The “Trendsetter” rapper joked about reporting her dad’s social media accounts and spoke at length about the strains in their relationship.
Leray’s career has been a focal point for her father and he even almost ruined the rapper’s opportunity to collaborate with Nicki Minaj on “Blick Blick.” There were rumors that he laughed at the first-week sales of Leray’s Trendsetter, but Benzino quickly denied he would do such a thing.
As soon as one viral moment between Leray and Benzino ends, another seems to kick up, and in a recent interview, the “No More Parties” hitmaker joked that she wants to take control of her father’s online presence.
“Just pray. I pray,” she said. “I tried to hit up Instagram like…I don’t even know who to contact but I’m hitting headquarters like, ‘Report!’ You crazy?! Yes! I try to report him. He does not know the off button! My dad doesn’t understand like, yo. I love my dad because it’s like, family’s everything, right? But blood don’t make you family and when you start doing sh*t that starts questioning your loyalty and who you are as a person, especially to your own daughter, like, alright, bro.”
“I forgive. I have faith. That’s why I’m still here and I’m able to be like, you know what? [It’s] my father,” Leray continued. She was asked about squaring up with Benzino. “If I could, I’d knock him the f*ck out, right?! I would if I could!” she joked. “No, I just have to pray for him. I want him to heal offline. I really do. That’s how we’re going to be able to get better.”
