Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden has explained his motivation behind his refusal to publicly dispute with former girlfriend/rapper Somaya Reece, despite past taunts aimed at him.
Budden said transitioning from his 20’s into his 30’s allowed him to put his life into perspective.
“I feel like at 30 years old they asking me about a bunch of sh*t I don’t care about. I don’t care about Somaya Reece and all this other bullsh*t. This sh*t is worthless to me but it seems to be very important to you, which says you have an audience who this bullsh*t is very important to…If I don’t respond to it I don’t care about it. There’s not very many things I care about to respond to and Somaya Reece falls into that category. Music I care about, family I care about, friends and loved ones. Those are things that people should care about. I don’t care about responding to what Somaya Reece says. I don’t care about the top 10 list that BET put out. I could care less about these things. They hold absolutely no value to me at all.” (XXL Mag)
Over the summer, Reece attempted to expose Budden’s personal life in an interview.
While on the “Star & Bucwild Show,” Reece recently caused a stir by exposing intimate details about her relationship with rapper JoeBudden. When asked about her relationship with the rapper behind closed doors, Reece attempted to be sly and replied with “if he could have gotten past Cialis.com, then it might’ve happened. Cialis.com, for anyone that doesn’t know, is where people that have erectile dysfunction get pills,” Reece added. (CBS News)
Budden later responded to the remarks via his Twitter page.
“Chics bashing a n*gga’s d*ck = “I really liked him a lot & he hurt my feelings”…. Publicity is 1 hellofa drug.” (Joe Budden’s Twitter)
In January, Budden announced his relationship with Reece had officially ended.
“Because Somaya, I blocked your b*tch a**,” Budden said in avideo recording. “I blocked you on my Twitter and as soon as I leave a f*cking Tweet, your f*cking crazy dumb a** sends me a f*cking text. You better stop f*cking stalking me n*gga. Stop f*cking stalking my Twitter feed b*tch. That b*tch is f*cking stalking my Twitter page. That b*tch made a f*cking fake Twitter account…A**hole year is gone — [she] pretended to be really, really, really cool — and then after so long, she revealed her crazy Spanish colors and begin to act like a lunatic and getting out of a five year relationship, why do I want to be with anyone who is a f*cking lunatic? I just left someone who is a f*cking lunatic…I don’t want any beef with motherf*cking Somaya, I don’t want any beef with Gloria Velez, I don’t want any beef with Tahiry, I don’t want any beef with b*tches. Period. I’m off that. It’s a new year, it’s a new year, grow the f*ck up…” (YouTube)
