actually just put them in the last [Hip-Hop Weekly] magazine, talking about they signed to Shady Records — Slaughterhouse is like D12 on steroids. I say that, with no disrespect, just lyrical. They’re cats that’s lyrical in that whole frame of lyricism…At the end of the day, a n*gga beefing with motherf*ckers, unless it’s some real sh*t, I think beefing might not be the way to go moving on to 2012 because — it really has to be about music. If something jumps off, it jumps off. We don’t back down from nobody — but at the end of the day, if you want to get your business right and keep your business going, beef ain’t gonna help.” (Mikey T The Movie Star DVD)
