Slaughterhouse’s Royce Da 5’9 may no longer have an interest at beefing with Canibus but the Detroit-bred emcee has given his complete focus to rap rival Benzino.
Going at Zino on Twitter, Royce went after the former Source magazine owner.
“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 an alleged Zino, however, his page has yet be authenticated by Twitter.
“@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)
Royce, not backing down, continued the back-and-forth exchange.
“lol @King_Benzino You seen “Ms Nickle”? Nigga go put ur tongue on a pole while it’s 30 below freezing…,” he tweeted back.
“Im Elated off my sales.. Im #1’d out.. RT @King_Benzino: @Royceda59 lmao ur genuinely funny but how bout them sales? Not too funny huh?” (Royce Da 5’9’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)
Following the video, Slaughterhouse’s Crooked I gave SOHH his reaction.
“It’s news to me,” Crooked told SOHH when informed about Benzino’s peace talk. “I never even heard about it. If he did, he did, you know what I mean? I’m this type of person, man, I’m glad he [dropped his grievances] if he really did. I’ll search and see it. I’m glad he went online and said some positive things because he also went online and said some negative things [about the group]. So it’s always good to do that, but I’m just the kind of dude who likes to get on the phone with people or sit down with them face-to-face and figure out if sh*t is good or if it’s on some media bullsh*t. You know what I’m saying?” (SOHH)
