Wu-Tang Clan‘s Raekwon has continued to voice his opinions on Joe Budden and why he thinks Budden was wrong for challenging Method Man.
Explaining how he has never known the New Jersey-based emcee, the “Chef” promised he was not trying to promote an anti-Joe Budden campaign.
“I don’t like Joe Buddens,” Raekwon explained in an interview. “First and foremost, I never knew him and I ain’t really trying to make this no campaign, like ’cause he know he can’t f*ck with me but I’m just saying that at the end of the day I feel like he was wrong as a man before anything because number one, if you saying you got love for a n*gga, you don’t assassinate the n*gga.” (Rock Me TV)
Inspectah Deck recently described his Clan’s loyalty towards Method Man.
“I’m with my n*ggas, you know what I’m saying,” Deck said in an interview. “I’m guilty by association anyway. You diss one, you diss us all. So I’m living by that. But first of all, I heard him say it wasn’t directed towards the whole Wu, it was directed to Meth, which is still the whole Wu. You can use our name as much as you want to, you can say about Wu, we still legendary, monumental, influential motherf*ckers in the game son. Not just here, internationally man. There’s really nothing Joe Buddens could say really to Inspectah Deck to make me want to jump and do anything because personally, my legacy is bigger than his.” (In The Box TV)
Raekwon also questioned Joey’s rhyming skills last month.
“You can’t give that n*gga no shine, man,” Raekwon said in an interview. “First of all, everybody know that he’s not even nowhere near n*ggas, you know what I mean? I ain’t got nothing against Joe Budden, I don’t know him, I don’t care for him like that, but when he mentioned one of my brothers, it’s like ‘Yo, you outta character, B.’ And on a real note, you’re not better than anybody over here. So you know, to me, that was just something I feel he jumped in the pool with no water and didn’t realize he made a mistake, but that’s not my problem, he ain’t mention me.” (Akira The Don)
Budden released a freestyle record last week which made multiple references to Mef.
“N*ggas is scared of the truth/They doing interludes in every interview talking about how they prepared to shoot/How thoughtful, won’t resort to getting near a booth,” Joe rappeed. “Thought so, what I do to them is unlawful, boss dude ain’t got a higher up to report to, just giving yourself a bad name…Got all them years rapping, nothing else happening/You need a day to day, old heads, with no other way to get paid/They gasping, time-out go take a break from the clay and grab a Gatorade/A bad contract, team can’t make a trade/Majors f*ckin’ you in the a**/You gonna stay a slave…Sh*t is f*cked up and I blame it on the way it was paved/So I’ll chill for the sake of your age/You’re great live, but let me know when that stage get appraised.” (DJ Green Lantern’s OnDaSpot Freestyle)
