Uh-oh! What was once a friendly comparison has turned into a war of violent threats!
Rapper Action Bronson has been compared to Ghostface Killah many times throughout his career. He even used to post on Twitter that Killah was his “idol and major influence.”
However, that all changed about a week ago when Bronson dissed Killah on an episode of ESPN’s SportsNation.
When the rapper was talking about his new album Mr. Wonderful, he suddenly adopted a different tone. “[Killah’s] not rapping like this anymore” Bronson claimed before going on about how the older rapper, “needs something” to boost his career again.
Oh boy, was that a bad idea!
Those small yet targeted remarks spurred a huge public bashing for Bronson, when Ghostface Killah posted a six-minute YouTube video on Monday, in which he passionately responded to Bronson’s criticisms.
When we say that he responded “passionately,” we mean that there was a lot of cursing, a lot of insults and some very violent threats.
The main message, however, appeared when Killah told Bronson, “Who gives you the right to even mention my name out your muthaf**kin’ mouth….You done f**ked up. Listen man, you could never f**k with my pen, my n***a. My sword, my blade, whatever you want to call it, I’m too nasty for you. This is why the f**k you look up to me, and sound like me.”
If you think that’s bad, we won’t even mention the part where he talks about gutting Bronson like a pig. Ew.
If you want to see the whole video, here it is. But, consider yourself warned!
UPDATE: Bronson responded to the video on Twitter, posting “When ur wrong ur wrong and I was wrong. I apologized for the comments. I’ll always be a stand up human. Much love.”
Do you think Ghostface Killah will react positively to the apology, or is it too little too late? Let us know what you think!
