Joe Budden reacts to Beanie Sigel & Jay-Z Beef.

Joe Budden has become the latest rapper to react toward Beanie Sigel’s unexpected Jay-Z “Average Cat” diss song and explained why going at the rap mogul is a losing battle.

From Joey’s perspective, emcees should pay homage to the contributions Hov continues to make in the rap game.

“Beanie Sigel going at Jay-Z, huh,” Budden said during a live blog chat. “Is that what it’s come to in hip-hop? Hip-Hop is f*cking wack. Why he ain’t never go at him before, that’s what I wanna know. That sh*t is weak. N*ggas dissing Jay-Z is weak. Aight, I don’t wanna hear that sh*t. Beans is nice and I like Beans, I just feel like n*ggas dissing Hov is pointless and mind you, I’m very aware that I dissed Hov countless times, I dissed Hov a bunch of times. I am so so aware of that. I did not diss Hov recently…I’ve matured, Jay is d*mn near a billionaire and he just performed at Yankee Stadium, diss him for what? Even if you rap better than Jay-Z, which some people do today, you’re gonna lose. If you go against Jay-Z, the fight is automatically fixed and I really like Jay-Z and I really like The Blueprint 3 for the most part, killed the intro, he’s got a bunch of songs on there I really like…You take Jay-Z away from hip-hop, what do you have? Is it the same? No.” (World Star Hip Hop)

The record also caught fellow New York rapper Fabolous’ attention.

“I jus heard a JayZ diss record by Beanie Siegel..,” Fab wrote Friday (October 30). “That’s ill to me.. And the record is hard! Never thought i would hear a JayZ diss song by Beanie Siegel….WOW..jus wow.. (Affion Crockett chris brown on larry king impression voice) To me its disappointing, i hate 2 c family fight.. But i dont know either side of the story.. So im neutral & enjoyin the music, as u should i made JayZ & Beanie Siegel a trending topic not even tryin to.. SMH…lol..i hate hip hop family splits & beef’s… the Cam vs. Jim & Juelz, the Cash Money vs. Juve, B.G. & Turk.. Dr. Dre vs. Snoop… all bad.” (Fabolous’ Twitter)

Citing Beans’ State Property and clothing line, Hov pointed out the rapper’s misconstrued accusations after the diss song dropped.

“He has a lot to complain about,” Jay jokingly said during a press conference. “Not me. Well Beanie Sigel at the time, and you can look it up if you like, just to be honest, was driving two Bentleys, I don’t know how. It’s impossible to drive two cars at one time with his mama in the sticks and selling 800,000 records. I don’t know what more you can do for somebody at that point. What people choose to do when they attain that type of success, you know, at some point you have to look in the mirror and look at yourself. Beanie Sigel had a record deal, a record label, and a clothing line. And never went platinum, ever. I don’t know in the history of rap has anyone done so much with so little. I don’t know what more you can do for a person at that point. But a record deal, that’s normal. A record label and a clothing line, so, if that’s not pushing a person, sh*t. Thank-you.” (La Rue Du Hip Hop)

Writing via Twitter, Memphis Bleek expressed his initial confusion toward Beans’ “Average Cat” diss.

“Just waking up my phone going crazy over this segiel sh*t,” Bleek wrote Friday (October 30) morning. “I just seen son at power house wasn’t nothing now its something….. I’m lost on that…. Guess that’s how the rap game work….F*ck bleek 3 haaa that’s a good one…And for the rec….I can’t diss that’s my nigg we gotta get up an chop it up that’s all..He know me that’s all I could say…” (Memphis Bleek’s Twitter)

Joe Budden airs out Tahiry Break Up

Joe Budden recently discussed the details surrounding his break-up with Tahiry and said he was thankful he did not follow through and marry the one-time King Magazine covergirl.
Click here to find out more!

Speaking via a blog broadcast, Budden spoke on the couple’s differences.

“My life is pretty routine and predictable,” Budden said during a blog broadcast. “i don’t need much, I’m not controlling, I’m not jealous, I’m not insecure, I’m not any of the things that Tahiry would say that I am. I’m like cool as a fan — the really sad part about my entire five-year relationship that I am just now getting out of, you can call it arrogant, you can call it cocky, you can call it whatever the f*ck you want to call it, I was ready to marry my significant other. Let me just say that. Thank the f*cking lord above that that did not happen…It would have been a whole lot worse if I had married Tahiry. I went from being ready to settle down — and now that I am outside of that relationship, it’s easy to see that I spent five years settling.” (World Star Hip Hop)

During Tahiry’s Shade 45 interview earlier this month, Budden called in to explain his stance.

“I haven’t been updating JoeBuddenTV as much, these websites that I drive traffic to, they just really thirsty to put anything Joe Budden-associated on their site,” Budden told radio personality Angela Yee. “They can suck d*ck. I’m listening… I wanna know what’s going on right now, what is this interview about? It’s about Complex online…It’s now, people are gonna ask, whatever people that are representing you are using the break-up as a bargaining chip…It’s looking like it’s in bad taste, it’s making five years a gimmick… You wouldn’t like it… Tahiry, listen — I didn’t call to speak to [Tahiry]. Angela, it’s not all about all fairness, Tahiry don’t know nothin’ about nothin’. She trying to be in a game where she don’t know a thing about anything…So if you gonna use this as some type of bargaining chip, then you gonna sell a story, get a check for it…Let me tell you something, I do interviews every single day, every day, I do an interview…Good-bye.” (Team Yee TV)

Tahiry previously promised she would not talk badly about Budden in interviews.

“I just feel like — I’m never going to speak bad about Joey,” Tahiry promised. “I love him. Five years. It was a long time. We were just growing apart. We were not in the same zip codes. I just didn’t feel like after five years we were building that foundation together. For a long time it was, ‘Joe, Joe, Tahiry, Tahiry.’ When it was beneficial, it was Joe and Tahiry. But you know after five years, you’re supposed to feel like you’re building something. I didn’t feel like we were building anything.” (Complex)

Footage of a leaked “break-up” conversation between Tahiry and Budden landed online last month.

“You better not start acting like you’re not the f*cking insecure boyfriend that you are,” she said in the video. “Get the f*ck away from me. People think I’m crazy because I’m completely f*cking spazzing on camera but you’re the f*cking retarded one, you just hide it well. Saying this crazy sh*t, ‘Look at Tahiry with two f*cking laptops, she’s retarded.’ No n*gga, you’re retarded. Give me my f*cking phone back and stop playing games with me…Stop recording me, I’m serious. [crying] I’m dead a** serious. You need f*cking help. Stop with this Twitter sh*t about me too because you’re f*cking retarded…” (Pulse Report)

Crooked I to Benzino: “You disrespect SlaughterHouse, You disrespect Me”

Slaughterhouse’s Crooked I recently addressed Benzino calling out certain members in his rap group and pledged his loyalty toward Royce Da 5’9, Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz.

In addition to standing by his team, Crooked also explained why he ignored Zino’s taunts over the summer.

“Some dudes I have respect for and some dudes I don’t,” he explained in an interview about rap beefs. “It’s like me sitting back and watching Benzino say, ‘I respect Crooked but Slaughterhouse is over-rated.’ I’m Slaughterhouse. If you disrespect Slaughterhouse then you are disrespecting me. But what am I going to do? I am not going to waste my breath rapping a million bars about somebody. If I did that, I would put it on an album and get paid. I’m not going to air anybody out for free. All of these little beefs pop up and to me they are just silly. To me it’s like, you do something to me when I’m on your Coast and I’ll do something to you when you’re on mine.” (All Hip Hop)

Writing via Twitter last month, Royce reached out to his group members to get their take on Zino’s rap challenge.

“Aye #slaughterhouse ? @mousebudden @joellortiz @therealcrookedi Ya’ll wanna do something bout #Bendreamo ?? lol,” he wrote yesterday (September 3). “Just kidding ya’ll…@mousebudden Nah Im f*ckin with you….I dont want you 2 waste ur ink.” (Royce Da 5’9’s Twitter)

Budden also publicly turned down the challenge via his Twitter page.

“@RoyceDaFive9 4 what ??,” Joey responded. “If he get it, EVERYBODY gets it… & doin that right now ????u already know… NO COMMENT !!!!! Lol” (Joe Budden’s Twitter)

Benzino lashed out at Slaughterhouse, labeling them “overrated” in an interview last summer.

“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)

SOHH.

Joe Budden gets props from Eminem.

The tweet above is self explanatory. Following the whole SlaughterHouse/Shady Records rumors, Joe Budden received a phone call from the world’s favorite Caucasian rapper and got big props for his Cypher verse. Seems like a big step in the right direction, from what I’ve always read around Eminem only starts to develop a relationship and or starts having phone calls with Artists he plans to work with in the future.

I wonder how 50 feels?
