Benzino’s disdain for Eminem and his loyal legion of fans has been well documented over the years. But the former co-publisher of The Source magazine and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta personality has been on a certifiable rampage over the last several days, firmly aiming his vitriol toward Slim Shady, Royce Da 5’9 and now, Joyner Lucas.
Shortly after the beef exploded, Lucas joined in on the Benzino slander, accusing the fitness-obsessed rapper/executive of trying to solicit him for a Verzuz battle. But as 2020 became nothing more than a bad memory, Benzino continued to unleash his rage on Twitter and warned Lucas to stop running his mouth.
“@joynerlucas I will fuck u up u keep speaking my name,” he wrote. “You got on warning Pussy. @joynerlucas you ain’t never step foot in Roxbury u bitch ass nigga. U from Worcester mass you punk mf, u never was bout that life. Don’t let them pussies get u hurt. Yea I went in your dms because your musics trash like @royceda59 U got me fucked up I’ll have u touched fuckboi.”
“@joynerlucas I’ll make Boston a no fly zone for u pussy keep playing wit me,” he concluded. “U think shits sweet? I’ll fuck u up.”
The social media mayhem kicked off on December 29 when Nickle Nine tweeted how interesting it would be if Benzino joined the popular audio-only app Clubhouse — while throwing a few lightweight jabs his way at the same time.
“I can’t wait till Benzino get on Clubhouse,” he wrote.” A Front row seat to the most obligatory pseudo toxic masculine tough guy talk the world has ever seen. Please Clap for this hoe ass n-gga so he can try to move on. He stuck in 06. Thank you… Peace, Peace.”
That gave Benzino the perfect excuse to go off on the Motor City MC and, once again, accuse him of being nothing more than Eminem’s slave.
“@Royceda59 you had EMs platform this long and still irrelevant?” he wrote in part. “You still ain’t blown? You been sucking his dick so long you forgot that ur an artist too. It wasn’t t long ago when you going at him so now u think n-ggas won’t go at him because of u? U a whole Pussy our here.”
